"The original Southampton micropub & still the best"
(Google review)

We're about craft & community

We pride ourselves on having an ever-changing selection of the freshest & highest rated craft beer from around the UK and beyond, that rivals the UK’s best craft beer bars. You’ll be given a warm welcome by our friendly and knowledgeable staff and soon be chatting and making friends with new people on the communal tables. As we like to say, “What good is the best beer in the world without someone to share it with!"

Our regular beer-themed events bring together local residents with beer fans from around the city and beyond to share some of the best and rarest beer together. We have our very own Butcher’s Brew Club that meets once a month to share knowledge and advice on home brewing. They have also been involved in several collaboration brews with some fantastic local breweries including Vibrant Forest, Dancing Man, Steam Town & Unity.

With up to 4 cask beers and six keg lines of craft beer and real ales, we also have a fully stocked fridge with a killer list of cans and bottles from the world's best craft breweries. We serve a range of cider, wine & soft drinks as well as seasonally changing gin & tonics.

You’ll find us in a beautifully converted Victorian butcher's shop, in the suburb of Bitterne Park near to St Denys & Bitterne Stations.

The original Southampton micro pub and still the best. Out of the way but worth the visit.

The smallest pub with the biggest welcome. A range of fab craft ales on a long menu. Sample your way through and walk home carefully!

Child Friendly!

Well behaved children are welcomed in the pub too! Do be aware the pub is an adult environment and quite a small space so please be considerate to other customers.
