|The Bishop on the Bridge is a large building well situated on the bridge over the River Itchen with a great outdoor terrace space next to the river. |
It was decent enough but somehow I too was left a little flat by the experience. The beers are OK and four Fullers beers were available in the shape of Pride, ESB, HSB and seasonal Spring Sprinter.
But I left thinking that this place with its room and good outside space should be utilised much better, and when compared to some of Fullers prime London locations, this one feels like not a lot of thought has been put into it.
A more extensive range of Fullers Ales including a couple of guests would help for a start.

|The whole place was closed for a private function this afternoon...|
A beautiful summer Saturday afternoon when the place would normally be heaving with happy punters.
Obviously Fullers must be properly minted to be able to afford to do this, not really in the spirit of the "public house" though, is it?
ESB aside, Fullers are increasingly poor anyway...I'll give this place a miss in future and spend my beer tokens in the ever decent Black Boy just up the road.

|A very attractive pub. Excellent friendly staff. Music too loud and inappropriate for conversation - we shouted for half an hour, left half the food on our plates and went to find a quieter pub for the rest of the evening.|
A great shame as the food and beer were fine.
Many "outlets" don't comprehend that their background music is irritating as no one listens to it and it doesn't mask conversation because everyone shouts.
Luckily there are still pubs where a quiet hubbub of conversation and perhaps a very quiet soft music creating a gentle atmosphere are all the noise one can hear.
Even a raucous pub where the conversation is loud and laughter permeates the ambience has an attraction way beyond loud music of any sort.

|Visited here on Tuesday as Part of a Pub Crawl of Winchester. Larger Modernised interior with large eating area that seems to cater for failies. Several Real Alse available including Sprinter, Fullers ESB, London Pride and Fullers Discovery. I plumped for London Pride which was very good. Maybe worth a return visit|

|Good location witha riverside terrace, where we ate.|
Food was well cooked and served quickly. Unlike the bar service, when on a busy lunchtime there was nobody behind the bar and a queue waiting.
Fullers beers, of which I had a pint of Discovery.
