Last week I’d just walked up from the RM museum on the seafront, a good 15 minutes’ walk in 80⁰ sunshine, and I popped in here for a nice cool cider before the bus back to the City centre. When I walked in there was nobody behind the bar. No problem, I’ll wait. Presently a bloke walked behind the bar carrying some bottles for the shelves and looked at me waiting. “Hello mate. A pint of cider please” I asked the man now standing behind the bar. He seemed to take some offence to this and very bluntly replied “Yeah? I’m not serving.” With this he turned around and walked back out from behind the bar, sharing something I couldn’t hear (he had his back to me) with a couple of regulars, who looked at me and were a bit sheepish.
A few of the other regulars also thought this was quite amusing too, so I can only guess that this type of behaviour is par for the course in this place. On my way out of the door one bloke obviously saw I was rather embarrassed and said to me that “He’ll be up from the cellar in a minute mate”. I don’t suppose he heard me reply that when he was he should use one of his cellar bottles as a suppository.
I go to pubs all over the country, all the time, and have done for many years, so I know what I’m talking about when I say: Landlord: you are a rude, cretinous oaf that has no business running a pub in the 21st Century, and I predict your garishly painted little toilet of a boozer won’t survive until Xmas. I would also advise you to practice the phrase “Would you like fries with that?” for your next job, but on reflection you wouldn’t even get a McJob with your attitude.
If you find yourself in the neighbourhood I can recommend the 3 Marines just up the road. The outside is a bit run down but the people were very friendly and the cider was spot on. Avoid Sir Lion of Khazie like the plague.

One proper pub in eastney. Serves good ales and has a wine bar next door.

Another brilliant visit. Amongst others on were a golden. stout and a porter; just as it should be. Just noticed they have a bar billiards table as well so next time...

If you've walked from Farlington Marshes to Portsmouth, avoid the Harvester and Fayre and Square en route and work up a proper thirst and head to this place, about 15 minutes walk from the latter pub and 5 minutes north of the seafront at Eastney. From the outside, it looks like a Benidorm bar, a theme which continues inside with brewer's umbrellas affixed to the ceiling and a yellow painted interior - it's great, quite frankly. The beer we had was perfect - Titanic Plum Porter and Crop Circle, spot on. It's not in an area I'd rush back to, but if you've walked from one end of Portsmouth to the east end of the seafront, it's worth checking out the beer here, then walking back towards Albert Road and trying the Leopold and Hole in the Wall further west...

What a strange road this is: only a few yards away from the aggro-crazy loudmouths in the 3 Marines (a real bunch of hard men when it's 5 against 1), and the EDL-friendly Alma there is this gem of a pub. Loads of quality beer, great staff and a relaxed atmos. PLEASE keep it up otherwise there is just no point in coming to this part of town...
