Gosport Tavern is an locally owned bar/pub with varied food offerings. We hadn't been in several years (before they tried to open the grocery store beside the restaurant). COVID protocol is followed very well. I never realized how large the location is until all the tables were moved/taken out. We started with the fried pickles. They were so good, they didn't even last long enough for me to remember to take a picture. My wife ordered the cheeseburger with a side of the house made hush puppies. She mistakenly ordered it medium-well against the suggestion of the server. It was dry and tasteless. The hush puppies were delicious and slightly sweet paired with melted butter. I ordered the truffle chicken sandwich with a side of house chips. The chicken comes topped with drunken mushrooms and truffle oil. I could've eaten an entire bowl of the fungi. The house chips left a great deal to be desired. The dessert offerings looked great, but we were both full. Do not forget to factor in the insanely high Portsmouth City taxes on dining/food services. Added almost ~$10 to our bill.
Chili Thai wings could have been spicier, but they were cooked to perfection. Dill salmon was great. Service was perfect.
Had a good dinner. Sunday is live Jazz night. Very good but a bit loud for the small room size.
The Man About Towne was a delicious drink! I had the truffle chicken which was super tasty which could have had more mushrooms, and the hush puppies were bland and oddly wheat flour? But they are correct about the Mac and cheese, that was awesome.
The food was really good and the company I was with amazing, but our server was a bit forgetful (including forgetting two meals entirely). Would definitely order to go next time.
