Boisterous but basically friendly bikers pub with decent selection of ales. Not sure it is worth 8.4 though.

Pompey boozer of the oldest kind - last used the pub 30 years ago and it wasnt much different! Not a place for families if you get my drift, but good honest pub with live music. My ale was actually past its best but didnt complain so dont know what reaction would have been though barmaid very friendly. My mates pint of a different ale was perfect though.

Called in with a bunch of friends whilst waiting for a ferry. Can't comment about the music or food, but agree 100% with the overall remarks made by other reviewers. A good place to spend the last hour in England before hitting the Continent!

Slightly in need of refurbishment, the Admiral Drake sits on its own plot just near the ferry terminal and has a large car park. It's a slightly wild pub, biker-friendly and both staff and clientele could be viewed as scary by some people. Everyone I spoke to was friendly, open and pleasant, although although there was some robust banter from a very mixed bunch of people (Dr Who would have felt at home here), so it's not a pub for the faint-hearted. They have regular music festivals, they tell me, so it would be interesting to come back for one of those.

The beer was excellent. I tried Abbott, Hobgoblin and London Pride; all were beautifully kept and enjoyable. Great beer, great people, great experience, and I would happily come back when visiting the area or waiting for a ferry.
