This is a wonderful quirky little hotel with the advantage of a lovely bar and restaurant on site. Attention to detail was top class and little extras like fresh milk in room and home baked goodies on arrival. The MOST comfortable beds and lovely friendly staff! One bit of feedback to offer..breakfast was great for the carnivores in our group... More

We decided to have our regular "girlie" meal out and catch up at the Porterhouse last night. Monday night is Burger night and we all had the Southern Fried Chicken burger. Fabulous! Excellent food and great friendly service. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and bar too. Only one disappointment....I was told the dessert I wanted (Boston Tea Party) was not... More

Returning to Shrewsbury we asked for recommendation for lunch and were directed to Porthouse. What can I say, we wanted a light lunch (foodwise), and were delighted when we selected their £8 lunchtime deal, great value for money, pleasant, efficient service. The cocktails we also consumed on a hot sunny day were sublime. Handsome, delightful waiters were considered an extra.....................would... More

Been here a couple of times now and have loved it every time, has a good atmosphere a nice range of age groups, and good cocktails and food. Celebrated my 18th with a couple of friends on the burger Monday, and you could not fault the food it was amazing and as good as it looks in the photos. The... More

Booked a table for a Thursday evening for a friend's birthday. We wanted an evening of cocktails and food. The restaurant wasn't busy as there was only a handful of tables occupied. We all ordered a cocktail and a burger from the menu. The cocktail we ordered looked very sad and not as good as others we had in the... More

We regularly dine here on a Monday night. For £10 you can get a burger and a pint or glass of wine. The burgers have a truly homemade feel about them. All the accompaniments are just as they should be. Home made ketchup, and an option of sweet potato fries. All in all a great way to start the week.... More

A fantastic evening with a couple of friends. Great cocktails and excellent, friendly service. I have very high expectations and standards when it comes to burgers! Homemade, 100% meat, fries and relish- and that's what you get here! Excellent in every way!

Food was also excellent with a wide variety of dishes ordered by the group - every one a winner ! Only disappointment was the Knickerbocker Glory - £5 for... More

This place is great!! I've been to Porterhouse so many times and I really cannot fault it, I can't stop coming back. My favourite is their steak night on a Wednesday, where you can get two steaks and a bottle of wine for £40, amazing!! Their cocktails are brilliant as well, with so many yummy ones to chose from.
