This pub is located on The Square, close to the cathedral. It has a very modern interior and is very clean looking. Came in here for a cool pint on a hot day. They serve food here, but we had already eaten some place else.

We learned about William Walker on our tour of Winchester Cathedral. This pub right around the corner from the Cathedral was popular with locals, but we grabbed a table for a light refreshment. Historic décor; friendly service.

A fun pub with a different sort of menu. We loved the tapas selection and 3 for £18 was enough for 2. Also the beer was excellent!
