Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Wasn’t sure what to expect as not been to this pub for many years but was pleasantly surprised. Pub was not too busy so even though we had booked we had no trouble finding a good table. Staff were friendly and we soon had drinks and ordered our roast dinners. Absolutely delicious and great value for money. The whole experience was fab. Will definitely be back, especially as we don’t have an oven to cook with at home!

    Called in for Sunday evening meal. The service was very good and the food was most enjoyable. Gemma ensured that everything was to a very good standard.

    Nothing particularly special or unique in the fact that it’s just your typical club and plays the same old music over and over and I can see some people have had various experiences but I must say , compared to some of the other clubs the staff are actually pretty friendly - and that includes the bouncers / security staff , once a fight broke out outside the club and the security team handled it very well and weren’t overly aggressive like some of your typical thugs might be. Only bad thing is it’s cash only

    One of the better clubs in Portsmouth for sure , ps don’t go to the guildhall it is utter codswallop

    Nice place. People are very friendly. Came during the victorious festival but wasn't able to attend - looked really fun though. Lovely beach

    Visited for Sunday lunch. Lovely traditional style pub, clean and welcoming. Table service. Sunday lunch menu for roast dinners only, but choice of large or small, meat or vegetarian option and for me the best bit choosing which vegetables or other sides individually. Service good, we had to wait a while but were confident we would be served in turn but we're checked on by very pleasant staff regarding drinks. 3 in party all extremely happy with experience.

    We were sauntering along Albert Road & found this, the only NORMAL pub in the vicinity. Drinks at sane prices, unlike the places either side, no lunatics on drugs, clean (unlike *see above*), friendly atmosphere, great barstaff. All you want really! Back again next time we're down.

    The Leopold has an excellent exterior, the interior is very friendly. The real ales are well kept. One of the better pubs on Albert Road.

    Oh wow,how lucky are the locals to have this superb pub nearby? I'm actually thinking of moving and I'm a scummer!! Reminds me so much of my old local (unfortunately now a co-op). 2 bars, well kept beer,good selection too. Pool table, dartboards, fantastic proper landlady, clean,tidy, open fireplace and the crème de la crème,it's still got a jukebox instead of having to listen to someone's playlist. I love this pub

    Back home in Pompey for Christmas, came here a couple of times over the Christmas period great service, tasty food and excellent choice of beers - loved the IPAs.
    Decided that my last meal in the UK before I travelled back to Thailand would be a Roast dinner here, I had the Guvnors Roast glad I made this choice well presented, huge portion and great taste washed down with a few pints of IPA, no better way to remember home by till me next trip home.
    See you in the Summer !

    Although i really do not have to far to get (out my garage cross the road close)to here, so far has never let me down foodwise. For a price thats very reasonable their Gammon eggs and chips is one of my favs the menu has a great choice for good food at a great price. Although it's beginning to look a bit tired its not surprising as its a popular place anyday of the week.
