We also had the calamari and the mozzarella sticks and chipotle dip to start which were equally as good.... More

The restaurant's strap line is 'American Flavour, British Behaviour' - we chose this restaurant as the menu suited both of our dietary requirements.

I visited a little while ago with my family. The food was filling and tasted absolutely amazing! The staff including hannah were fabulous with my young child (although he knew how to get their attention by dropping plenty of cutlery they were very patient) we stayed for some music and felt very welcoming although we arrived with a young child...

An excellent chef who produces simple yet imaginary dishes. The lunch specials are excellent value at £8 and always different. The toilets are like something out of a 5 star hotel.

Me and my partner took both our mums out for lunch before we went back to Preston so we thought a quick lunch at the porterhouse would be a good shout, I'd never been there and they liked their last visit (my girlfriends mums partner joined us, so in total there were 5 of us) we got in just before...

I took my husband out for a celebratory meal. We hadn't booked so took a chance. We had to wait a while to be seated but tables were available. We waited in the bar which smelt of b.o. We'd looked online and seen that on a Tuesday they do an offer - every Tuesday and Thursday from 12-9.30pm it's 2... More

Although living in Shrewsbury we had yet to try Porterhouse so taking advantage of a voucher deal for burger, fries and a cocktail we decided to give it a try. The food was fine, nicely presented with ample portions. The cocktail was slightly disappointing and didn't have the oomph I was expecting. Service was pleasant and prompt. There was nothing...

Me and my wife went here on Saturday. Our table was ready straight away. The food here is amazing and the staff are friendly. We also tried out a cocktail and had the herseys chocolate cocktail. It was soo yummy. I do recommend that you book In advance. Thank you to our waitress Becky for giving us a good service.
