Popular Bedford Place Pub Closes


Popular Bedford Place pub Varsity has closed while Savills, the company behind the pub, try to find a new leaseholder to run it.

Head of Savill’s licence leisure department Kevin Marsh said:

“We are marketing the property to the pub and bar industry in the expectation that we will quickly find a new operator for the business. The previous tenant failed due to wider corporate circumstances unrelated to this site”.

Varsity was a popular among students in Southampton and often had people watching football matches.

However, there is a strong chance that the site will be bought as a new pub.
