Ale, cider, meat. The three words that sum up The Southampton Arms are the only three they care about. It’s the simplest of simple drinking houses with a dedication to real beers and ciders, exclusively from independent UK breweries. They’ve got a hunk of pork behind the bar, which they can slap into a bun for around £4 and remember – it’s cash (‘real money’) only. No bookings, no reserve seats, no ‘party areas’ – you turn up, you drink and you enjoy.
