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

Modern bar / kitchen with a rather canteen-like arrangement of tables and glazed white brickwork in the bar area which gives a rather sterile feel. Good selection of ten craft keg beers supplemented by a couple of cask ales (including a so-so External IPA from Northern Monk).

Another new addition to the Southsea drinking scene, Croxtons opened in April 2018 and bills itself as a Kitchen and Tap House. To be honest I got more kitchen or even canteen than tap house, with its stripped-down minimalist interior with white tiled walls interspersed amongst wood panels and bare flooring with bare wood tables and chairs positioned in a regimented fashion throughout. To the extent that the bar positioned on the far wall gave the impression that it was more an afterthought.
In saying that the bar does support ten keg taps on the front sections and two real ale pumps on the side section. As well as the two cask beers mentioned below there were craft options from Cloudwater, Moor Beer Co, Black Iris and the local Staggeringly Good Brewery. I went for the Moor Beer Co All Dayer IPA as it was the lowest ABV of the craft offerings and it was fine.
The Kitchen side did look decent from what I could see from one of the table menus being focussed on quick bites Tacho’s, Burgers and small plates and a quick look at Trip advisor shows it has scored highly for the kitchen since opening.
So, if I was eating, I would certainly consider Croxtons on the basis that I knew I could get a decent beer to go with it. But for just a beer I would probably go for the Lloyds next door. I say probably as I would need to check first that the fine example of Portsmouth womanhood who was sitting outside Lloyds as I walked past and promptly collapsed off her stool into my path wasn’t in-situ again.

As described by all below, given that I was on the same crawl.
I opted for a half of Arbor Zero Zero at £2.00. It tasted very citric to me but a more learned colleague told me that it was definitely off.
Not my kind of place at all.
