The Albion, Winchester

Something of a miracle turnaround by the current landlord - after many years of wavering between "Just about OK" and "God awful", this is now one of the best, most interesting pubs in Winchester.

A constantly-changing selection of real ales (from small brewers), some off-beat lagers and key-keg beers, and a huge range of whiskies. A wine-snob friend also rates their selections, and they do great antipasti platters that I've enjoyed a couple of times.

The location makes it very convenient for the station, but unfortunately means it's quite small, and the outdoor space is not great (on a main road at a crossroad) - this is the only reason I've not given it 10/10.

The Willow Tree, Winchester

Reopened under new management after a refurb - very pleasant interior, friendly staff and it sounds like they've got big plans for food and the garden, which sadly went to seed under the previous owners.

Hopefully they can turn it into the pub it ought to be, as the garden should be the best in Winchester.

Eagle Vaults, Witney

Ugh. Tried to go in here a couple of times to watch football whilst staying in town.

Popular with those for whom tucking your tracksuit bottoms into your (white) socks is haute couture.

Reasonably cheap, I suppose.
