I've been to a couple of other places in this chain and was really disappointed in there tap list from the others I have been too. Maybe it was just an off time for them .

A chain restaurant with a presence in Portsmouth. Down from the parking garage on Hanover Street in a brand new building. A big space with fake pub d├ęcor. Lots of dark wood and beer memorabilia on the walls. A ratty-looking stuffed lion over the bar. Lots of TVs, which don't exactly add to the pub atmosphere. At least there was good 60s background music. On the walls around the bar area were some insipid drinking quotes, such as "you're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on."
An extensive beer list. More than thirty beers on tap and over fifty bottles. Four on cask. The beers were very ordinary, despite the number. I thought the best on tap was Southern Tier Pumpking. A few good Allagash bottles, but overall mediocre. My wife and I had the Pumpkin which was good, but $7.75 for the pint. I also had Geary's Porter in cask, which was good.
We had lunch, and the food was average, at best. My wife had tabbouleh salad, which was good except for the unripe tomatoes (in mid August). My vegetarian pizza was very pedestrian.
Service was the saving grace. We sat at the bar, and the bartender was attentive and friendly.
If we ever go back to this place, it will be because of the service.
