We Stayed in Portsmouth recently and found the restaurant by chance. The quality of the service and the food was very good. Well worth trying.

“Good food: good value”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Close to Holiday Inn so tried it our first night. Wife enjoyed her burger so much (lots of blue cheese!) that we returned second night. Good quality food & reasonable prices.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We went for Sunday lunch with a group of friends(14 in total) to celebrate a birthday.Most of the meals were very disappointing,chewy beef,stale potatoes and lukewarm at best.One of the salmon starters was inedible,it was mainly bones and tail end.One of our party sent her fish back and the replacement did not appear by the time the rest of us had finished(she had to eat elsewhere later)We did request to see the chef but we were refused.All in all the meals fell very short of expectation and we will not be returning.

“Not my cup of tea”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you leg Egg and chips then this place will suit you but it was not for me. A bit too basic as a venue and there are much better pubs in the location.

“Rather Tasty”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

On an evening out with my friend a few weeks ago, we decided to grab a bite to eat with our drinks as the food had been recommended, we were not disappointed and although what we ordered was typical pub grub, there was an array of interesting meals to be had. On the basis of a good experience, today, Mothers Day, my family took my Mum there for there special Sunday roast all set up for the occasion. what a surprise to walk in to find we were immediately greeted and shown to our seats. The meal came quickly and the service was second to none, well done to all the staff who made such a huge effort to ensure everything was perfect. The background music was not too loud and the atmosphere was very pleasant indeed.
