Real Ale Ray left this review about The Witch's Brew

We had the pleasure of meeting the landlady on our visit, who was very friendly and welcoming. As Moby mentions below, she is an actual witch and she took great delight showing me her magical tattoo on her right forearm. Witch or not, she's obviously very popular with the locals. We sat in the back room near the bar and it wasn't long until we were all chatting away and enjoying a good beer. Six ales on stillage, so we went for the Langham Hip Hop, which was very quaffable. The front of the pub also had some alfresco drinking with some bench seating, enclosed by a low fence and a latched gate, to stop the owner's dog running straight into the road.

A fairly new micro pub with an interesting slant, the landlady is (apparently) actually a Witch, before becoming a pub she ran the place as a magic shop. The bar/servery is to the rear of the building, walking through a couple of rooms to get there,there is a mildly humorous nod to the occult in some of the decor and various curios scattered around the place. There were four beers on plus a Cider on my visit, I had a couple of pints on my stay, Test Wallop Gold and Route 13 session pale both on gravity dispense. Its quite a fun place but was a bit quiet on my visit, well worth a look though.

The latest and welcome addition to the ever growing micropub scene in the Southampton area.
