“Friendly local pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Since moving into Bitterne Village I have visited the Humble Plum several times. It always has a great atmosphere. It has an old fashioned country pub feel to it which makes a nice change to the other brewery run pubs in the area. Very cosy in the winter with the open fire.
I has a Sunday lunch there last week and thought the food was very good if now a little pricey. Worth a visit.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

On business in local area and tried all the usual local pubs with menus of 'Southern fried chicken and burger variations'. Chanced on this place. What a find (don't let the exterior put you off!). Good range of real ales to wash down a really excellent gastro meal and all at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

“Excellent Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014 via mobile

Went there for a birthday meal. Great selection on specials board and normal menu. I had the rib eye steak special. Which was cooked to perfection and the home made chips where divine. The pub was very busy and there where only two staff working the bar and serving food however the service was excellent. It's just a real shame they can't close the dinning area off for customers wanting food. people came in wanting food and there where no tables left all taken up by customers just there for drinks. Would be great if they could extend the dinning area would be able to accommodate larger dinning parties too. Will definitely be recommending this place to friends.

“Very nice Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

Visiting area and booked Sunday lunch for 4. Greeting was friendly, the beer excellent and the food very good. Only complaint was length of time taken to get served and that the pub seemed under staffed. Would definitely visit again but not if in a hurry

“valentines meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

we had a fabulous meal last night. Well priced and presented very professionally. The staff made a real effort to keep the tables serviced the whole experience was great. We have searched long and hard to find a nice local pub, with a nice family friendly atmosphere and good quality beer and food in Southampton,we've found it.
