This prominent pub in North End's shopping district was rebuilt in 1937 to a design by A E Cogswell. Famously known as the Clarence Gardens until 2005, the interior consisted of two large bar rooms, with a central servery. The pub's reputation suffered for a time, with the licence being revoked temporarily in 1991. In 1995 it underwent a major refit and had its name changed to the Town House - part of a nationwide chain owned by then major brewer Whitbread.Make Clarence Gardens a centerpiece of your Portsmouth vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Portsmouth trip planner.

Pub has a good atmosphere with friendly staff. Reasonably priced for food and drinks. A good pub to go for lunch/dinner or a night out with friends. more »
Very high quality pints and not too unreasonably priced. Quick service and nice atmosphere
This is a typical sports bar with plenty of TV's and very cheap beers on certain days like weekends. A Green King loyalty card is needed. A full menu is also available.
