Lovely meal out

What a fantastic meal and night out. Our server/waitress "Anna" was amazing and really helpful!! We used the Groupon voucher, and were all relevantly surprised at the choice and how nice it was. Cocktails here are heavenly. Would recommend and go again!

I booked a table for my birthday meal with my family. The table was in the conservatory by the smoking area. The smoking area doors were fully opened so I asked to be moved but they said there were no other tables available and reluctantly said they would close the doors and replied that no one has ever complained about...

I have taken the time to speak to all of the staff who dealt with your table that evening to gain a better understanding of where it might have gone wrong. What does cause concern, is that... More

Immediately upon sitting down to our table with a view of the courtyard, our waitress, Becky, greeted us with a most wonderful smile and welcome to the Porter House. The menu was varied and being from America I decided on the Uncle Sam Burger. I have to say it was the best burger I had had in Britain.

I chose porterhouse to take my friend to celebrate her upcoming wedding. It was happy hour and tried three cocktails each which were amazing. The girl who made our cocktails was friendly and helpful. We were late for our table due to gossiping but we weren't pushed to go to it which was nice. I phoned day before to arrange... More
