"A very good music venue lies behind a amazingly interesting front bar, with antique though tired furniture. The quality and choice of beer in this pub is second to none in the area and the bar staff are brilliant." - [tripadvisor.co.uk]

The Talking Heads- Southampton's finest and most eclectic live music venue.


A fantastic Pub/Live music/Entertainment venue with a 260 capacity and a stage area that would not be out of place in some of the more well known London venues.

This pub is in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2015, has a heart and soul, great atmosphere and is full of life.
