The Bent Brief Pub

This pub is dedicated to the live music scene in Southampton. The music is played on an informal stage to involve as many patrons as possible. Come along any night to get involved with the live music. With more traditional opening hours than many of Southampton's pubs we offer the chance to enjoy great entertainment with a traditional atmosphere.
There are regular Jazz and Irish Music Nights throughout the month making this venue well worth a visit.
