Looking for a proper pub in Pompey? Here are five of the best...
41 High Street
A great example of a self-styled ‘village pub’ in the heart of Old Portsmouth, The Dolphin is also the city’s oldest watering hole, dating back to 1716. Modern renovations have left original features intact, including a window frame said to have been signed by Nelson.
The Hole In The Wall
36 Great Southsea Street
The Hole In The Wall has consistently won the CAMRA pub of the year, which is testament to their ever-changing casks on offer. There’s also a menu featuring sausage and mash and sandwiches.
The Duke of Buckingham
119 High Street
The Duke of Buckingham is a classic pub for grabbing a pint. It’s quiet, cosy and (like any good pub) has all manner of strange paraphernalia tucked in every nook and cranny.
17 London Road
The Tap has a family-friendly atmosphere and welcoming staff. They are renowned for serving great home-made food at reasonable prices, including their award-winning roasts. Weekends get livelier with a variety of entertainment.
The Ship Anson
10 The Hard
An iconic naval pub for sailors on shore leave, located on The Hard just outside the historic dockyard, The Ship Anson’s striking mock Tudor frontage hints at its historical significance. Offering a range of real ales and food.
