This was our third time visiting Portsmouth and also the third time to Portsmouth Brewery. A fantastic spot for a great lunch. Wouldn’t miss it. The lamb burger is awesome and their sides are great. Enjoy!

Charcuterie was good and varied. Sharp provolone and jalapeño cheddar were delicious. Ham was delicious. My partner enjoyed the sour beer and the kolsch.

Yes this is a brewery and I’m sure the beer is great, but for us it’s all about the mussels. We’d eaten here years ago and have always remembered the mussels, so our expectations were high. The spicy coconut, lemongrass, Curry mussels are delicious. You...More

Good afternoon (sorry for the tardy reply). Yes, we do have a small patio, but, alas, we can not allow pets there as it is only accessible from inside the building.
