AUTHENTIC SMOKEY BBQ IN THE REFERBISHED KST
The King Street Tavern is located at 70 King Street, on the way north on Norfolk Street from Elm Grove/Kings Road going up to the Eldon Building of the University of Portsmouth. The historic pub is over 150 years old and nestles in a conservation area, on the westerly edge of the beautiful row of Georgian buildings.
We’ve been fans of the King Street Tavern for years, with its laid back feel and good food. In the last few months or so the KST under new management has had a huge refurbishment, from the garden through to the bar and the kitchen upstairs. As before the pub has a great community feel and is now also possibly one of the best BBQ spots in the city of Portsmouth too.

The new menu at King Street Tavern reflects on their love of BBQ and the kitchen is home to a charcoal oven and smoker, giving the different dishes a very special and locally unique flavour. On the day we visited we tried out the huge grilled steak, the massive rack of ribs basted in a succulent glaze, a hearty burger, sticky sweet chicken wings and a bowl of rich, warming chilli. Many of the dishes come with their own in-house coleslaw and their own recipe BBQ sauce that is something special and also has a kick.
KST also has an express menu for lunch bites, they have an epic Sunday roast and they will be launching their Christmas menu very soon. The pub is also continuing as a real local community hub, with loads of clubs, music and other meet ups happening throughout the week. Be sure to pop by.
As well as the fantastic line-up of food on the menu the bar is home to a wide variety of craft beers and ales on tap, all carefully selected. Beers are always being added to so every visit will have something new to try.
