Climbed of the train on Saturday evening tired and hungry and popped into the Lady Hamilton.
Now, this is a well established hotel pub at the Hard which just happens to serve well prepared delicious food. If you are shopping in Gunwharf this pub is an excellent alternative to the plusher establishments in the mall. It may not be flashy but the main ingredient - the food is outstanding.
I had roast lamb which was cooked to a tee, accompanied by several small boiled potatoes, cabbage,cauliflower and peas all fresh, nothing out of a tin and served with the most delicious gravy. If that is not enough for you there is a tempting dessert menu with a scrumptious crumble lying in wait for the unwary and there is also a wine list for those that the well stocked bar cannot satisfy. Well worth a visit to anyone with an appetite

Recomended by friends...
Decided to pop in when we were shopping. Arrived at 12.30 on a Sunday and asked to book a table for 1.30pm. Table was a short wait when we returned.

Food was amazing!! Just £6.95 each and HUGE portions. Fresh veg and we each had 7 potatoes on our plate!!

Staff were friendly and service super quick.

Pub could do with updating but place was packed out!!

One of the best pub/restaurants in the area which serve good wholesome home cooked food - including a roast dinner every day - at reasonable prices and quick service. For those without a large appetite the staff will provide a "Senior Citizen" or Child's portion for a reduced price - although the size of the meal that arrives doesn't look any smaller than the normal sized portion!
A well located pub close to the Royal Dockyard and steeped in naval history as can be seen by the traditional memorabilia on the pub walls. Haven't stayed in the rooms but listening to the number of bookings taken by the staff they are also very popular. Certainly a good place to visit if your in Portsmouth. Note that food is served until 2.30pm and recommences at 6pm. Enjoy - we do every time we visit!

What a story. Spoke at length with the owner who explained the history of the pub and Lady Hamilton. Bought the book and read it. Eat there alot, roast dinners £6.95! Always busy with locals and visitors like us.
