My brother and I called in at this pub after walking to Winchester from Alresford on a Friday in August 2009. We were very struck by the relaxed nature of the place, and the fact that there was NO MUSIC OF ANY SORT (Hallelujah!). Also of interest was that there were at least 3 dogs quietly snoozing on the floor (very rare site in any pubs I have visited in the last few years) and that the mix of people was refreshingly varied as regards age and (apparent) backgrounds. Thoroughly recommend: we noted it down immediately as ‘must come back again’ and ‘must tell friends’.
