“Very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Had lunch with Colleagues at The Portsmouth Arms today. It was the second time I have been there and it was the second time I had been impressed with the food, the atmosphere and the cleanliness (the loos are absolutely immaculate which gets a big thumbs up from me!). I have forgotten the name of the dish I had (vegeatrian platter maybe?) but it was beautifully presented, fresh and plentiful. My Colleagues choices ranged from a Cobb salad, to sausages and mash, and various burgers, all of which were pronounced good. It's not gourmet but good food at a reasonable price and well worth a visit.

“Great meal and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I visited the Portsmouth Arms recently for an end of term celebration. We were able to email through an order with our booking in order to make the waiting time much shorter. The tables had been set up appropriately for our party of 20 and the food came out altogether. The baguettes were tasty and fresh and good value for money. There was a good range of drinks on offer and the dessert + coffee offer was well received. Would definitely visit again.

“Night out with the girls”

I visited the Portsmouth Arms recently for a night out with my work collegues. The pub was very busy, waited a long time for the food. I thought the food was okay.
