    'The pub regularly has a real fire'....Just a shame it's always outside and usually on the roof.

    'The pub often has lock-ins'....It reminds patrons of their time inside Wormwood Scrubs and Wakefield.

    'The pub has a wide selection of beers'....Unfortunately, none of them are bought on the premises. More brands of supermarket lager than you can shake a stick at.

    Any more?
    An exuberant and lively pub with entrepreneurial customers, the staff offer a new dimension in customer service. Very flexible opening hours.

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways drink in hand, shouting "Holy Shit what a ride!"

    'Community local, get your prescriptions here'.....but don't expect them to be free if over 60

    'Free live sport, boxing and cage fighting most nights'.....participation "encouraged".

    If you do you'll need to get lots of tattoos, lose part of an ear and several teeth just to fit in.

    Actually that's the whole of Farnworth not just this pub.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Here's another one
    "A PUB has been ordered to close after police warned that someone would be killed there if it was allowed to remain open.

    The Portsdown Inn had been allowed to develop a culture of late night lock-ins and violence, a meeting of Fareham Borough Council’s licensing panel heard."

    I have been in one of them Thomas Lord http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/59775/ and agree it is a great pub, local brews & food. It is not cheap, ensure you have a good credit card or well stuffed wallet, but let's face it, it is in the Meon Valley not some sink estate oop North and locals can well afford the prices and thatched cottages

    May be too foodie for some PuG reviewers, but worth dropping in if in area

    PS named after the bloke who founded Lord's cricket ground, he is buried in the village

    Clearly a very newsworthy item. Click on the thumbnail pics for my claim to fame!
