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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed a night and it was warm and comfortable with nice hot shower. Bed had a mattress protector on but had no bottom sheet. A little disappointed we couldn’t make a cuppa as no sugar or coffee. Stayed for lunch which was nice and hot and lots of vegetable and meat was nice. But gravy was packet and the stuffing was a hard ball. Landlord was a mixture of very nice on arrival but was grumpy end of night with a couple of locals who were talking to us and it was a little uncomfortable although he did apologise in the morning. So value option if you’re near by . Plus was free games of pool .

Steve & Karen were the best hosts that you could ask for, we stayed for dinner 3 nights in a row and tried a different dish each night. The food was incredible and cooked to perfection every night. The pub has a very cozy and inviting atmosphere, the log burner was lovely considering how cold the temperature was outside. The kids enjoyed playing pool and couldn't wait to go back each night. This pub is a hidden gem and an asset to the village. The beer is also worth a mention as it's nicely chilled and very fresh. I can't recommend this pub enough and I hope to be re visiting soon.

We came here for an early evening meal on thr last night of our holiday. The pub itself is fine and has a lively beer garden. The owner was really friendly and there was a good selection of drinks. The food is okay. The menu is very limited and only 1 vegetarian option. There burgers and pizza were enjoyed by the children but some of the adult meals weren't great the ploughman's is som3thing I would put together at home and was very expensive and the hunters chicken was over cooked and the ham wasn't what I was expecting As I say a great pub for a drink in the sun great staff but I would eat before you come.

Had a weekend here before Covid. the accommodation was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. fantastic outlook over the Tarka Line. easy access and parking. Beer and food were exceptional. The owners asked what time we wanted breakfast as there was no set time which i thought was fantastic. They offered to take us to the nearest train station and pick us up as the train only stops once a day in Portsmouth arms station. all in all a fantastic stay and we will be returning very soon

Pub is on a very busy road and isn’t very inviting from first look. However the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the drinks and food are very good value. The pretty beer garden backs on to the railway line. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

We were in the area for a family event and needed dinner. Our cousin, who is a regular, suggested the portsmouth arms. We're a slightly rowdy bunch, and were a little worried we wouldn't be welcome as tourists in a local village pub. Four of us went along and were given a warm greeting from the landlord. He honestly looked delighted to see us. Service was prompt. Another of our group turned up and was directed to our table without hesitation. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, as were drinks. I don't get down this way often, but I'd definitely go again!

Five of us headed to the Portsmouth Arms after a day of travelling for a much needed beer and food. Walking into the traditional pub we were greeted by the very friendly barman, who made us feel very welcome throughout. Food and drink were reasonably priced, and the food (I had a veggie burger) was really tasty and served with a smile. what I also loved was the huge array of board games, as well as pool table and dart board. Unfortunately we had to be some where later in the evening, but next time we visit the area we will definitely spend an evening in the bar. Can't wait to return!
