Obviously much changed from the 2009 review below, still of course a cellar bar though there is also street level seating. Belgium and Blues is now very much a place for the beer specialist and although as the name suggests there is a great emphasis on Belgian style beer it also caters for cask real ale and keg craft stuff. The downstairs bar is divided into several areas including a couple of open booth type rooms complete with normal tables and chairs but also leather upholstered bench sofas along the back wall,there are wall mounted displays of bottled Belgian beers. On the pumps for my visit ale wise was Vibrant Forest Kick Start and Citra along with Tiny Reble Cwytch, Cider wise there were three on pump but I fail to remember what, the 12 keg taps had a mix of craft beers and Belgian stuff plus a couple of top range Lagers. Two large glass doored fridges behind the servery was home to numerous bottled beers, Belgian and craft. Music was playing at a sensible unobtrusive level. A good find this one.

A rare find, a basement bar. Makes an interesting alternative to pubs elsewhere in Southampton which, barring a few exceptions, exude a generic chain quality. This one had a couple of Greene King ales on cask but I plumped for a lager as I didn't have long before my bus turned up. It depends really what you're looking for here - if you like something a little rough round the edges and don't mind the indie crowd, you'll probably like it. In terms of ale, I'll probably give this place a miss next time and head for Wetherspoons where the keep the Ringwood in excellent nick.
