The Southampton Arms
From the first glimpse of a sign, reading in stark letters: 'Ale, Cider, Pork', you know this is a straightforward kind of place. To the sounds of the fifties you can sample anything from blackberry cider to cream stout, and with 15 different hand pumps to choose from, you'd be hard pressed to be disappointed. No one to go with? Never fear – the staff are welcoming and the locals friendly and chatty, offering you bits of their pork pies at the drop of a hat. And the best bit? A pint will cost you less than £3. Honest.
