“Historic pub and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

A lovely old pub in old Portsmouth situated on the harbour over looking the sea, an ideal place to be to watch the ships coming in and out of Portsmouth. The food is traditional pub style and the fish and chips come wrapped in paper. It has a lovely atmosphere and is always busy especially when the weather is good.

“Best view in town, but need to staff up!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This restaurant really does have one of the best views of the Harbour from the first floor restaurant, literally it feels like you are sitting right on the sea and could be on a cruise. That makes up for the somewhat lacklustre service, and I remember why as locals we dont eat there very often. It is a real shame because the food was good, and I think it was just a case of then having too much to cope with and not enough staff. We opted for a main only as it was busy, the food was good overall - I had a roast, but the veggies were way past their best - I expect they had been sat around for a while being Easter Sunday - our table was at 5pm. The main problem was that having finished our lunch nobody came to clear our plates for about 20 minutes, and then when they did they asked if we wanted a sweet but still did not come back to clear the plates. At that point I went to the bar to pay and politely asked if they would remove the dirty plates that I had stacked up on an empty table next to ours. The main courses were fairly pricey, but you dont mind that for the view. If they get enough staff on and they are happy to see you, i.e bright and pleased you are there as a paying customer - they will get it right.
This is the only pub too in Old Portsmouth that is not dog friendly either.
