30 minute walk from The Loft, 5 minutes by car, buses also stop opposite both the entrance to Ridgemount Avenue and opposite The Cowherds. Part of the Vintage Inn group. Nice pub, serves good food, added bonus of being on Southampton Common so a daylight walk to build up an appetite or work off an excellent meal.

Our favourite Italian Restaurant. Piccolo's is one of Southamptons' hidden and very special gems. Established 50 years ago, on what was the site of Southamptons Bus Station, tucked around the corner from the Marlands Shopping Centre on the Civic Centre side. This is an authentic Italian experience. Booking is essential, you may still have to queue to get in. The photos I'm looking at do not give the justice so rightly deserved.
Piccolo Mondo
