We stumbled across this while in Southampton. The Pub is quirky & has history. It has a good selection of real ales & the staff are friendly. This is somewhere I would return to in a heartbeat...

Southampton's one and only award winning micro brewery and Brew House. We are the meeting place for international beer lovers whether on a cruise, a student or a pirate -come on in, lets talk beer, not only cask but keg, and bottles, and coming soon stubby cans. We also serve food - lovely, wholesome comfort food!
