I've been to this place a couple times and each time I left pretty unimpressed. The last time I went was the final straw for me though. The service was completely unprofessional IMO.

I ordered two Guiness (one for me, one for my friend) and the bartender proceeded to pour half of each and to give them a minute to let the foam settle. Well a minute turned into forty five minutes of the bartenders ignoring me, even when I attempted to get their attention. Well, forty five minutes later, I got the beers and got to hang out with my friends. Also, the two Guiness were a total of $12. One of the worst experiences at a bar I've ever had.

The selection wasn't the best there either. SOme nice English brews, but nothing deviating too much from bitters and some brown ales. There was Shipyard's XXXX IPA on tap, but I'm not a huge fan.

I avoid here now, even though I always hear good things. This is the only place I have ever given a subpar tip (I left $1 for the two Guiness) to a bartender to. If you're in Portsmouth, the Blue Mermaind (Great service) and the Portsmouth Brewery are the places to go.

Late night found me looking for a place to dine in Portsmouth. Found the Coat of Arms to be lively on a midweek night. Second floor walk up , the entrance doesn't impress. Upstairs the bar looks inviting with tables all over and darts boards in the back. I grab a bar stool and check out the menu. Old speckled hen iPa cream flow draft is delicious . Would definitely repeat this beer here. Order the cottage pie from the decidedly British menu. Second beer is a twisted thistle iPa. Good but liked the hen better. Decent service, food is good. Nice place, worthy of a repeat.

A very down to earth, dare I say "divey" English pub. I friggin love this place. If you want casual and a chill spot, this is it. Not a huge selection of beers but a good assortment on English/British brews and a few local guys like Shipyard, Throwback, etc.... They have an excellent assortment of casks which is awesome. No one's pretentious, the bartenders are cool and it's a good place to hang and/or catch some soccer. My #1 thing about this place is their beer battered fish and chips. Pair that with a Fullers ESB or any ESB they have for that matter and it'll be a kick ass meal. One of the very best fish and chips I've ever had and I am constantly coming back for it. They do trivia on Sundays which is pretty sweet to get together with people. This is my go to Portsmouth spot and I'm sure it's a favorite of many.
