About King Street Tavern

If you love mountains of authentically smoked & BBQ food then you'll love Bear Bones BBQ Co at the King Street Tavern.
We opened the doors of our little grade II listed pub in 2016 & have been serving Portsmouth & South Hampshire with genuine smoked & wood-fired food ever since.
It wasn't long before our passion for open flame cooking got us noticed & we were awarded several national accolades for food & service excellence.
So come & enjoy Portsmouth's small pub with a big attitude where the food & service speak for themselves.

We came on a Sunday and we weren’t aware that the only food option was a roast dinner. I personally don’t get a roast dinner out as I’m just too fussy with what I have etc. So we did almost leave, but due to Covid, it’s bookings only anywhere. As it was, the roast was nice, but I’d have really appreciated knowing this beforehand. I did feel as though the price was a lot higher than it should have been.

One of the best meals me and my family have ever had and one of only the second best experiences in dining we’ve had from the welcoming to the meal and service provided the interaction from your team yesterday to myself, husband mother in law and especially the attention they paid my children was incredible, you should be incredible proud of the team you have and the service and experience they provide , we can’t wait to come back.

Was the perfect venue to welcome back beers in a beer garden atmosphere, a brilliant pub run by brilliant people. Would thoroughly recommend you try it out with great selection of beers and fantastic food.

Amazing food - every item on the plate had flavour and had been prepared using the best ingredients to enhance the flavour. I can not wait to come back for another roast as this has to be the best roast dinner I have ever had!

We had a table for 4 for my sons birthday, staff extremely friendly and accommodating, looked after us very well. My son is a chef himself and rated the food as excellent. I would thoroughly recommend the King Street Tavern
