Came for a late lunch. Had not eaten breakfast, so I was hungry. I ordered the fish and chips and the biscuits and gravy appetizer with Sweet Tea to drink. It was delicious. They brought a small glass of tea first. I downed it in no time, so he brought a big mug out next. That small detail made a... More

We enjoyed our meal at Gosport Tavern. The atmosphere is friendly bar and service was attentive. There's a good selection of draft and bottled beers. An appetizer of fried oysters was outstanding. We enjoyed our entrees, The Drunken Sailor, a variant of a Reuben sandwich, and crab cakes. Portions were generous and the food was well done. Prices were quite... More

Nice to see another restaurant stay afloat in Portsmouth. Nothing special about this place ,also there is nothing wrong with this place. Classic neighborhood tavern/pub with pub grub quality food. the prices are fair, beer selection is good and the wait staff is efficient. You will not go wrong eating and drinking at Gosport tavern.

Wife and I visited to watch football on night. Ample tvs to watch anywhere in the restaurant. We ordered burgers for dinner and they were both killer as well as the fries. Beer was also delicious and have a decent selection.

Indoor and outdoor seating. I usually sit at the bar. I've tried a fw things on the menu. Soups, salad, wings, burgers and some other things. It was good but I did make one observation. The later you get there, the bigger the chance of getting food that's not as good as it would be earlier in the day. That's... More

We stopped by for a beer and appetizer after a football game. The beer selection is extensive. I had the pimento cheese dip with homemade tortilla chips, and it was tasty. My wife had the spinach salad with pecans, and the dressing was very good. There is a big screen TV for sports fans, and a friendly ambiance. It was... More

Only had the wings app with Thai chili sauce with a beer. It was very good. I thought the service was good and the beer choices were better than average. I would definitely return

Stopped in while walking along High Street on a Sunday afternoon. This place is like stepping into an old saloon with the tin ceiling and large bar. The brunch menu had a good selection and the drinks and draft beer selection was extensive. We enjoyed sitting by the window and relaxing over brunch and the homemade potato chips are a... More

Waited forty-five minutes for a table, got a table, waited half an hour for the waitress to show up, never did so we left. Terrible service, cannot believe people go there. I guess you have to wanna spend a week there.

We have eaten there quite a few times. Mostly we sit at the bar and eat as it is usually crowded at the tables. The food has gotten to be outstanding as I think they hired some new kitchen staff. Always a good presentation, and the portions are more than adequate. The bartenders are very knowledgeable, and at the ready... More
