The Portland

Picture source: Barry Taylor

The Portland was situated on Portland Street. This was a Gales (now Fullers) pub with HSB, BBB and Light Mild on electric pump. Early shots around 1900 show this as a nice Victorian building, but it became a 1960's 'Thunderbirds' style boozer that Gales seemed to like. Another Fareham pub with a 'reputation'. It was demolished c.1988 to make way for car parking and the whole street no longer exists.

David Brown 1975-1982 As far I remember the landlord just had to glance at you, and if he didn't like the look of you, he would immediately bar you. I came in with some locals so was accepted.  His wife was French and she had some money and property in France so he wasn't really bothered in making that much money.
