Popped in here while in Winchester working went for a bite to eat. So after waiting nearly 10 mins at the bar and looking at menu we left very over priced and shocking staff service will walk past it in future 😡😡

Had lunch here a few Saturdays ago after a few hours shopping with a group of friends. One the party had pre booked a table but on arrival in an absolutely packed out pub, there appeared to be little chance of one being put by for us. However a very efficient waitress/bar staff fond us a couple of tables near... More
