Micropub to Open on Portswood Road

A former Southampton bookshop on Portswood Road is being transformed into a micropub.

The Peter Rhodes bookshop, located near Mango and La Boronia Restaurants (as well as Champagne Charlie’s) has submitted a plan to become a micro pub called ‘Bookhouse Alehouse’. It aims to be ‘community focused’ with a capacity of around 120 people.

It’s location between the Gordon Arms and The Hobbit will place it on the route of many Portswood bar crawls.

A design statement for the pub said

The plan for the Bookhouse Alehouse has so far received 23 supporting comments and two objections.

The final decision on planning will be made in December.
