Not your typical British boozer, we have far more to offer!
Our very own brewery and restaurant with two well stocked bars all under the roof of one of Southampton’s most historic sites. Set in the Dock Land area with beautiful views of the Solent. Come and see why we have been voted Best Pub in Southampton since 2016.
Just so you know…….
When DMB first opened we did have a sister pub, just down the road.
Brewing ceased at the pub in 2014 as we prepared to move into our new home, the Wool House.
In March 2016 there was a parting of the ways and both venues became independent of the other.
Dancing Man Brewery is not linked to any other business. We are totally independent. And owned by Mandy Lacey and Aidan Lavin. No one else.
We have issued this little statement as a recent Echo interview has caused some confusion.
We are not selling or failing – we are going from strength to strength and will continue to provide award-winning beers, mind-bending food and a warm welcome to all our guests.
Sorry folks – we all have so many presents to open we have decided to close at 6pm on Christmas eve and we will open again on the 27th.
We will then close again New Years Eve at 6pm and open again on the 3rd January 2020 which is also the day our brand new menu is launched. Book a table now as your January Blues treat.
We brew, we bake, we dance, and we eat cake – sorry it’s all we could think of to rhyme. Rubbish rhyming aside we cater for vegans, veggies, carnivores, chiddlers and dogs, we are confident you will just love what we have done to the place.
We are two beer loving, family types who met whilst involved in a boozer up the road decided to expand on our own and set on a new adventure.

We are sure you will get to meet our Mr. Watson. He is a white and ginger Jack and can be quite barky in the barking department. The barking is random and we ask that you just ignore him. He is a very friendly boy and once he has met and liked you, chances are you will receive a joyous welcome next time. Or not. Depends what mood he is in.
