Steve C left this review about The Northcote

The Northcote has an L shaped bar to the left that houses a dartboard on a raised area and a pool table at the rear. I counted four hand pumps amongst the premium and standard keg offerings. In the right-hand side of the pub is a lounge bar with very red décor. The same ale offerings are available in here. Out the back is a paved beer garden full of picnic tables. I found the service to be polite and enjoyed my stay on the recent Friday evening I visited.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Northcote

Surprising number of decorative features on both façades of this side-street corner pub, and it retains two bars separated by a central servery unusually featuring a window between the back-to-back bar-backs. The lounge is comfortably furnished, with a pool table and dartboard available in the public bar. Four real ales on handpump: a 'house' Northcote Hotel amber ale from Wadworth, Landlord, Long Man APA and Irving Invincible (£2.05, half).

Quinno _ left this review about The Northcote

Much as I recall it from my two previous visits. Four ales available as usual; a house beer from Wadworth, Tim Taylor Landlord, Long Man APA and Irving Invincible. My Longman was fine, an NBSS 3, though there were unfavourable reports about the Irving which was a shame. Worth popping in for one when you’re doing the area and pop by Saint & Greavsie in the lobby to say hello.

Another Pompey backstreet pub with nice exterior tiling. Two bars, with a separate entrance to each). Rugby was on in the public area with a vociferous and sweary crowd, also pool and darts in there. I retreated to the much milder carpeted lounge. This was rather pleasant, plenty of knick-knacks, decorated in the mid-90s by the looks of it and had the feel of your Nan’s lounge, with an assortment of porcelain, bottles and clocks on display as well as a homage to Sherlock Holmes. Local radio was piped through here which made for a rather grating clash with the rugby crowd over the way, which could be observed via the unusual bar back, which has glass instead of mirrors. A selection of daily papers and CAMRA mags spotted, which are always a welcome sight. Four ales on, a fair selection of Doom Bar, Wadworth 6X, Hop Back Summer Lightning and Irving invincible (good nick). Not a bad stop. Rated 7
