This is literally at the end of my road but I never used to go there - beer not that well kept and a rubbish atmosphere, as the place was dominated by TVs and blokes watching them silently. It has now changed hands and is massively improved. Beer much better, including Black Sheep on tap. They had some good gin... More

We received a warm and friendly welcome when we arrived. Staff are helpful and friendly. We managed to park outside and they give you a parking permit. Our room was clean, newly decorated and very comfortable. The bar area is very pleasant and the food served was very good. We ate here both nights of our stay. It is a... More

Excellent in every way. The whole evening was extremely well organised. The service was great - efficient, very friendly, cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. My husband said it was the best pub meal he had ever had. There were welcome drinks, a disco, midnight drinks - and sparklers - an nice touch. Thoroughly recommend. Only point for me... More

We stayed at The King Alfred last weekend. We had a very comfortable room and as it was very busy in Winchester we were unable to find a table for dinner on Friday evening. We should not have worried as TKA looked after us and we had a wonderful evening meal. We had breakfast on both mornings at The Corner... More

We visited on a Saturday night, to meet up with some friends, and arrived to a very friendly welcome by the helpful staff. It was pleasing to see some very understated decorations this close to Christmas, and some real music in the background rather than tacky Christmas songs! There were only 3 real ales on but the one brewed for... More

In July This year I wrote a somewhat scathing review of a Sunday lunch at this establishment that we never received! Having heard that Jane is now in charge we decided that a return visit should be attempted, which we did today and am delighted we did! Service was excellent from start to finish, as was the food (which we... More

This pub is now under new management. It has had a major refurb and is comfortable and cosy. It's a good place for morning coffee and/or to meet your friends. No more big screens! The staff are pleasant and helpful. But they are let down by the food. It's traditional pub food, badly cooked. For instance, there is far too... More

Visited on Saturday lunchtime as a family, big group of 11 ageing from 14 to 90. Haven't visited the King Alfred for a couple of years and after hearing it had changed hands and been refurbished, was looking forward to going. No obvious disabled access for my elderly Grandad but a lovely staff member was incredibly helpful, even assisting him... More
