Quite similar to the Eldon in having original exterior and done out (though not so corporate) interior. pretty much all Wadworth brews - albeit well kept versions.

Attractive, pleasant pub with civilised punters and a community atmosphere. Often quietish so easy to get a seat. The beer is Wadworths plus a guest (Irving's Frigate for me: great stuff). However when I visited last time early on a Friday night there was only pump on, which was bad plannning. The food and bar snacks are a bit strange: all home cooked but the chef's style may not be to your liking.
Still it's definitely worth a visit if you're in Southsea.

Good mix of locals in a Victorian setting. Wadworths ales in great condition. Friendly young staff who actually wanted to talk. As I'd just been in the excellent 'The hole in the wall' this place was in no way a step down in standard. Check out the piano in the small beer garden. Must rate a 7/8.

Like the nearby Eldon Arms this was a regular stop for me 25 years back. Then it was run by a couple of lovely old ladies and had Blackfoot Sue with Standing in the Road on the Juke Box. Them were the days. Its gone up market (going for the arty crowd like me) and grown in size to include a larger seating area and a small court yard. Both fine by me. It still has the look of being an old pub, Victorian fire place, wood floors, nice wood tables but why customs on ever seat. Does the local Piles Association frequent the place?. Moving on. Unlike the Eldon this place has local beer, well more local than the Eldon. Wadsworth by the barrel load. Good stuff as well, 6X, Henry IPA and the summer light bitter Red, White & Brew. For £3.70 a good price considering the rip off places down in Old Pormpey. The food looked good as well. This place gets an extra point for not selling Pride.

Been in this pub several times and the only good pint i have had is the irving frigate.
The landlord tried telling me that the henrys tasted funny because it was a new barrel.!!
Most of the time there is no beer at all.
