About The Portland Hotel and Rock Bar

The Portland is a large public house on Portland Road in Hove, comprising 3 bars:

The Front Bar
Tends towards the regular, slightly more mature, customer.  Fitted with a jukebox, and also equipped with plasma screen for sports coverage.

The Rock Bar
Enter through the front door and walk straight ahead – you’re now in ‘The Rock Bar’.  A large bar with two pool tables, darts (not music nights) and a fruit machine.  Fitted with plenty of seating, including some great big sofas.  During the day it can be a bit quiet in here, but come the evening things liven up and if there’s live music you can expect it to be pretty busy!

The Function Room
We have a small function room, max capacity 70.  With it’s own fully stocked bar and dance floor this could be the ideal place for a private party, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or small wedding reception. 
Catering can also be arranged.

The Portland also has rooms to rent
We have a number of rooms, sleeping from 2 to 6 people.
Please call us to discuss your requirements on 01273 383840.
