Found the whole experience a delight, from the start of getting drinks, the bar staff were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. The restaurant staff were equally professional and concerned we were happy with everything. The food itself was devine and as all eight of us ordered different burgers and food intolerances were catered for with no problems. Definitely worth a visit!

First of all on behalf of my daughter who spent New Years Eve at The Porter House with her husband I have to say well done. She said the place was packed but they still maintained good service with good food not an easy thing to do when you are full. My recent experience on two visits has been very... More

Lively place, nice decor and staff, meal a little slow coming but it was busy. Meals were also a little over engineered but it's nice to see chefs give it a go and all was nicely presented. Worth a visit.

This is a lovely place to stay and can't recommend the location and bedrooms enough. Everything was spotless and the attention to detail in the bedrooms such as shortbread and a fridge stocked with essentials was great. We had a drink in the lively bar on the ground floor and there was an open mic and some very talented musicians.... More

The meal was good but very over priced for what it was. We had a seventy pound voucher which we were spending as it had been purchased as a birthday present and were told we had to spend all in one night or lose it which we felt unfair as we had only called in for a bite to eat... More

We popped into the Porterhouse after a spot of shopping in town. It was a chilly Sunday afternoon and we were greeted with a nice warm bar with friendly staff. We chose to eat at a bar table which were nicely laid out with comfy bar stools. The menu is extensive and tends to offer American style food with a... More
