I just love this place with its nautical charm overlooking Portsmouth Harbour and Portsdown Hill. Staff very friendly, the beverages just right.

The Jolly Roger is situated in an ideal position for dining out with family and friends. The outlook is second to none which is matched only by the service and extensive choice of food. There is a lunchtime menu, an A La Carte menu and a "specials" board. We opted for a lunchtime meal which gives you a choice of... More

Was asked to tone it down ( fair enough ) Conversation carried on and we were laughing etc (not swearing) a little loud maybe. Went to order a pint... More

This could be a nice pub but our visit was spoilt by the mean spirited attitude of the manager and some patrons towards a couple with a baby. To ask a family to leave just because their baby is crying is unfair and an over-reaction to the situation. The catty comments towards them by some customers were un-called for. I... More

Came here for a family meal, the pub is located in a lovely setting. However , this is completely let down by the rude owner who stands at the end of the bar looking at everyone, while the locals make judgements on everyone in the pub who are not normally a regular. I will not be coming back here again... More
