A noted music venue just behind the station. Despite the imposing size of the building from outside, the bar is a fairly small cellar-type room at the lower level. The décor has a pretty basic feel, although there are a couple of interesting train compartment type seating bays and a pool table. The music venue is in 'the Barn' to the rear. On handpump were Ringwood Best, Boondoggle, Courage Directors and Old Rosie cider. Opening hours have been erratic in the past but now seem to have stabilised with all day opening most days.

Music venue situated near to the station which can prove handy.

Lively town centre pub handy for a quick pint whilst waiting for a train. The atmosphere was friendly when I went in, no music on at the time but that's obviously the crowd they're aiming at. There were some strange people in, but everyone seemed happy. The pint of RIngwood I sampled wasn't best kept but was drinkable nonetheless.

Not my first choice of pub in Winchester, but I wouldn't mind going back.

Very much a music venue, the beers are well kept but not great, slightly above average price for the area. On the ale side regional brewers rather than the industrial giants who supply this pub with the usual old range of kegs. Basic decor, lots of posters for forthcoming bands etc, big pool table and a balcony bar available for hire.

Only a brief stop due to a desperate need for a kebab and the train home after a hard days crawling, so slammed a half - but was in long enough to take enjoy the left-field vibe of the place. Definitely an evening stop though, can't imagine too much life in here during daylight hours - apparently not open until 5pm anyway. A friendly (and frighteningly skinny) barmaid serving the liquid tucker including a couple of good ales, my Banks' Sunshine was in decent form. Live music and pool table seems to have this place aimed at the younger student drinker. The interior was pretty basic. I’d probably go here for the gigs if I lived locally.
