Excellent no-frills local serving good beer from Flowerpots and Alfred's. A V-shaped pub on the crossroads just down from the station with plain wooden floors and furnishings and few distractions. Food is limited to home-made pies and scotch eggs.

Update
The French cafe feel is no longer evident,it is though a solid modern but proper pub,the Goodens Gold is still good.
March 2015
A corner pub close to the train station, it appears to have had a recent makeover and the Red and Cream colour scheme inside made me think it had a French cafe feel,four pumps on the bar with three on the go, all from Flowerpots Brewery, my pint of Gooden's Gold was indeed good as gold. Well worth calling in whether coming from or going to the station.

As noted below, this has been taken over by the Flowerpots brewery of Cheriton, so I was keen to snaffle a couple in here. The interior has been stripped back a bit and is now a little more alehouse in style (if the alehouse in question had had its interior design sourced from John Lewis) – stripped floorboards and a pleasing red colour scheme. An inverse TARDIS of a building, a much smaller bar footprint than you’d expect. A number of ales on from Flowerpots, I tried the Perridge (excellent) and the Porter (a little flat). Worth mentioning the prices too – cheap as chips for Winchester, well-under £3.50. Will be back here again sooner rather than later. Score upped by a point.

July 2007
Small but enjoyable stop-off near the station. Looks a little rough from the outside but don't be put off - this was one of the better pubs on our crawl on Saturday. A lively evening atmosphere with a good selection of ales (my Gooden's Gold was very well served) made for an enjoyable half hour. Seems to be big on the jazz here as well – take your pick on that one, I suppose. Worth factoring in a slow one here before your train. Rated 7
