Cannot believe this hasn't been reviewed in 5 and a half years. I last went there about 12 years ago so cannot comment on its current status or beer quality. One of my best mates was a student at Portsmouth University and a number of us travelled down by car from North Surrey via the A3.

Like the previous reviews state it is very student orientated and more of a place for youngsters to get smashed on lager and shooters as opposed to middle-old aged men supping a session ale whilst thumbing through a copy of The Guardian.

I had a couple of games of pool and also recall the DJ playing tunes from one of the tables. Also pulled a pretty tidy Doris too. My night here is a bit of a blur which was down to swilling beer from the early afternoon onwards and possibly indulging in some other substances ;-)

Place scores an 8 for this visit alone and it now that I am a married father of 2 with limited opportunities to go out it is nights like this you really miss!

OK pub, aimed squarely at the student crowd, and perfectly good at what it aims to do. Shame the side pub (the "Duck @ the Dog"), which attracted a slightly older (ie 20s!) crowd, closed and after a brief period as a cider-only bar, is now nothing more than another room.

We visited the Cider House part of the pub recently, which is a small side-bar and a haven from the rest of the pub. And the best bit? Around ten PROPER ciders on offer, including Thatchers and Westons, and all of it well kept. Excellent to find such a place in Southsea!

Nice relaxed place. Quite studenty with good music (great DJs playing interesting music on the nights I've been recently) most nights. Beer is reasonably priced and if you find the main section a bit loud the next door bit is quieter. Highly recommended!

The one eyed dog is owned by the same man who used to own Wine Vaults.
It is pitched at a younger more student crowd than the vaults though and as such the music can be really in your face.
HOWEVER if you love alternative music then this is great as local DJs play music from a table in the bar - very unpretentious(which is always a good thing)

It's good in the day time for the free pool and juke box and is much less crowded than the evening when it can be difficult to get a seat.


if you like your beer i would recommend the Duck next door which is more Wine vaults style and very laid back.
for me it beats its sister (the dog) hands down on atmosphere and friendliness.
