A two room traditional corner pub, I found little of interest to this pub and it seemed lacking in any ambiance probably not helped by me being the only punter present. Just the choice of London Pride and HSB, I would likely walk past next time.

A traditional two-bar local restored to something of an historic feel, with minimal modern intrusions (if you ignore the CCTV!) but a little devoid of atmosphere. Draught beers were restricted to London Pride and HSB, but former tried and in good condition (Cask Marque listing). Advertising for new managers at time of visit, so perhaps it might improve.

This pub retains the separate two bar format, the front bar off the main road is the Public Bar, wood boarded floor, dartboard and fruit machine, spotlights and speakers indicate bands play here, some group called Soundpatch advertised for this Thursday at 9pm. Some original leaded obscure windows remain, there is also a decent Fuller's mirror, and a great B&W photo of the pub from long ago in the old Gale's livery. I had a quick snoop into the rear lounge bar, there are chunky wood tables in here and a few military prints but I didn't linger as the barmaid and her mate were gooning about in there with no other visitors.
Fullers now obviously, Pride, Seafarers and HSB, one unclipped, the lack of mainstream Chiswick based beers had me wondering about how the locals have accepted the takeover of their local brewery.
It was quiet on a Sunday lunch and no signs of food, ok for a quick pint along the main Southsea drag though, happy 4 hours on a Friday, 4-8, £2.50 a drink, some outdoor pavement seating. OK but lacking atmosphere and life Sunday mid-pm.
