I went to Coat of Arms this past weekend. It was pretty easy to find, located in the downtown Portsmouth area and close to music store favorites Oracle and Odyssey & Bull Moose Music.

You go up up the worn staircase and you're greeted with a good sized bar area with tables and chairs. A cool red painted phone booth too. This place goes for an authentic English Pub feel. It was fairly empty while I was there during lunch time and our service was attentive.

In terms of beer selection, you can expect about 15 draft selections with two of those being cask drafts. I ordered a cask beer that was really tasty. They were offering Shipyard Old Thumper and Prelude. Regular draft beers included Carlsberg, Belhaven Scottish Ale & Twisted Thistle IPA, Fuller's London Pride, Hoegaarden, Shipyard Old Thumper, Guinness, Newcastle, Smithwicks and Boddingtons.

Bottled beer highlights were Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout, Unibroue Maudite & La Fin Du Mod.

This place has a comfortable and casual atmosphere with board games, pool, dart boards and a cool Ms. Pac Man set up. Worth checking out for an English or Irish beer or a good stop on a pub crawl in this town.

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.
