Housed in an 18th century pub in the heart of Southsea, King Street Tavern combines our passion with authentic Smoked/BBQ meats and great beer. With our focus on the rubs and the infusion of wood smoke, our meats are cooked 'low and slow' to perfection and paired with our wide range of beers & ales. As the birthplace of Portsmouth's first genuine smokehouse the King Street Tavern also boasts a fine selection of big & punchy craft beers, wines & spirits (especial whiskeys & Bourbons). The King Street's team of well informed staff bring you considered hospitality and great service in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. Eat, Drink and bring on the good times!

KST has reopened under new management. It's bright, clean and friendly. They'd been open for about a week when we visited. Food was excellent. Some might be put off by the prices but try eating before passing judgement. I had the Big Burger. Loaded with...More

We went to the opening night as the place has a new owner. Really nice setting inside and staff are friendly. Tasters were being given out, they were amazing. Looking forward to having a proper meal in there soon.

Good Real Ale and a great traditional Portsmouth corner pub. A pub where you can have a pint and a chat.

We had a good Sunday lunch here, friendly service and good coffee. Returned in the evening for the Sunday night quiz, which was good fun with a great crowd. It is nicer inside than it looks! :-)

A very good pub with the feel of a local pub with regulars. The menu is limited but everything offered is of excellent quality and value. The Ham egg and chips dish is absolutely marvellous.
