On visiting on a sunday with my 2 grandsons was deeply surprised ...yummy to say the least ... as if nothing had changed ... Decor has been freshened also... More

Heard the Lady Hamilton had re- opened so we went down yesterday to check it out bearing in mind we used it before they closed. Well what can I say - very very disappointed!!! The whole meal was frozen and microwaved - nothing on the plate was fresh!!! the only thing I would say, is that it was hot!! -... More

It isn't haute cuisine but it is good honest pub food and the staff are very friendly. It's almost next door to the Keppels Head Hotel a five minute walk from the Historic Dockyard and represents good value for money. The interior is furnished with booths , those on the left hand side as you walk in would be a... More

if your after a frozen dinner this is the place to go microwave meals not on my list to do , booths to small, looks like couple of girls got together to by a B&B, they have'nt got a clue, bar staff did'nt even know what a house wine was, very rushed service won't be going there again

I popped in to see what the lady Hamilton was like after it has been refinished. Instant first impression a lot of pictures and documents in frames. I liked the booths. London pride draught was a bit too warm and it's a cash only bar atm. I liked the bar, toilets albeit a bit garish are very clean......time will tell.

This newly opened B&B pub has all that someone needing overnight accommodation needs and the staff are exemplary and are so helpful. If you need accommodation in the cultural heart of the city then you could not do better than to stop here.

This Lady Hamilton closed suddenly in Nov 2015 It is empty and has been up for sale for 7 months at the moment there is no interest in the property.

The staff were very friendly and helpful I did have to wait a couple of minutes at the bar whilst the two staff passed on information to each other.The meal was well cooked and plenty of the two meats on offer As it is only a small pub they obviously can't have to many meats to choose from.

This is how an old sea dog like myself remembers pubs as they used to be, friendly, cheap beer, good atmosphere and no awful music. Plus I could watch the rugby in peace. A real treat.

As this review with only the title flagged up a red warning, I am now obliged to write something. My friend and I arrived and as my husband, who booked our hotel for us, had shown me the 'street view' on the computer, I picked up that we were staying at the Lady Hamilton! My friend asked me the name... More
