    Hyde Tavern
    Fulflood Arms* (this ones a bit out of town but well worth the look for the more intrepid)

    Other considerations....

    Old Gaolhouse (Spoons for earlybirds and those that way inclined)
    King Alfred (pairs nicely with The Hyde Tavern)
    St James Tavern (nearest of listed pubs to The Fulflood)
    Overdraft ( Crafty option)
    Old Vine
    Eclipse Inn (for the pub and probably not interesting beer)
    Alfies
    Queen Inn (another involving a bit of a hike)

    Thats 13 pubs, maybe Quinno or others have other suggestions that we can add and whittle down to a solid crawl.
    Yeah that's pretty much how I'd line them up as well. Those 5 'must-do' pubs I agree with. The Albion is right by the station so ideal for a first and/or final pint.

    Westgate could be a wild card. I was unimpressed on my first post-refurb visit in 2017 (!) and haven't felt the need to go back since so no new info from me.

    The Queen has been very impressive on each of my visits. As mentioned it is a bit of a hike so one for the more mobile and energetic. WhatPub claims an 11am opening time. In contrast, the Hyde (which is a bit away from the main drag) doesn't open until 6 on weekdays, so I'd suggest that's the final scheduled stop.

    Are there no buses? Plus Bus bought (for less than the price of a pint) with train tickets, or bus passes for those of us lucky enough to have reached the state pension age can take a lot of the fatigue out of pub crawling.


    The number 1 bus service, from Winchester railway station to Southampton has a stop in Ranelagh Road just around the corner from the Queen, and runs every 20 minutes.

    I'm in, but looks like the 15th July would be the best bet for me due to work cover being required on the 29th. The missus goes in for an op this Monday, so June is a write-off until she's recovered as she'll likely want to spend the day in the city whilst I'm imbibing.

    Have been to Winchester a couple of times, but never had a drink in the centre, the closest being this venue for a gig (a Kiwi band called Die! Die! Die! if anyone wanted to know), which isn't classed as central.

    It's been on the hitlist for a number of years, so be good to get some of its pubs ticked off. If I twist her arm, I might get a visit to The Wonston if we make a day or two of it.

    Looks like with 9 votes each it's going to be the 15th or 29th. Would it be good to have a run-off between the two so as to include as many people as possible?

    The poll stays open until midday this coming Sunday,so hopefully more people will vote and thereby avoid a run-off.

    Or we could scrap the whole thing and vote for Saturdays , Opening times are so much better and much more pub crawl friendly.
    Only joking of course but its true.
