Visited early evening on Monday. The staff who were working were all helpful and very pleasant but clearly not enough of them. Service at the bar was therefore incredibly slow. No fizzy drinks available on tap either. My friends meal was fine but mine was...More

Ok. Like everyone else, I don't have high expectations when it comes to eating at Wetherspoons. Nor do I expect to be greeted like royalty when I walk through the door by the (generally) socially inadequate overgrown students that seem to staff the bar. But...More

I know it's a wetherspoons any ' you get what you pay for' but it's definitely not acceptable to bring out a vegetarian breakfast with bacon on the plate, no beans or mushroom. The rest of the problems we encountered were typical, barely hot food,...More

Staff were rude and clearly had preferred locals that they served ahead of other people. When I pointed this out I was refused service. Very immature and shocking treatment from someone who is considered to be a manager. Would not recommend.

Good Morning, unfortunately there is no direct off road parking but we are a 5 minute walk from the Swan Centre NCP or a similar distance is Sainsburys car park which is a pay & display.

Opened: 3rd April 2009 as a JD Wtherspoons pub The name of this pub reflects Eastleigh's connection with England's railways. Eastleigh became a railway town in 1891, when the London & South Western Railway opened its carriage and wagon works, next to the station. The town grew rapidly. Expansion accelerated, after repair shops were added in 1903 and the locomotive works opened in 1910. The Eastleigh Works constructed the King Arthur 4-6-0 classes and all 16 Lord Nelson locomotives. The first of the series is now in the National Railway Museum, in York. When Eastleigh Station was built, in the early 1840s, modern Eastleigh did not exist. It was then the small rural hamlet of Barton. In 1839, the combined population of Barton and nearby Eastley was fewer than 80 people. The new station at Barton was named Bishopstoke, after the nearest village, and eventually renamed 'Eastleigh', in 1923. For more than 160 years, the pub on this site (formerly The Home Tavern) has been the first building seen by anyone arriving in Eastleigh.
