It was a bit of a mission to find,especially after a day at The Winchester Beer Festival but the trek was well worth the effort, It has an attractively green tiled exterior ,inside is a fairly large single room curved around the bar, fairly traditionally furnished it put me in mind of an old style east London boozer, the place was buzzing on Friday evening. Being a Greene King pub I wasn't expecting to much on the beer front but was pleasantly surprised,5 handpulls and another 3 beers on stillage behind the bar only two were Greene King related, IPA and Old Speckled Hen, one was a house beer Fulflood 1772 which I imagine is a rebadged beer from the GK stable, but I didn't confirm this.There were a couple of beers from local Red Cat Brewery another two beers I fail to remember plus my choice of Wild Weather Mudslinger which turned out to be my best beer of the day despite some very good stuff earlier at the beer festival,I stayed for another.A cracking pub, I highly recommend seeking this pub out, I for one will return.A note of caution, the current opening times are 12-2.30,4.30-11 Mon - Thurs but open from 12 all day Fri, Sat and Sunday.

Friendly staff, good range of ales and pleasant surroundings. I would agree with some of the comments below about the pub having a somewhat more modern feel after its (relatively) recent transformation, but it's an enjoyable place to relax, read a paper and enjoy a nice pint.

Weeke is the first parish on leaving the city to the north west beyond where the original Roman wall was located. The parish is approximately bounded by the Roman road to Cirencester (the modern Andover Road) and the Roman Road to Salisbury (the modern Sarum Road). The Fulflood Arms is at the end of a terrace of houses. It is on the corner of Cheriton Road and Western Road. It does not appear in the 1871 census but was completed probably late in that year. The fascia of the pub consists of glazed dark green tiles with the words "Winchester Brewery Co. Ltd" and "The Fulflood Arms" embossed on it, but today it is Greene King pub. This boozer has been part of the Winchester community for over 130 years and is one of the best kept secrets of Winchester. A real locals pub it has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere upon entry. Inside the victorian ambience is continued with many prints of that period and the decor is tastefully re-furbished complimenting the architecture. I take it that at one time it was two bars, but now one room surrounds the central bar. This was the first stop of a mini pub crawl my brother and I did and we were a little bit spoilt by this excellent boozer. It's not easy to find but the effort is worth it. 5 real ales on hand pump and a recent posting has St Austell Brewery - Tribute 4.2%, Itchen Valley Brewery - Godfathers 3.8% (Local), Upham Brewery - Stakes Ale 4.6% (Local), Springhead Brewery - Leveller 4.8%, Westons - Old Rosie (cider) 7.3%. I had a pint of Pots ale and it was in excellent form. There is a bar billiards table (the only one left in Winchester) and also a dart board where three teams play their home matches. A rather nice Wurlitzer juke box (not working on our visit) was hidden behind two of the many comfy Chesterfield sofas you can lounge in. The toilets are clean and wooden paneled (of course) and there's a small beer garden. If I could afford to live in Winchester I'd never leave this pub and I only give this a 9 because one day I may find a better pub.
