Conveniently placed pub/eatery/accommodation right opposite the Cathedral. There are plenty of pubs in this area, and this one is more expensive than most and sometimes quite full, but the beers are good and the food menu (though untried) looks good too.

Very much a gastropub. Squeaky clean and punters were sitting at tables talking in hushed voices. Seemed more of a tourists pub with a fair number going there for pre theatre drinks. As already mentioned, it's seems more of a restaurant with a bar than a pub that does food. However the beer was well kept and the Saxon bronze was good.

Quick stop in Winchester for a pub tick, after finding the Hyde Tavern annoyingly closed at 12.15 we walked through town to this City centre pub and hotel.

Very nicely decorated in a contemporary style in an old building that still has its original oak beams on the ceiling. To the front on Great Minster Street the bar is retained mainly as a bar but food is served here and in the large dining room to the left with a large open fireplace. On this visit the whole pub was more popular with diners than drinkers, probably being a Saturday lunchtime didn't help.

4 hand pumps, each with a different ale. I opted for a pint of Plain Ales Innocence @ 4.0%, a nice well kept beer but it was London prices here.

To the rear is a conservatory that is more of a dining area for families. Lots of bar staff to deal with food orders, punters wanting beer & those that were checking into the hotel.

A nice pub, good pint but definitely more for food than ale.

I like this place, but tonight the prices were near criminal.
(Having said that the service was swift & ultra polite as always)
Tim Taylors Landlord: £4.40 per pint
Hoegaarden: £5.50 per pint
Presumably the above will return to realistic levels once the festive season has subsided?

best pint of the night - an excellent Otter.

I wanted to eat here again, but came in at 5:30pm. They change to the evening menu at 6:30pm, but I had a train to catch.

Shame - as I had a great meal here last time.

I think I may have even been at the same table.
