The Dolphin Pub doesn’t open until noon. The booking paperwork states 11am until 11pm. It also states up to two people but you could use it for a group. Other than that it was a really good afternoon’s entertainment.

A brilliant way to see Portsmouth . The treasure hunt was superbly set out with clues for the whole family to solve. All in all a great a excellent experience

Good fun on a drizzly day in Portsmouth with the option to stop off for the odd beverage or two.

So lovely for a group family outing. Good to know a bit of history in a lovely simple way.

We found it very interesting. We learned things about the area that we hadn't known before
