please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Vibrant welcoming local pub. Very cheap and have a good variety of stuff going on including live music, pub quiz, chase the joker, and karaoke.

Have read the last post that The Players Arms in Totton would be another victim of the recession in 2009 and it's such a shame they weren't as it's an affront to all that is good that so many decent pubs are closing down and this one persists in staying open! Presumably it has some connection to their terrible business practices.

My experience of this venue was this:

Having heard that they'd hired a band from Surrey which I'd seen before and very much liked, I went along to the Players arms as, hailing from the Totten area I hadn't seen this group since the last time I was in London.

Whilst I was at the bar, The band arrived and announced their arrival at the bar. They were told not to bother as it wasn't busy enough! The lady at the bar tried to blame them for not being there earlier so people could 'See them set up' though that was such unconvincing claptrap I was surprised they didn't firebomb the place there and then!
There were posters up in the pub stating a 9:00 start and I spoke to the band after and they would easily have been ready in time. They also told me that they weren't offered any compensation and I'd watched the bar lady talk to them and she held the whole conversation with her back to them, both strange and rude. The band said they'd have to think twice before coming to Southampton again and I don't blame them!

So there I was. Stuck In a dive of a pub more disreputable than the canteena in Star Wars with a wasted night and having to fork out for a taxi home..

That poor band had it that much worse though: A 4 hour round trip for nothing and out of pocket by �50 odd quid! They told me they'd turned away other bookings to honour this one and the sick thing was that it was it was the Players Arms that had approached them to perform there!

A great disappointment.

The Players will sadly be closing its doors soon, yet another victim of the recession......

This pub was given a bad reputation to me when i first moved to this area, how wrong they were. On the few occaisions i have been to this pub i have found the staff friendly and kind and a good evening is had by all, especially Karaoke nights. Not a bad pub at all.
