A terrraced pub and music venue, in Portland stone and blue paint work, with Jacobean styled dormer windows and bay window above the central entrance. A small patio area at the front. In the GBG 2010.

The interior is a single room in grey and white wood panel, with white and wood ceiling and a stone chiney breast. There were pictures with a nautical theme and some music posters for interest and a couple of dart boards for entertainment. There was no TV, the music was general and at a decent level. The service was very friendly and the small clientele consisted of a couple of locals (equally friendly) and a tourist or two.

Beer; tap stuff with Sharpe's Doombar and DBC's Best on handpull, both were fine

A superb pub. A good touch of the 70s, friendly, decent beer, no wonder George III stopped here for a swifty once - decent compensation for losing America, I think.

Pete Christie performed his acoustic singer songwriters set here, to a very welcoming crowd in 2009. Pete Christie is playing at The Royal Portland Arms again on 26 March 2010 at 8.30pm.
It is always a great show!
