Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Portland Arms

Unspoilt single-storey pub dating from the 1930s with the island bar having a simple Art Deco look. There is a door on each side of the entrance but they lead to the opposite sides of the same servery, with the former off-sales hatch in between. 2/3rd-height wood-veneer panelling on all walls but little else in the way of decoration. However, there are also separate snugs in each of the far corners. No real ale, unfortunately, so settled for the Tennent's Special 70/- (£3.00). However, the Camra national inventory interior makes this well worth a visit as there almost nothing quite like it elsewhere in the UK.
