Converted to flats. Troubled with thugs over the years and pretty unremarkable. Surprising it lasted as long as it did.

Oddly, given the comments from only 6 months previous, this place features in the current Good Beer Guide and indeed looked promising. However, how much difference a few weeks can make, as something obviously went seriously wrong after the local branch completed its survey for the last Guide, presumably almost 1 year ago.
I should say that there seems to be some improvement, in that the pub is now trading again. It is a solid-looking Victorian local and clearly could match the endeavours of other similar pubs in the area which are enjoying something of a renaissance on the back of good beer range and honest organic atmospheres.
However, there is plainly some way to go, as there were virtually no customers - a bleak sign on a Friday night even in late January - and although clips adorned the pumps, all were turned round.

I'm afraid that means a non-starter for me and mine, which was a shame. I can only hope that there is an upturn here that those more local to Southsea will eventually witness coming to fruition. If not, I can't see any other future in this climate that closure and conversion to housing.
