Great beer selection and value food

The pub is up a flight of stairs, so you can't get a look at it from outside. But it was roomy, done up like a British pub, with a friendly wait staff. It has an extensive beer list including some microbrews which we couldn't try because we were about to get on the road. But the other people... read more

As other reviewers have said, this is a place for locals and I agree. However, my local pub wouldn't treat any of their customers as poorly as this place does. We love finding pubs when we travel and were excited to try this place. But, we almost turned around when we walked up the shabby stairs and we probably should... More

Being a hopeless Anglophile, I was delighted to learn that, while staying at a motel in Portsmouth NH I could get some fish-and-chips and mushy peas in a "real" British pub! Checked their website for hours, etc. Made a special trip, paid for parking, etc. only to find they were NOT open for lunch as stated. OK, so I came... More

My husband and I decided to try something new in this visit to Portsmouth. I saw that this place had many good reviews and the menu looked delicious so we came here tonight for dinner. I had the chicken pot pie and my husband had the boiled dinner, which was the special tonight. We really enjoyed the food but couldnt... More

Stopped in for dinner around 6:30 on a Tuesday night. Sat up at the bar and had the scotch egg and wings appetizers as my meal. Both very good. Had two beers one Stoneface IPA and then an Irish Red Ale. Everything is good.

Every bite was delicious-- nachos, goat and leek dip, fish and chips, steak and kidney pie, haddock and leek pie -- 10/10. Not to mention the beer selection! "If you're a Brit you'll feel at home" - British Dad.

The food here is amazing! The beer batter fish & beer batter chips are so good, I could go all the time. So I treat it as a treat. Everything from the menu to the beers. Get the best here!

Place was very busy and crowded. They were having trivia night and many tables were participating. The place is very much like the British pubs we were used to when we lived in England. We ordered the Butcher Sharing Board for 2 and ordered cheese to go along with the other items. Large selection of beers to enjoy. This is... More

The Coat seems to be going from strength to strength with their food. I'm always spoilt for choice between their savory pies, fish 'n chips and chicken curry. Tonight their special was a a sirloin steak stroganoff with portobello mushrooms and egg noodles. Sub the noodles for the best chips (aka fries) in the US and a lean steak done... More
