This is a very good pub, excellent food, choice of 5 hand pumped bitters, 4 from different breweries, including local brews from Irving & Co Brewers in Portsmouth, Spitfire, Adnams Broadside

There is also, to my untrained eye, a good selection of lagers, wines, cider etc

Large open bars a lot given over to dining tables, plenty of space though for easy chairs to lounge in whilst chatting

Large & varied set menu + about 4 daily specials, all seem to be home cooked and freshly prepared from what I saw & tasted. Prices normally under a £10 but up to near £16 for large steaks & grills

Service was excellent, polite, prompt & helpful

Plenty of parking space, excellent views across the city

Do try it if in the area

Update 01 Sept 2009 - Went back on a Tuesday lunchtime, my word it is busy and noisy, due I suspect to the wooden flooring & hard surfaces echoing,unable to hear anyone speaking

Service was very slow initially, only one person behind bar at 1215, this increased to four later on

From this visit I now downgrade it from 4 stars to 3
