“Great little visit”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Having seen this pub advertised on my Vegan websites I thought I'd give it a try so popped in on the way back from Bournemouth. I had the Vegan burger with peppers, onions and jalapeños and my husband had a cheese and bacon burger. Both meals were really tasty and served with big tasty wedges. It was a struggle to finish. Really worth the money and the visit. Nice pub with friendly staff and tasty food for meat eaters and vegans alike.

“A Proper Pub!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

I'll often pop to The Gordon Arms for a couple of beers before heading to a local Indian Restaurant up past the bingo hall. It's nice to have a decent 'proper' pub that usually has a good selection of ales and friendly staff. In fact I'll go past a couple of other pubs to come here!

I've not tried the food but the menu does look really good with a varied selection at reasonable prices & I've heard customers commenting to each other that the food is really good.

I've also met friends here for a boozy evening and the atmosphere is always good - busy without being cramped. The guys that run it are always pleasant and that comes across from the staff too. If anyone asks me whether I know any decent places to go for a drink in the Portswood area I will normally mention the Gordon. Cheers guys.
