The Sally Port Inn is home of the legendary mystery of Buster Crabb, the birthplace of James Bond, and a historical pub within the heart of Old Portsmouth.
Situated only a few yards from the sea wall, right in the midst of Old Portsmouth's High street, sits the Sally Port Inn - created in 1947 from a war damaged residence that dates back to the 1600s. The inn stands directly opposite the Cathedral of St. Thomas of Canterbury, close to the 'sally port' (the gate in the fortified sea wall), from which the hotel takes its name.
The Old High Street has, over the past 400 years, seen many historical events and great names such as Nelson and Keppel. To those interested in historical fact, a drink in the Sally Port Inn will be an experience to remember.
