Winchester's first micropub. Except it isn't really, it's a minimalist hipster-style bar. Three areas knocked through in a long and narrow interior with stripped wood flooring, olive green walls, exposed brick etc. Seating is classic hipster, stools and junkyard salvaging with many people having to make do with a shelf along the wall. Food is tacos for 7 quid. 14 keg, 2 ciders and 4 cask, with the cask via stillage. Cask choices were Wild Beer Bibble, Tiny Rebel Dirty Stop Out, Church End Goats Milk and Urban Island Citra. A half of the latter was unfortunately stillage-like - fairly flat and unremarkable - though an acquaintance who was in earlier in the day said that the Bibble was in good shape. Prices are clearly labelled on slates to the left of the bar and it was interesting to see that all cask was £4 a pint, regardless of strength. A bonus point was gained by the presence of a continental style water dispenser with free lemon and thyme infused H2o. Very busy at 5pm on Saturday so is clearly filling a niche locally. Noted that The Smiths album was actually playing off a turntable further up the room. These sorts of places often leave me a bit cold - it's fine for what it is and I’ll give it another go as it’s near the station (and the ever-reliable Albion).

Almost a carbon copy of its sister bar in Southampton,It describes itself as a "Craft Ale Bar and Taqueria" ( it does Taco based food). Sparse in decor,seating is mainly stools around the periphery with shelves for drinks and or food to rest, there is some bench seating inside as well as outside on the pavement. Its mainly about the beer though, on my visit four cask ales were on, drawn direct from the barrel, twelve in total were racked up, Urban Island Citra, Arbor Never A Frown, Tiny Rebel Dirty Stop Out and Church End Goats Milk were the choice on my afternoon visit, these were backed up by fourteen craft keg beers and four Ciders, prices were relatively decent for this type of outlet down south, £3.90 on all casks,£2.00 for halfs and the majority of the keg beers were £5.20. I would consider this a micropub were it not for the fact music was playing via two turntables and also the semi open kitchen to the rear. It is though a definite step up in the beer scene for Winchester.
