A Better experience than last time out,it was populated and there was bar staff present,the same beer line up as with Aqualungs visit,the Purity UBU was decent.
21/3/15
A topical pub to visit on the day of the eclipse,the actual eclipse was quite a non event due to low grey cloud and unfortunately the service in the pub mirrored the astronomical event in that it was non existent at 11:30 AM. I waited a moment or two called out but nothing appeared so I left ,I had a beer festival to attend.Shame as it looked half decent.

This small old pub has been more than well described below. The pub web site boasts the fact that there is no piped music and no fruit machines, it's a shame they don't feel the same way about the large TV screen in the front room which for such a small place is very obtrusive even though it was turned off on my visit.
The beer choice from the four hand pumps was mainstream and uninteresting consisting of Hobgoblin, Doom Bore, Landlord and Purity UBU. I went for the Landlord which was in reasonably good nick but at £4.30 scandalously priced. It's in the 2017 GBG but I wouldn't return.

The Eclipse Inn is a small but attractive pub tucked between buildings on the Main Square in Winchester centre. It’s been well described by previous reviewers so no need to repeat any of the history or decor. The key point of this pub is that it is small. The front room is small, the back room is even smaller and the toilets should not be utilised by anyone who suffers from claustrophobia.
I believe it’s had a bit of a tidy up of late and is now a bit smarter inside and we certainly found in comfortable for a pint, especially as we managed to get one of the four tables in the back room.
Beer wise Double Drop and Black Jack were available from the local Hampshire Flack Mannor Brewery, alongside Doombar and Caledonian Breweries seasonal Brewers Passion, and both the Flack Mannor brews were in good condition, especially the dark ruby porter.
We popped in for an early Sunday lunchtime pint, at which time there was a limited Sunday food menu on. We didn’t eat , but the table next to us did and what they had made us slightly regret we had over indulged at the Hotel breakfast bar a couple of hours earlier.
Certainly would have this pub on the list for a return visit when in Winchester again.
