A large Fullers Pub and Restaurant which due to its commanding location at the Point in the cobbled Portsmouth Old Town operates more as a restaurant for the tourists than a pub for drinking.
Very modern décor throughout there is a pleasant wooden floored bar area but the commanding feature is the very large all glass conservatory restaurant section bolted onto and running the length of the river facing part of the pub that gives commanding views of the estuary. Then additional to this is another dining room known as the Vanguard room at the very back.
If you are only after a beer then I would say this pub is best used on a fine weather day, such as the one we were blessed with, when you can use the outside drinking area, known as the Lower Deck, with its fine views towards the Spinnaker Tower.
The bar has four pumps with Pride, Seafarers and HSB as the permanent beers and then the Fullers seasonal brew was on the fourth, and the Seafarers went down well in the sunshine.

Large Fuller's pub with Harbour views, much like its Greene King next door neighbour The Spice Island Inn it's another tourist centric pub, four sticks on the bar serving Seafarers,HSB,Pride and Front Row, It may be an iconic pub but it left me unimpressed, there are much more interesting back street boozers not so far away, and with more interesting beer.
I wouldn't plan a revisit.

This iconic Fullers (was Gales) pub is well described below. It continues to provide reasonable food, including a good seafood menu, though it is a bit overpriced and I’m sure the standards have slipped over the last 3 years or so. The views across the Harbour to the historic Fort Blockhouse the other side and the ability to watch the waterborne traffic at all hours make it a restful and pleasant escape from the bustle of the City centre. The staff were a bit amateurish and inefficient on this occasion. There is free WiFi and a range of teas. There were 4 ales on, all from Fullers. I had faux-HSB in another doomed attempt to recapture the Horndean Brewery’s golden years, but alas, HSB – like nostalgia - isn’t what it used to be. It’s well worth seeking out and makes a good addition to a City crawl.
