Where to drink Mild

An often asked question is where can you still get mild?

In the Southern Hampshire region there are still a number of pubs that have a mild on all the time, usually one of the old Winchester Brewery pubs that were taken over by Marstons in 1923 and subsequently sold to Greene King in 1999 — Greene King XX mild is still available in a few outlets

In addition, the success of CAMRA's 'May is Mild Month' campaign means a fair number of pubs have Mild as a seasonal brew.

The table below endeavours to give an up-to-date list but, perhaps inevitably, won't succeed. While ideally this page should be a 'wiki', the author hasn't had time to do that yet, but please send any extra knowledge you have to mild@shantscamra.org.uk or better still, post comments in our Forum under Pubs - Mild, Where to get it
