The revamped venue reopened last Wednesday when the celebrations began and continued throughout the weekend, with a karaoke night.

The Farmhouse Hungry Horse team also welcomed the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Lee Mason, to try out the new facilities.

He said: ‘It was great to be back in there. I have often been in there enjoying myself. It is a nice friendly place and it is great to see it reopened with a new fresh look. It is brighter, cleaner and more sparklier - a lot fresher and I can’t wait to go back.’
