We managed to have our late lunch just before last order. Shenanigans' food was recommended by our friend before and it was so true! My husband had Irish breakfast and I had Shenanigans Stack which was offered with thinner slice of bread for me (^_^)....More

Best breakfast and Guinness on the south coast, providing the perfect hang over cure. Welcoming staff, who really care about good customer service. Fantastic for rugby, as Portsmouth's only 'rugby pub'. A must go venue when in southsea.

One of the best bars in Southsea with a real authentic feel to it. Really relaxed with good service. Would recommend a visit to anyone looking for a decent bar in Portsmouth.

Without doubt Southsea's finest hangover cure. It takes quite a skill to be a brilliant night spot, a great day venue (for sport etc) and be a well renowned food place too. One of my favourite places in Portsmouth.

I had a loaded 'boxty' which was tasty and well cooked. Staff were friendly and the place was buzzy but not noisy. Would go again. they don't accept children as they serve alcohol.

Typical irish pub to enjoy an irish breakfast with a pint of beer in the tables of the street if you have a sunny day

OK. So Shenanigans is a pretty famous Irish bar in southsea. It is famous particularly for their breakfasts, they serve large traditional cooked breakfast. And despite the food being large, the space within the venue is not. There are a few tables scattered around that...More

A very friendly bar (I haven't eaten here) with a great atmosphere, rugby on the TV and top class Guinness. It gets pretty packed out , which is understandable. Regulars seem to enjoy the bar stools and a more than happy to interject in to...More
