After three years training in Professional Catering and two years as Head Chef at The Bugle Inn Twyford, I arrived at The Phoenix Inn in 1981 with my parents Reg & Ann who were also Publicans formally trading in Southampton.

The Phoenix Inn was at this time a Marstons owned Tenancy and one of the few that would be suitable to take on the increasing food market at this time.

After a great deal of success it was unfortunate that Mum became ill in 1984 and Dad had to retire and it was at this time I took the reins.

I have been here ever since, except for a short time 1991 - 1993 when in there wisdom Marstons reverted the pub to a managed house and I took the tenancy of The Dolphin Inn Twyford, 100 yards down the road, only to return as at tenant as trade bombed here and grew at The Dolphin.

I have known Emma since she worked at The Phoenix at fourteen, and she also went to Catering College only to return to take up the reins of Head Chef and now Landlady,

So Hopefully with that a potted history you will see that we run The Phoenix as a family and take great delight in welcoming you to our 17th Centaury Coaching Inn

We like to say that we run a Traditional Pub that does food and not a Restaurant entertaining drinkers and dinners at all times.

 In the winter months we have a large log fire burning in the Lounge Bar and have recently renovated the log fire in the Skittle Alley / Function Room

We have a Lounge Bar, large 35 bay car park,

Two Patio areas, Beer Garden, Skittle Alley

We welcome Business, Family and Club enquiries

for use of these areas.

As you will see, from perusing this web site we offer a range of Pub experiences and would welcome any contact if you have any unanswered questions
