The Railway Inn is the longest established and only dedicated Live Music venue in Winchester, Hampshire.
Dating back to 1856 as a public house, The Railway Inn is a blend of traditional bar and a music venue/arts centre.
We provide some of the finest live entertainment in the south of England across two live venues.
‘The Back Room’ sounded like some function room at the back of a pub. That’s not what our back room is like so we called it The Barn, mostly because it used to be one, and ‘The Brothel’ (as apparently it also used to be) would have been problematic…
The Barn is carved into St Paul’s Hill and one side is completely underground. With its own bar and a top spec PA and lighting system, The Barn has a pretty impressive list of previous guests.
Just a stone’s throw from the train station, or a short walk from the town centre, you can find The Railway Inn, which as well as being Winchester’s only dedicated live music venue, is also a great place to come and enjoy a night out.
The bar serves everything you could ask for; local ales, a selection of wines from around the globe, and a variety of premium lagers and cocktail pitchers, as well as the usual pub staples. Almost all our spirits can be doubled up for £1, and other deals are available on our selection of shots.
Oh, and as well as all that, we also have a partially sheltered beer garden that’s almost as big as the rest of the pub, so you can sit out there of an evening, and soak up the lovely British weather.
The Attic is the newest offering from The Railway Inn and is the new name for what was the upstairs bar. Anyone who remembers the place from old will remember when a hole was cut in the ceiling and a balcony put in on the floor above. Now, the hole has been filled in, and The Attic has been born.
Kitted out with a hi-spec Nexo PA, The Attic has a cabaret feel about it and is a very comfortable place to see the quieter side of what we do with a mixed up selection of furniture, and old lamps.
Already, names such as Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick, Martin Simpson, Chris Wood, Miles Hunt, Martin Stephenson, Lau, Simone Felice, Robyn Hitchcock, Mark Morriss and many others have played on The Attic stage.
On nights when there are no shows, The Attic is available for extra seating.
