Firstly, I've never had a bad meal there. The food and drink is regular pub grub and is good. That's a good thing. There is an average size beer garden with children's play area, which is also good. The last good thing is that it's...More

A cheery welcome, a well kept pint and a lovely meal; those three things make the Portsmouth a go-again pub. Reasonable prices topped off a great visit here after a few years. The shame was that all the Sunday roasts were gone! Speaks for itself...More

Nice landlord. Menu offered normal & large sizes. My friend recommended ‘large’ - I did & it wasn’t an overly large size, I don’t know what the small is like. But the food was nice & average pricing. Would definitely return.
