|It certainly is a great pub, atmospheric, relaxed with the full Fullers range and some guests. Always well kept. Prices are high however, even for Winchester. Paid £10.70 for a pint of Goodens Gold, a G & T and a bag of crisps.|

|A tremendous gem of a pub. Atmospheric, great beer and food. Fuller's range plus a couple of guests. Eclectic furnishings and the whole affair appears very well run indeed. Highly recommended.|

|Love this place, having been here in 2009. First time back and exactly as i remember it. To be cherished.... Places like this wont be around forever.|

|While it's certainly endearingly quaint to sit at school desks while quaffing a superb but expensive pint, such seating arrangements may not to be everyone's taste, not least because the seats are immovable. Most of the place is given over to food, so for drinking it's a desk in the bar area if one's free, or stand. There's a handful of benches outside at the back, with pleasant views of the residents' car park, doubtless quite pleasant nevertheless if the weather's suitable. Don't expect to see much change from a tenner if you ask for a pint and a large glass of wine. |
On our visit (5pm Sunday), the staff were more attractive than useful, and it took an age to get served. The food is excellent but pretentious (served, for instance, not on plates but on wooden chopping board affairs), and rather overpriced: they seem to be aiming at the proper restaurant market (you can easily spend £15 or more on a main course), but you can't get away from it being a glorified pub.
To fit in with the rest of the clientele, you may wish to avail yourself of an old school tie and sports jacket. Dogs are welcome. Overall, good for a special occasion meal, and worth a visit for a pint, but I wouldn't make it a regular casual venue. Wetherspoons it ain't -- in both good and bad ways.

|A very decent pub, smart attentive bar staff and beer that is consistantly on good form, the HSB in particular though non-Fullers guest beers are often on tap too.|
Tucked out of the way behind the cathedral and obviously geared for tourists and food, but the casual drinker is always welcomed with unfailing politeness in my experience.
If you want a Fullers pub this is a far better option than the nearby Bishop on the Bridge which has seen a marked decline in general standards in the last year or so.
