Steve C left this review about The Pembroke

The Pembroke is a proper backstreet no frills local’s boozer. The U-shaped interior houses a piano and dartboard to the right of the bar and seating under a plasma screen to the left. No live sport was advertised but there was some low background music playing.
Standard keg is available from the bar that also supports three hand pumps that were drawing Abbot Ale, London pride and Bass. The food stretches to £1 rolls. I found the service to be polite. This place won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I would recommend to fans of old school pubs.

A traditional corner pub that's a bit battered round the edges. Staple shaped, with a pleasing half decagonal bar upper, a nice dark varnish corner area with some Pompey memorabilia and floor-to-ceiling tongue and groove panelling. Pretty busy for a Friday lunchtime. Three ales on; GK Abbot, London Pride and a warm, lacklustre Bass (NBSS 2). Shame it was a bit slapdash, a bit more care and it could be a draw.

Tris C left this review about The Pembroke

Small and very traditional, a cosy corner locals’ pub dating from at least the late 19th century, sporting a slightly nautical theme. A very friendly barmaid coped admirably with the hoard that had just descended upon her. There are cheap rolls from the bar by way of food, but the ale selection comprises Abbot, Pride and Bass which I last had in a can of shandy circa 1973. At £1.95 it was a little steep and not great, but this is ‘Old Portsmouth’, so you’re paying for the location.
This isn’t a bad little place though some might find a bit blokey. It’s probably best appreciated as part of a crawl rather than event destination, but the choice of beer is a little lacklustre.
