please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

It is certainly not closed and is actively promoting live music.

For a great, active punk evening at the Blue Anchor, see Pond Life 'Classic punk Riding on a New Wave' on Saturday 28th February 2015, from 9 p.m. Closed, indeed. It really will be alive that night. See and see you there.

I don't know where Janner gets his (mis)information from, but although 1 half is now a pizza restaurant, the other half is re-opening in the new year, it looks quite nice in there

Not only closed but demolished and housing developement rebuit on the top. Area now known as John Pound's Gate. Shame really, was quite a pub in its day

Closed ? Shame, came here once with a team from the Bell, Horsham for a three-way sporting challenge. We lost at pool, tied at darts and won at bar billiards. A great evening.

Ok nothing special, cheapish if I remember rightly.

A very busy and noisy high street pub, lots of TV screens, gaming machines and pool tables. Friendly atmosphere, but an average age of around 25. There were 2 handpumps advertising Flowers Bitter and Adnams Broadside, but both were off, so I settled for a Eurofizz to get me in the mood for French beers (I was on my way to the ferry).

They were advertising free BBQ food when you bought a pint, but I didn't try it as the garden was quite full.

Not really my kind of pub, and I think the lack of decent beer is enough to put me off coming back, especially whe there are so many goodpubs not too far away in Southsea.
