A big change here since my last visit, this is now a Fuller's pub and it also seems to have been remodelled. A sideways U-shaped interior with wood floor, blue tiled bar front, copper bar top, low back banquettes, bare brick chimney breast etc. It is obviously quite an aged building but the refurb doesn’t do it full justice, too gastro. One point of interest was the lamps that were fashioned via old style divers helmet. Four pumps with Fullers three on: Pride, Seafarers (so-so) and HSB (fine). It's OK, worth a look-in.

[Reviewed as Old Market Inn incarnation – July 2006]
Foody place that nonetheless had a couple of ales on the go that were in good nick. Clientèle were a mixed crowd but tended towards the younger, artier side on my visit. Not bad. Rated 6

A Fullers corner pub nicely placed with cathedral views,quite open and airy inside but undoubtedly a pub of some age with some old wooden beams in evidence and a rather uneven wooden floor.It did seem a rather foody kind of set up despite five handpumps on the bar,dissapointingly only a solitary London Pride was on offer.
Its a reasonable looking pub but It doesn't seem that beer is the driving force here so I'm not likely to revisit anywhen soon.

Now the third Fullers pub in Winchester and this one struck me as a town centre pub with gastro pub inclinations. Certainly from the internal décor point of view they have gone for that clean but bland sterile gastro pub interior.
As a pub, for the Fullers offerings in Winchester, this comes in way behind the Wykeham Arms as far as I am concerned but is still probably better than the Bishop on the Bridge, I guess primarily due to its corner position in The Square, which gives good views of the Cathedral and is a stone’s throw from the High street. From a beer point of view it was no different to the others owned by Fullers in town with the usual brewery offerings of Seafarers, HSB and Pride available, but at least the HSB was a well-kept pint for my visit.
We didn’t eat here but the food menu is certainly a cut above the usual fried pub food , well on paper anyway.
