The Walrus is a certified ‘nice pub’ with a buzzing roof garden on historical Ship Street. Would we class this quaint little road as being packed full of undeniable property porn? Absolutely, yes. Just off of the main seafront, this place has several great venues rolled into one. You’ve got the snug downstairs pub with its intimate booths and traditional boozer bar. You’ve got the sophisticated upstairs dining room where you can eat a tender pork belly and apple sauce roast in the company of some beautiful William Morris wallpaper. And you’ve got their casual two-story roof garden which should be at the top of your agenda if you’re rolling with a group. Always packed out on sunny days and during live sport events, it’s worth booking ahead if you want a big table at peak times, but they’ll always try to squeeze you in for a pint on the terrace. Cheers!
