Had a mushroom pappardelle pasta from The Portland and it was the most delicious pasta that I have ever had, absolutely beautiful! The other two courses were amazing too.

We dined on a Sunday afternoon and were the only diners in the restaurant but service was very slow and we weren't offered any apology or explanation. The food was fine when it did arrive and was reasonably priced for a city centre restaurant. There was a good choice on the menu, everything from burgers, through to Asian food.

We had already booked a restaurant, so didnt dine, but had a great round booth in the bar area for drinks before heading out into town. Felt like a VIP!
