    This is the first pub I ever visited in Portsmouth. Its right at the front in old portsmouth, it's a Gales flagship pub and the interior is gorgeous, very traditional.
    There are some great real ales on offer. They do fish and chips to take away at certain points within the week, and bar snacks are avaliable downstairs.
    Upstairs there is a restaurant with great views of the ships coming into Portsmouth, the food is really good and not badly priced, the fish is excellent!
    Good service, everything you would expect from a flagship pub.

    This is a lovely pub in Old Portsmouth with great views across the water towards Gosport. The pub has a homely atmosphere with lots of comfy sofas and different areas leading off one another. It's perfect for a date too!

    The drinks are reasonably priced, with a selection of real ales as well as the regulation lagers on offer. The food is good and there is a fair selection on the menu. They also serve excellent fresh fish, which you can be sure has only recently come out of the water - delicious!

    The upstairs restaurant area is perfect for a lazy lunch watching the ferries and other boats coming into port.

    Been using it as a pub for many years,
    Location  excellent,

    Atmosphere  excellent,

    Staff  friendly and helpful,

    Upstairs seating food and Service  restaurant

    Downstairs food and Service  find a table and go to the bar,
    Food available  Fish and Chips in Paper, pub grub, sandwiches, Potatoes, wraps, baguettes..
    After using the place for years, took my wife, we decided to have a posh prawn and Krayfish Baguette each  I must say it was excellent, well mine was,

    wife found a hair on her plate after eating half her meal.. however we told the Bar Manager who immediately gave us a refund and apologised.. the only thing was, we hadn't actually payed at that point so being honest we gave him the refund back and only paid for one meal.. he was very good about it, I am sure it was an isolated incident, and if you run a business with a high turnover you will always get the odd stray hair, for all we know it could have been from a customer..
    but up until then it was really nice, and we had a window seat which is recommended.

    Having a Lager after a busy day at Portsmouth University. Fantastic view across the harbour at night. Good service at the bar.
