Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Vine

Attractive upmarket pub, restaurant and hotel right by the cathedral green. Comfortably furnished and traditionally decorated bar and smaller rear dining room. Four real ales on handpump: the regular Landlord plus Ringwood Razorback, Salopian Oracle and something local from Itchen Valley behind a stand-in paper 'clip'(£4.00, but in excellent shape).

As noted below this is very much a food orientated pub.
The four beers available were Why Not Wally's Revenge, Alfred's Saxon Bronze, Long Man Long Blonde and Landlord. I went for the Long Blonde (£3.90) which although only a cooking beer was very tasty and refreshing but like the previous two pubs visited expensive.
Despite the emphasis on food here I preferred it to some of the other Winchester pubs visited.

Malden man left this review about The Old Vine

A warm, comfortable and welcoming pub in the shadow of Winchester Cathedral, very busy on Saturday evening, I found a perch at the bar on a stool. Two main areas, the pub bit is slightly L-shaped and traditional but with a small more modern and unusual side room towards the rear, a much larger side room to the front of the pub is separated by a heavy curtain and seems to be the dining room. On looking in I got the "are you alright there?" crap from someone so I patted myself down and said "Yes, I think so". That shut her up.
The bar area has squares of material on the walls, an exposed brick fireplace, regular small tables, lots of people eating. On the bar, under glass, there were home made sausage rolls but at £3.95 a pop, hmmm.
Good beer, four on, Andwell Resolute, Alfred's Brewery Saxon Bronze, Butcombe Bitter, Taylor's Landlord. The TTL was sparlklered, the others not, to me, that shows an attention to detail. A good pub amongst good pubs in Winchester, very near the also excellent Eclipse. Accommodation available.
