We visited here as we were attending a gig in the back room. A real basic boozer which would have suited us fine but for the boring beer choice. We had just returned from a real ale tour of Derby where all the free houses offered the most fantastic choice of beers to suit all tastes. I'm afraid Ringwoods (which I used to love) and Hobgoblin are all of a similar style and personally just don't appeal to me anymore. Has Ringwoods been dumbed down since the takeover? Certainly tastes like it. Anyway can't say I'd recommend this pub for its beer but I commend them for having 2 rooms for bands and artists to perform. BTW the band we saw was Panic Room really excellent music. Go see

A bit rough and ready but the ale was good enough, Cocker Hoop and a couple of others, pool table and a room out the back where bands play sometimes. Gets a bit studenty sometimes but its OK as an ale outlet. Small outside area which is good for Summers days...

Lively town centre pub handy for a quick pint whilst waiting for a train. The atmosphere was friendly when I went in, no music on at the time but that's obviously the crowd they're aiming at. There were some strange people in, but everyone seemed happy. The pint of RIngwood I sampled wasn't best kept but was drinkable nonetheless.

Not my first choice of pub in Winchester, but I wouldn't mind going back.

Very much a music venue, the beers are well kept but not great, slightly above average price for the area. On the ale side regional brewers rather than the industrial giants who supply this pub the same old range of kegs plus San Mig. Basic decor, lots of posters for forthcoming bands etc, big pool table and a balcony bar available for hire.

I like this pub. Superbly situtated by the station. Music venue if thats your kind of things. Otherwise can watch the music videos that are going on. The Ringwood beer is not really to my taste. However there are other good beers or ciders which can be chosen. 10/10 for my money.
