Since moving to Portsmouth in November, I've explored the area and found this is one of the best pubs in Southsea.
Excellent staff and locals both friendly and welcoming. Great ales changing every other day, plus a wide selection of other drinks. A garden that I fell in love with, a wood fire in the winter months and a sun trap in the summer.
All round excellent service, good live music and great atmosphere.

Thank Tom B

Went the other week to an open mic night
The night itself was boring but seeing the hot redhead behind he bar was enough entertainment for me and my friends
Drinks reasonably priced

This is a great pub. It's relaxed and welcoming and serves a good selection. What makes it special though is the range of events/activities on offer. Live music evenings, meat raffles etc.

Real feel that this pub has a strong cohort of 'regulars' as many people seemed to know eachother and there was plenty of friendly banter going on.

Makes for a very enjoyable visit.

This really is everything a traditional English pub should be, unfortunately there aren't many left but this is one that is worth a visit. Friendly relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful garden. Not much food on offer but they do sandwiches and on the day we went in they had a bowl of chilli with crusty bread for just £3.50 and it was lovely. They also sell local fresh eggs. It's a shame there aren't more pubs like this around.

Good ales and decent music in the background.

Like a Portsmouth pub of earlier decades with its handy bar billiards table in the corner.

No Brickwoods beer in Pompey any more - which is a great improvement. This pub is close to the Hole in the Wall if you are trying a range of pubs.
