Portmsouth Arms | Traditional pub in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

Welcome

A traditional thatched pub at the heart of the local community

The Portsmouth Arms, as it stands today, was built in 1997 under a stunning 90 tonne thatched roof, with a traditional and welcoming interior. Under the main floor in the house lays a time capsule filled with items from mid- 1997. The capsule was installed by the Earl of Portsmouth before the pub opened to the public and the opening ceremony was attended by children from the local Hatch Warren Junior School, who are all now in their 30’s. An unveiling of the capsule is planned for the 25th Anniversary in 2022.

The interior of the pub combines a fabulous traditional dining room with more informal dining areas for eating, together with and a cosy and comfortable bar with relaxed seating, for those wishing to enjoy a drink with family and friends. In addition, our large garden (with an extensive and newly refurbished children’s play area) and separate outside patio, both with traditional garden furniture, have seating for around 50 and are perfect for the longer spring and summer evenings when you don’t have a care in the World!
