We were looking for a place to go online and where our ageing labrador would be welcome too. And we found this pub by king Alfred' s statue. Friendly staff, great pub atmosphere. Would have been a 5 if the kitchen was not closed by 6pm. We will be back !!

No bacon on the plate, tiny piece of liver, vegetables looked like they have been cooked hours ago, dry, wrinkled and soft. The pub smelt like something had died there. Charged £24 for rubbish liver and... More

We went here becuase my wife needs gluten free and saw how well known the pub is for that. Sadly the chef had an accident and was off work but the pub very caringly organised some food for us which was just what we needed. When we visit Winchester again we'll definitely come back and look forward to the chef's... More
