Agree with the previous review about the use of plastic glasses. We visited at lunchtime and plastic was being used. I note there is live music here every night of the week. So maybe it's easier to only dispense drinks in plastic. I will also mark the pub down for this. But it was probably my favourite pub of the day. There is a ground floor bar, a cellar bar and a garden at the rear with some really intriguing features. 5 ales were on. 2 were on gravity - Sunny Republic Red Bus & Twisted Bitter Pirate and the other 3 were on handpull - Palmers Spring Hop, Cerne Abbas Ale & Flack Manor Romsey Gold. Ciders were Dorset Sunshine and Maverick from Orchard Pig. Think I may be back here when I visit for the football next year. 7/10. Would be an 8 had it not been for the plastic.

Eclectic (whatever that means) cellar bar, no phone reception (good), a couple of decent ales on (good) all let down by being served in plastic (at 4 in the afternoon with only three people in the bar - why?) - gets a serious markdown from me for that.

chaplin's- far too expensive. customers should not have to pay for your choice in kitschy decor.
cellar bar- better! very knowledgeable barman! wish we could have seen a band, there. left the next day :/

and the goldfish by the stairs, on the way down to the cellar bar, need to go. what a miserable existence! especially with bellends throwing cigarette ends into their water...

Quirky, bohemian, inviting, artistic, independent, great character place. Friendly staff, good service. Won some local awards recently Best Bar None: Overall winner & Best community venue. Love the garden too.

Great drinks choices: good cocktails & coffees upstairs, local real ales downstairs (although a bit stale from sitting in the barrels). Excellent place to pile into after a gig at the O2 down the road. Really chilled friendly & laid back. Variety of live music, all free I think: Reggae, dub, acoustic, folk, blues, rock, open mike. All day festivals held sometimes in the garden and street for local charities with bands and activities, face painting for the kids good fun, but no children in the evenings. Smoking area amongst the plants, balconies and fish in the garden. Nice place, nice people, good atmosphere.
