On a busy Saturday, when Shrewsbury is packed with Christmas shoppers, to stop here for lunch was just what we needed. The staff are all super friendly, efficient and happy to chat with customers. We enjoyed the Christmas offering of mulled wine or spiced cider. The menu is very vegetarian friendly and there was lots to choose from. We will... More

Been wanting to visit here for many months, and last night I finally got the chance to go with my girlfriend. We ordered the Turkey Burger and the Mac n Cheese and both looked and tasted amazing!! We went on a Wednesday night and there was live music from a friend of mine which was very good. It was quite... More

We were wanting somewhere to get a quick meal ahead of a night at the theatre. Having left ourselves a little short of time we happened to pass PorterHouse and quickly decided to take a chance on it. We were seated quickly, though we weren't sure whether it was bar service or if we needed to be shown to a... More

We did enjoy our stay but had not realised just how old the building is. Very difficult to get up the narrow steep stairs with any luggage. Badly sloping floor in the room and passage may also be a problem for some people. There is no parking nearby, an NCP pay car park is down the bottom of the hill,... More

My husband and I visited for a Saturday evening meal out. The venue was packed and we did find the service slow to begin with...15 minutes to get a drink. However the food and drink when it arrived was lovely. Enjoyable evening.

The food is fresh and comes quickly from the kitchen,even on a Saturday night we didn't wait long. Service is very good and the staff all seem happy to be serving you,lots of smiles even when it's busy. The menu is good and you will always find something to suit your tastes. The ice cream dessert is stunning and you'll... More

I love coming here, it is one of my favourite places in shrewsbury to eat. The food is delicious and it's all in a superb atmosphere. The live music on a Sunday is a must and burger Monday is a bargain!

Eaten and drunk here many times since it became Porter House. All of them very satisfactory, apart from the tendency to try to overcharge you; the bill has been wrong three out of the last four occasions. The last time - two Fridays ago - the bar tender tried to charge me £52 for a £30 round. Upon me questioning... More

Walked into a warm and lively atmosphere. Good variety of drinks available which were reasonably priced. Free sample shots of cocktails are an excellent idea as we got to try something we wouldn't have usually ordered. The food was very tasty, I would recommend the scotch egg starter which is home made. The best part of the meal for me,... More
