Quinno _ left this review about The Albion

A very swift one before the train – and I was rewarded with a superb Flowerpots IPA (NBSS 4). In my view this is the most consistent pub in Winchester for cask, and shame on me for not planning better so I could stay longer. ‘Earthy boozer’ is an apt description. I’ll be back… 8.5

November 2016
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. Rated 8

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

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Albion

Distinctive corner pub near the station, just begging you to go inside and take a look. Once done, you find an angled L-shape bar with simple furniture and unfussy decoration. Four Flower Pots beers available on the handpumps: Pots Bitter, Goodens Gold, Perridge Pale (£3.60, and very good) and the strong IPA.

As described by others, this superb town boozer is run and stocked by Flowerpots Brewery. Consequently all the ales are theirs,but that's no bad thing. Welcoming staff and a relaxed atmosphere made for a great visit. My pint of Bitter was in perfect condition. I'd be very happy to come back any time, and I certainly agree with BF, below, that it's the perfect place to start or end a crawl.
