“Never had a bad meal here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

This place is well known for good beer, and the reputation is still deserved. I have also enjoyed all of the many meals I've had here.

“Good beer & plentiful food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

The beer's good (seasonal pumpkin) and our pastrami sandwich on rye was good quality and sizeable. Lunchtime visit. Surrounding diners seemed happy with their choices, we certainly were with ours.

Great place to meet friends over a host of great beers. Very knowledgable waitresses who explain all the beer choices. Will return next time I visit Portsmouth.

“Great beers on tap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

My suggestion is to go to the downstairs lounge and enjoy one of the two cask conditioned ails on tap. Quaint bar with large screen tv. Couches. Nice and comfortable. Service always good, and friendly.

“Great local brewery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Good beers and reasonably priced food (salmon was excellent). We always frequent the "local" brew houses and this one was great.
