They have now moved to the Polygon (street) in Central Southampton and the new venue is superb, much larger and with the same range of beers which on our visit to see Magenta on 09/04/17 was in excellent condition. Of note is that the front bar is open to the public and although the rear bar is open for gigs the same range of real ales is available in there. A rare event these days is decent ale and music. I shall try and present this as a new entry.

Yes ok it has taken us a while to return but we were disappointed on Saturday's visit to find the place is closing and being converted to student accommodation. The live music venue is moving to The Maple Leaf The Polygon near Central station. Lets hope the choice of beers goes with them.

Yes as said below, main bar has a nice bohemian feel. Friendly staff and nice beer. Good prices.

We came to see Anathema play and were pleasantly surprised at the quantity of decent real ales available. Sadly one of us was driving but we shall return on a non music night

Another pub that is very difficult to get to/from. The front bar has a vaguely Bohemian feel with odd furniture, plants and ornaments. The rear room was preparing for a live music event, for a charge. Ales were varied - Triple fff Goldffinger & Alton's Pride, Longdog Kismet & Upham Punter. At first glance, the only cider appeared to be Addlestones. But Mr Whiteheads Novo Pyrus & Heart of Hampshire caught my eye in boxes on the rear bar, as I was staggering to the toilet. A very nice pub. I left most of my friends in here to try one more pub in the area and returned to encounter a rather mad, but friendly Bruce Forsyth lookalike outside the pub - rather surreal.
