Good beers

Always twelve beers on tap, you can try them all in tasting glasses and it's well worth it. Good food too, enjoyed the fish and chips

It's a brewery so we weren't looking for fine dining when we visited for lunch. But the waitress was not happy to be there. She lacked personality and came to bring us food, and give us our check. That was it. The food was just ok, the beer was pretty good. I would not recommend!

Beer and pub food. What could be better? We had a rainy day and hit the brewery for apps and beer. The waitress was knowledgeable and a real pro. We sat in the front window and enjoyed the typical olde town view.

It is sometimes hard to figure out where the Portsmouth Gaslight and the Portsmouth brewer begin and end. If you go here, go for the beer, not for the food. Standard bar food, but expensive. The place is loud and always has a wait.

Beer flight was great (six mini glasses). Salmon sandwich was out of this world. Pastrami on rye was great too. Great atmosphere and place to people watch. Staff were super friendly.

Stopped in recently with my girlfriend for a cold beer and some burgers. Was not disappointed in either. My girlfriend was not sure which beer she wanted to order. The waitress offered her two samples of beer so my girlfriend could decide which she liked best ( Dirty Blonde won the taste test). Great offer and service from our waitress... More

Get the beer sampler. 6 beers of your choice. I ate mussels and deviled eggs. Damn good. Nothing fancy - just really good.

We shared a Ploughman platter - some sausage, cheeses with bread, pickles & relish. But then we had wonderful, plump & flavorable mussels. Great preparation!! Add some french fries to your order & dip away.
