On our regular christmas tours we always include the Barley Mow. There is a large 'room' with a pool table, juke box, & dart bar - & they supply the arrows. Bar staff friendly & very efficient. There is another large room, set out more as a 'lounge' style. In previous times there have been bands playing. Keeps good ales

The barley mow was part of our old Portsmouth tour and what a find. Terrific beers, very friendly bar staff and a fantastic enclosed pretty garden. The four of us enjoyed our drinks and enquired about any food. When we asked if we could have some toasted sandwiches, the barman went across the road and bought some bread as he had run out. Our food arrived within 20 minutes. What service. We gave him a tip as the whole visit was excellent. We intend going back in the near future

Looking for refreshment in Southsea and found this place hiding down a side street.
Friendly with a good selection of ales.
Entertainment in the form of the pub cat who insists on running up and down on the keys of the piano

Since moving to Portsmouth in November, I've explored the area and found this is one of the best pubs in Southsea.
Excellent staff and locals both friendly and welcoming. Great ales changing every other day, plus a wide selection of other drinks. A garden that I fell in love with, a wood fire in the winter months and a sun trap in the summer.
All round excellent service, good live music and great atmosphere.
