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

Unusual backstreet corner pub, but with an impressive exterior and relatively large windows. The multi-room interior has a range of different-sized seating and dining areas around the central counter, all with upmarket furniture and decor. Larger-than-expected rear beer garden with a very proficient rock quartet playing when I called by. Although a Greene King house (run by the local Little Pub Group), there was no sign of its beers on the two banks of three handpumps, although the 'house' Kings Brew is probably re-badged Hardy & Hanson Best Bitter. The other available real ale was Tribute (£2.40, half).

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.
