Due to the current national lockdown the Portland is closed.

Though restrictions will begin to be eased in April for outside service the small available space we have means we will remain closed (However our sister pub The Alex will be open, click here to book your table for their lovely garden space).

Following the announcement of the government roadmap we plan to reopen on Monday 17th May for inside and outside service as well as takeaway. We expect there to be social distancing, table service and the ‘rule of 6’ still in force and will be taking table bookings (open in the near future, stay tuned for announcement)
There is a possibility of some social distanced events taking place, including a special beer festival and comedy shows.

By June 21st government aim for almost all restrictions to be lifted and for service to return more to ‘normal’. We hope to return to a full program of gigs and events with normal standing shows and bigger crowd capacities whilst following all guidance to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all our guests.
See our Events pages for upcoming shows and advanced tickets.

We thank you all for your support and well wishes over the past year and can’t wait to open our doors and welcome you back.
