|Not a bad little boozer, recently cleaned up and back on the list of pubs for a Winchester crawl...the Ringwood Porter was on fine form during the Christmas break.|
Small and cosyish inside, in better weather the outside seating is a pleasant place to sit and watch the hustle from the cathedral and city centre passing by.
It always was worth visiting but had become properly grubby a couple of years ago with a lot of neglect going on, and was the favoured haunt for the "off duty" Buttercross beggars for a while, though they thankfully seem to have vanished from the area in recent times?
An interesting comparison with The Vine just across the road, both are now worth a look though.

|try the food!!!!!!!!!|
our first visit i had the short rib of beef,very tasty and so much on my plate that our dogs benefited,and yes they allow dogs in which is great.i challenge you to eat it all yourself!
now yesterday we went for sunday lunch,
roast sirloin of beef,roast spuds,homemade yorky pud,gorgeous gravy and,count these.....
cauliflower,celeriac,leek,cabbage,carrot,swede,parsnip,sweet potatoe,and broccoli.yes....9 vegetables,10 if you count the roast spuds!
all served on a red hot plate,by lovely staff.
by far the best sunday lunch to be found in winchester,and believe me,ive tried them all.....just a shame i never tried the eclipse first!
well kept ciders,nice atmosphere,lovely wood burner.
i can only rate this pub at 11 out of 10.

|Good little proper pub, with real customers. Far preferable to the poncey Old Vine.|

|Prime location like the Old Vine but oh dear. Should be called the Star Wars bar with the looks of some of the customers. 3/10.|
