“Great Place For Entertainment”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

You don't go to the Press Room for the food . . . You go there for the local entertainment . . . this is the venue for great local bands to perform. They have a large following so "room at the bar" may be crowded but that's okay since it's part of the scene. A must visit while in Portsmouth.

“lively atmosphere”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

This is like an old London Pub. Nice atmosphere, bar menu includes chilli, fish and chips, burgers, etc. Beer on draft, and then upstairs...great band music, lively bar and food service. Not gourmet, but good pub grub.

“Hard pressed to find a better spot”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Irish nachos! Fabulous music! Great staff! Authentic building.....there's a ton of reasons why The Press Room has been around forever. May it shine on.
