Husband & I went for a couple of drinks after a long walk. Nice at first as it was quiet and the clientele were friendly. 30 mins later (1800)filled with drunken middle aged men on their way back from the Pompey match. Could have handled this as we were sat out of the way, but they decided they needed to... More

Never disappointed with food or service. I actually tried the early bird menu on Friday at least 5 different choices for starters/mains and dessert and... More

Found this lovely restaurant by chance during a short break in Portsmouth, very quiet ( week after the New Year) but friendly and helpful staff. The fillet steaks were absolutely delicious!... highly recommended...... So good we went back the following night. Another bonus was that they were happy to allow us to bring in our dog.

Have spent a lovely Sunday lunchtime listening to live jazz with good wine and roast meal. Staff and atmosphere excellent. I would recommend this venue for a relaxed Sunday lunchtime meal with live music thrown in for free.

Only minimal changes to paintwork etc but enough to make a massive difference, upstairs the 20+ bottles in a type of framed area at the far end are illuminated from behind with the wines to make a very inviting and formal area.

I wanted to thank you for our Christmas Meal on Saturday, we had such a good time. The food was delicious, everyone was raving about the steak and the proper peppery peppercorn sauce and the belly pork with amazing crackling. The quantity of chips and veg was perfect too, everyone could eat what they wanted without anyone missing out. The... More
