British Pub in Portsmouth

It's a British Pub - with drafts, cask pours and single malts. Try the scotched egg! Pub fare otherwise, with a nod toward a typical English cuisine - bangers and mash, meat pies and so on.

The beer selections were great and the food very authentic. If you are in the mood for a true British pub experience this is the place to go. The most annoying things I found (because I have to put the bad and the good) were the slightly switched off server (not rude just kinda Blah) and the stairs you have... More

While vacationing in Portsmouth we always find time to stop in. We are never disappointed as the service and food are always excellent. Can't say what our best meals have been but besure and order the hot nuts!

An upstairs English Pub with great atmosphere. Lots of English and Irish brews on tap and food that is consistently good. We have eaten here many times and often stop in when we are in Portsmouth around lunch time.

This pub served a nice dinner. The atmosphere is pretty much what you'd expect from the name Pub. Food was a bit above average and pretty normal pricing.

First time to Portsmouth and loved the town. We were shopping and walking around taking in the architecture and stopped for a drink in this inviting pub. Excellent selection of beers. The food caught our attention. Checked out the menu and what a variety of food and reasonably priced. So we stayed for lunch. The Scotch egg was good, fish... More

I love this place. Wish I had more time to enjoy. However... This trip, I had Scotch Eggs, French Onion Soup, and Fish & chips. Each built on the next. Superior food! Also, the drink was a cask ale that was quite good. Not spectacular. I have had a lot of beer all over thw world. That particular one did... More

The food and drinks were great. I ordered the salmon with Basmati rice as well as the pub fries.The salmon was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. The fries were perfectly crunchy and there was very little grease residue. I also ordered the Churchill which was a little heavy on the whiskey but it was very good. The waitress... More

This was the perfect choice for celebrating graduation with a large party (more than 12 people). They have a wide selection of beers on tap and also imported stuff from the UK and continental Europe. The menu consists of what you would typically find in a pub: burgers, sandwiches, fish and chips. They also have some finger food and beer... More

I've been to Portsmouth quite a number of times over the past ten years or so and until this past trip I had never even known this place existed. In fact, once I stayed at the hotel diagonally across from it and still never noticed it. Only tripped on it this time as there was a parking space right in... More
