Wow - fantastic breakfast here today. Good quality ingredients, hot and certainly plentiful. A really lovely breakfast experience. I ordered coffee but got tea, nevertheless the tea was good and the food lovely. 5 stars because the food was super and made up for the coffee error!

We managed to have our late lunch just before last order. Shenanigans' food was recommended by our friend before and it was so true! My husband had Irish breakfast and I had Shenanigans Stack which was offered with thinner slice of bread for me (^_^). Very nice black pudding that cooked perfectly, lorn sausage was something new for me to... More

Best breakfast and Guinness on the south coast, providing the perfect hang over cure. Welcoming staff, who really care about good customer service. Fantastic for rugby, as Portsmouth's only 'rugby pub'. A must go venue when in southsea.

One of the best bars in Southsea with a real authentic feel to it. Really relaxed with good service. Would recommend a visit to anyone looking for a decent bar in Portsmouth.

Without doubt Southsea's finest hangover cure. It takes quite a skill to be a brilliant night spot, a great day venue (for sport etc) and be a well renowned food place too. One of my favourite places in Portsmouth.

I had a loaded 'boxty' which was tasty and well cooked. Staff were friendly and the place was buzzy but not noisy. Would go again. they don't accept children as they serve alcohol.

Typical irish pub to enjoy an irish breakfast with a pint of beer in the tables of the street if you have a sunny day

Six of us all enjoyed a great breakfast here. They are very flexible about swapping an item which for me is ideal and all 6 meals came out together, without fault. The lady serving us was friendly and attentive enough for the type of venue and the meals were all well priced. I would definitely return and recommend breakfast!
