Pub

“30 minute walk from The Loft, 5 minutes by car, buses also stop opposite both the entrance to Ridgemount Avenue and opposite The Cowherds. Part of the Vintage Inn group. Nice pub, serves good food, added bonus of being on Southampton Common so a daylight walk to build up an appetite or work off an excellent meal.”

Bar
“Located right in the middle of Southampton’s lively Bedford Place, the London Road Brew House is a vibrant, buzzy pub with lots going on! There are two bars, Sky and BT Sport, and their very own microbrewery where you can watch an eclectic range of beers being brewed. Also, with an open kitchen, you can watch the chefs prepare and cook your pizza in the stone bake oven. They have an amazing weekly line-up of events including a hugely popular Monday night quiz and ‘Sessions’ live music every Friday after work. You and your friends can also liven up your evening with ping pong, table football or pool. We’ve ate and drank here many times and have always really enjoyed it! The beers and cocktails were great and the pizzas are delicious! A fun spot in town to visit.”
