About the Pub

This large corner house dates from the 1870s and was part of the Long's brewery estate for many years. Nowadays it is owned by Suffolk brewer Greene King. The pub sports a single, split level L-shaped bar room which is divided into distinct areas, with a raised deck towards the front of the house. An original fireplace with exposed brick surround can be found on the far left-hand wall. The bar has a laminated floor and is well furnished with a mixture of upholstered bench seats, armchairs and both high and low level tables. The walls display a collection of images of Portsmouth. The pub has a large, secluded patio garden to the rear.
