Rather more impressive than I was expecting, set in a quiet backstreet,It is as Graham describes below but it would seem the beer choice has picked up a little, Six Handpumps in all ,two sets of three, only one set were in use with a choice of Hopback Summer Lightening, St Austell Tribute and a GK offering of Yardbird. A nice pub in a pleasant setting.

A locals' pub, but not in the usual meaning of the term, this being the rather select Hyde area of Winchester. The interior, which extends round an island bar, is fitted out as an Edwardian drawing room, with furnishings and décor to match. It also boasts one of the poshest bar billiards areas that I have seen, in its own little alcove. Very civilised, if you are in that frame of mind. Ales from the wider Greene King range and condition seemed good; now Cask Marque accredited. There are some pavement tables at the front, with a beer garden behind.

Yet another GK pub in the area, though this one does sport a rather original style: large etched glass windows, dark green walls, muted sodium lighting, lots of framed prints and a wood floor covered with rugs - quite the cosy Victoriana. Along with the clientele it felt very upper-middle class. Apparently it has been refitted in the recent past to much disdain but I thought it was alright, based on this being my inaugural visit. Ale-wise we were stuck with the less-than-mesmerising prospect of GK brews; Old Golden Hen (not brilliant), IPA and Morland Original (fine). If you’ve got all day in Winchester it’s worth putting this on the list for curiosity value.
