Southampton Arms

Southampton Arms

From the self-consciously spit-and-sawdust interior, you might imagine this place has been here since Jesus was battling acne. You’d be wrong, but no matter: this is a seriously good boozer. The Southampton Arms sells only beers and ciders from small, independent British producers – which means lots of Dark Star, Crouch Vale, Summer Wine, Gadd’s, to name but four regulars. No trip is complete without some sort of pork-based foodstuff.
