This was the place to go, no great need to say more. We were very disappointed (not for the first time either). There seems to be this bent on going for the highest margin food hinged around beef burgers. Quality was poor, will note be going back for some time.

Ace staff. This blonde haired beauty popped over to our table full of life. I hear she's off soon, hope not too soon as I'd love to see her again. Made me and my friends feel so welcome and even sang happy birthday to me - what a voice! Will be back for the next birthday, if not before! Sexy... More

We haven't eaten here for several month, and unfortunately, this evening's meal was a huge disappointment. Our shared starter of nachos was tasty, but didn't have the generous lashings of cheese we got on a previous visit - the underneath pile of nachos was just plain, dry nachos (maybe just as well, for the sake of our arteries). My husband's... More

Had a lovely meal here on a Monday night not very busy but still lovely had nachos to share for starters and they were huge 2 could've shared it as a main, mains were really good too, I had a nice cocktail but they're knowledge of their beers wasn't the best, have been before and would come again

Lovely decor in this restaurant, and have been before, but after today won't return. We walked in without booking and asked for a table. Good start! Drinks orders were taken and were delivered around 15 minutes later which is not ideal with young kids in the party. We were not offered a children's menu and only saw one when someone... More

The choice of cocktails and drinks is great. The 1* missing is due to the cost of food. I felt that although the food was lovely it seemed a bit over priced especially since 2 of my friends were told they were out of stock of something for their meals. However this was replaced by something else. But you don't... More

Went in for dinner this week, the menu isn't as exciting as the last menu and the food was bland. Really disappointed as usually think the food is great. Also Cocktail happy hour is very confusing, ensure you only pick from the options on the back not in the main menu! Seems to have lost its style and direction -... More

Called in at Porterhouse for lunch yesterday, I had visited before but just for drinks, my girlfriend and her friend have both eaten here several times before though and each time have never been disappointed. I had the pulled pork burger which was incredible, I told the waitress 'Becky' that this was the nicest pork burger I think i've had... More
