About the Pub

This lovely, Grade II listed Victorian street corner tavern is a perfect example of traditional pub architecture. Known as the Diamond for 150 years, the ornate frontage is courtesy of Portsmouth pub architect A E Cogswell, who was commissioned in the late 1880s by Brickwood's Brewery. In 2006 the pub was renamed the King Street Tavern by present owner Wadworth. The walls are wood panelled and the bar is softly lit. The walls are now decorated with images of Americana and portraits of US musicians from the world of blues and rock & roll. Furnishings are a mixture of traditional tables and chairs, plus upholstered bar stools and high tables. Up to eight cask ales are sold - six of which come from the Wadworth range, plus two guests from independent breweries, sourced nationally. A selection of 'craft' keg beers is dispensed from taps on the wall behind the bar. Live jazz is performed at 14:00 on Sundays. A patio garden stands on the south side of the pub.
