Gather at Gosport

Gosport Tavern in Portsmouth

Gosport Tavern is an HGTVed, 18th centurystyle eating house with simplistic but sublime décor, a warm atmosphere, and serious comfort food and cocktails.

Starters, salads, soups and sandwiches begin the delicious, concise menu.

Homey, satisfying entrees round things out, like the Tavern Fish and Chips (shown), Ale Mustard Glazed Bone-In Pork Chop, crabcakes, Vegetable Napoleon Stack and Tavern Meatloaf. The Spicy Mixed Greens and Bourbon Pecan Sweet Potatoes were favorite sides on our recent visit.

And this wouldn’t be an eatery from seasoned restaurateurs Eric Stevens and Karl Dornemann without fabulous cocktails, such as the P Cup (Square One Cucumber vodka, Pimm’s, muddled cucumber and lemon, with sparkling lemonade), also shown.
