Popped in here the other evening. Its a Greene King outlet (as other posters' have noted). Kind of a strange place, its a mix between a typical drinkers pub with a restaurant type area on the back. I tried a pint of St Austell's 'Propper Job'. Although on the cold side it was in great condition. Another great plus point is the manageress is a rather attractive blonde and I'm a sucker for blondes!! I'll be visiting again just to see her behind the bar!!!! LOL!!! On a serious note, if your in the area oe passing, it's worth a visit.

Firstly I think JOPI on this comments list must be the pubs owner - too much detail and self promotion??

In any case I support the other recent reviews, ale is well kept but boring (GK + derived pseudo brands), the style and interior is very nice indeed, very much a pub that does food than the other way round, despite the attempts to brand it a restaurant. Garden is very sweet - surrounded by water, child friendly - no complaints. Didnt eat but it looked good on paper - standard aspirational pub £10-£18 charges for mains.

Clean & tidy pub just a short walk from the city centre.
On the plus side the garden looks good for a summer drink, being bounded by the River Itchen on two sides...the food menu looked good to at a glance.
Sadly the beer choice was fairly uninspiring (GK) and the most expensive round of the day was purchased here for some average session bitter, albeit well kept.
Could have huge potential as a free house, though sadly it'll never happen of course!

The brand new team are keen and skilled. They have given the bar and restaurant a makeover and tidied up the fantastic riverside garden. The food is all prepared freshly by the owner/chefs from succulent pate and perfect squid, juicy steaks whole Sea Bass to Lemon Posit or Eaton mess. They have excellent suppliers of local Venison, Guinea fowl and Rare Breed Beef. I have already eaten most of the menu and it has all been superb. I think it's just what Winch needed.

Very friendly Staff let down sadly by the limited choice of Ales and high prices. The Pool table really doesnt fit. Perhaps they ought to replace it with a Bar Billiards table. And get some none GK beers
