Alfies, Winchester

Decent traditional pub in Winchester at the King Alfred statue end of the high street. Original The Old Coach House - renamed after the town's most famous resident. Allows children, and does food, though few people were eating on our Saturday afternoon visit. Four local cask beers. A little lacking in genuine atmosphere and character (appears to have been refurbished just a tad too much), but a decent place to stop for a pint.

The Winston Hotel, Southampton

Slightly smelly and run down place. No food during the day. One cask pump, Ubu, was not available. Cards need a minimum £5 spend. Not impressive. I suggest the Blue Key Hotel round the corner.

The Blue Keys Hotel, Southampton

Slightly off the beaten track, so I had not previously noticed this place. It's a hotel with a bar serving one cask (on my visit), and is a restaurant in the evenings. The bar is clean, and has been recently refurbished, but has a Seventies feel. It somehow works inside an older building. There's an attractive beer garden area. It's an ok place, albeit feeling more like a hotel lobby than a pub. Food only in the evening. OK place if you're local and don't want to walk further for a proper pub, but not a place I would otherwise recommend as worth seeking out.
