About the Pub

Known as the Lord Napier until 1976, the Marmion Tavern took its name from another pub that stood close by on the opposite side of Marmion Road. The main bar area has a bright and airy interior, with light grey wood-panelled walls and a bare-boarded floor. Furnishings consist of a mixture of upholstered armchairs and sofa, plus traditional seating at small tables. Additionally, there are a number of stools at the front of the pub that appear to have been made out of recycled materials. Plenty of old black and white prints of bygone Southsea adorn the walls and the pub is illuminated by clusters of quirky teardrop-shaped lights suspended from above. The separate dining area to the rear has an exposed brick wall and there is a collection of ornately-framed mirrors to the left. An old Marmion Road street sign is prominently displayed.
