Visited the Still and West for lunch with friends. Had a table upstairs with a fabulous view over the sea. Good menu, reasonably priced. Service was pleasant if a little slow. Food tasty and piping hot. The ambience was lovely , we could have stayed all afternoon.

The Still and West is a well known pub being right on the Portsmouth Harbour waterside. Downstairs they serve fairly standard pub food but the upstairs restaurant is well worth a visit for the great views of the busy harbour and a decent menu with good daily specials. I have visited a number of times and never been disappointed.

Located in old Portsmouth by the sea, the pub is quite nice but the food is average. I had the traditional fish and chips (cod) and a fish platter to share. Was Ok but nothing spectacular. Its worth it due to the views. They do have nice draft beer, as it's expected in a pub.

My bother is visiting from Australia and for a Sunday lunch I thought The Still and West would be good to eat in the bar. I have never had a bad eating experience eating here but today was just deplorable. Family arrived at 3.30pm, placed 2 food orders 2 minutes apart from each other. First order arrived within 10 minutes,... More

Excellent location on Portsmouth Harbour watching all the shipping activity. We ordered fish & chips served in traditional paper wrapping - this tasty but not outstanding. We also had a couple of pints of good real ale.

The perfect place to take mother-in-law whose ideal lunch is fish and chips. The fish is fresh, gorgeous chunky chips and all served wrapped in paper - a British classic!! Grab a table by the window or outside if the weather is warm and watch the ferries and yachts sailing by.

A group of friends dropped in for lunch after a visit to The Mary Rose Museum (superb). The setting is brilliant with views over the Solent and Gun Wharf Quays. We ate in the restaurant upstairs. A couple of sharing plates arrived reasonably speedily, which was good as we then had to wait for an hour before the man courses... More

We came here for dinner on a Friday night. I'd booked a table in advance but didn't get the impression they had any record of our booking. Luckily there was a table free by the window upstairs. Even though it was pitch dark we still had a great view of the ferries passing by. I had mistakenly expected it to... More

I expect most people mention the view of Portsmouth harbour from The Still & West - goes without saying it's fantastic. However, My partner and I visited last Sunday, and we both agreed that our meal at the Still & West was by far the best meal we had all weekend. I had the wild mushroom gnocchi and my boyfriend...

Came today knowing that a Sunday would inevitably be busy. After an hour long wait for food we got our roasts and 3 out of 4 of them were cold. Our waiter took them back to the kitchen and 5 minutes later came back with freshly plated up hot food. Can easily say that the food was really good but... More

The Still and West is the perfect relaxed dining experience, with beautiful views of the busy port of Portsmouth and full table service in our upstairs restaurant. With a wide selection of Fullers real ales and wines from around the world unique to Fullers, it is the ultimate dining experience. We are always family friendly and welcome dogs into our downstairs bar area, where a selection of specialality teas and Brewer Street coffees are also available. We have a wide selection of specials changed daily from fresh fish to Hampshire meat and breakfast served with Fullers very own fresh sausage and black pudding, washed down with a complimentary tea or americano coffee.
