Once known as the War Office, this traditional back street-style pub has gone through several incarnations and has had a chequered history of management over the last year, hopefully overcome. Just off the shopping area, it attracts a local clientele including some characters who are sure to involve you in lighthearted banter. A friendly atmosphere pervades the pub, which makes a great escape from the anonymous circuit pubs of the town centre. Nearby is the Andover Museum of the Iron Age, well worth a visit.
