Still has a decent, if expensive, range of beers. Certainly worth a visit but now the poorest of the three pubs near the station. I just feel far more welcome in the other two (Junction & Dolphin). I used to regard this as the best pub in Southampton but it seems to have lost it's way or maybe the competition has just improved.

Outside it looks like a traditional railway station pub, inside it’s a bit like a Hobgoblin pub - lots of wood, painted walls, leather sofas, and a modern student feel. There’s an upstairs room with pool and football tables. Lots of focus on the beers with around 10 on offer, including a house ale, Nellie’s Nob, which is a rebadge of Bowman’s Yumi. Holds beer festivals. Friendly customers, which on our Friday afternoon visit were mostly young males. This has a lot more life, character, and interest than the Guide Dog. As it’s almost next door to the Junction Inn, the two can be visited together. I am more inclined to the Junction Inn as it does food, is more family orientated, and has more of a traditional pub look and feel, but there will be those who prefer this place. Considered together these two make one of the best beer destinations in Southampton, second only to the Platform Tavern (which has its own brewpub).

Still very expensive - like for like 80p per pint dearer than the Guide Dog and 70p dearer than Talking Heads.

Paid long overdue return visit and enjoyed the atmosphere and a terrific Arundel beer. Football crowd meant custom was very mixed and felt less like the beer ticker experience I remember from a decade ago. Having said that, loved the brewerania, less impressed with the flaky sausage roll !
