Old Boots left this review about The Old Customs House

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.

Some previous reviews have this place nailed so I won't dwell. Pretty much run of the mill Fullers establishment with a decent variety of Fullers brews and guests on the bar. Made a nice little pit stop whilst visiting the area with family. Worth a visit and much better than the adjacent fizzy lager joints.
