Went in to watch Scotland against South Africa, a once in a,lifetime match.
Scotland with a real chance to knock South Africa out of the world cup on home soil.
Huge match.

Managed to get a seat in front of the big screen, the view was obstructed because the management hadn't bothered to close down the pool table, located directly in front of the screen. So we had the lights from the table bleeding down the screen, and a bunch of idiots enjoying standing in front of the game while playing pool, badly, but hay ho we can still watch and hear the match.

They eventually left and we had an un-obstructed view. For about five minutes.

They turned the rugby off in favour of some overpaid foreigners running around screaming about their nail varnish being chipped. Chelsea I think they are called.

I urge all rugby supporters to boycott this pub. If they cannot be bothered to support the world cup on home soil, why should we support them?

As you will see, the previous review was left three years ago!

I visited on a Friday evening, one nameless "house bitter" pump and one Greene King IPA, hardly a beer officianados paradise.

Sky Sports News on the various tv's with pretty loud music playing in the background, very much a younger persons place.... I'm the advanced age of 45!

I would hazard a guess that there has been a change of manager / direction since the previous postings!

The Festing was the first pub we found in Southsea when we moved to Portsmouth 2 years ago from Newcastle and never found a better one. You can relax and enjoy a drink whilst chatting to people. It�s a pub which has something for everyone and has a great mix of people. You will always be greeted by a friendly smile from one of the lovely bar staff or Matt the manager.
Best Pub Ever! x
