Excellent location for a drink if you are in the docks area of southampton. A good selection of ales and a fantastic outdoor seating area to enjoy the sun on a summer day. Good view across the water. Historical building which adds to the character.

Description
Dancing Man Brewery is a 1000l Brewpub and restaurant, making and selling fantastic beer. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Southampton’s Woolhouse. This building has a rich history which we have embraced and preserved, with guests from all over the world coming to see the graffiti etched into the beams by prisoners of war kept here during the 18th century and the Victorian crane as you enter the beautiful doorway. You can watch us busily brewing and ask any questions! Dancing Man Brewery offers an extensive menu including a plethora of vegan and vegetarian dishes. There’s a mixture of old favourites, decadent, indulgent dishes or light tasty bites. Perfect for families, couples or larger parties we welcome (and encourage!) you to bring your 4 legged friends as there is also a menu just for dogs. We're in this year’s Good Food Guide and we are known for our award winning pies! If there’s something to celebrate Dancing Man Brewery also offer bespoke weddings and events!
