This is a very pleasant pub and although the beer range and quality was good for our visit, the real star here is the building. I won’t repeat previous information pertaining to the downstairs inside and outside layout of this well maintained historic building, but will add a small tip. The toilets are on the first floor up the central staircase and whether you have the need to use them or not I suggest you take the trip. But then sneak up one flight of stairs more to the original custom house rooms on the second floor that I guess are now used as function rooms and have been left in their Georgian splendour by Fullers.
All six hand pumps were in operation for our visit with a good Fullers range on including a very well kept Tiny Rebel Cwtch as a guest. As mentioned below most customers come here to eat but the outside tables to the front are a great spot for an alfresco pint when the sun is high, as fortunately it was for us.

Multi-room Fullers pub, very Georgian and elegant, one gets the impression they would prefer it to be just a restaurant but the bar area is nice and the beers are very well kept, one of the best pints of London Pride I’ve had in years and it’s a good beer when kept well. Six pulls with a range of Fullers beers, bottles of the sublime 1845 and London Porter are also available. Much of what Quinno says still applies.

An impressive conversion by Fullers, situated in the middle class mecca of Gunwharf Quays and nicely appointed, with exterior views of the quay and a lovingly restored dock crane. Claims of it being the ‘only traditional pub in the Quays’ should be taken with a pinch of salt though. As mentioned below the entrance leads into a small lobby with a tea/coffee area, hang left to get to the bar. Multi-roomed and tastefully styled within, including maritime prints and a bit of Brunel. Presumably a good degree of the fittings are original such as doors and fireplaces. Six ales available; Pride, ESB, HSB, Seafarers, Spring Sprinter (cold but fresh and in good form) and a guest from Holts. Usual Fullers pricing structure so don’t expect to get much change back from £4 a pint. Extensive outside suntrap seating makes for a good year-round venue. Chilled background music playing on my late morning visit (opens at 10) and the place was slowly filling up, almost certainly a busy day’s trade in the offing. It’s certainly worth seeking this one out and is handy as a first pint/last pint venue if using the Portsmouth Harbour BR.
