We had a lovely meal at the Portland St restaurant which is in the Thistle Hotel. Although the menu was just ordinary pub fare, the quality was high. The steak was good quality and well cooked, and the chips were delicious. We had the sharing pots dessert, which is three bowls of your choice (mousse, whipped mascarpone, soft fudge etc).... More

The staff in the restaurant were superb and accommodated in every way they could! The breakfast and the dinner menu had lots to choose from and the food was really nice. My food was included in the price of my stay but thought the prices on the menu were reasonable, especially for the quality of food served.

We had a great meal @ the Portland street restaurant. It was our 10th Anniversary. Really good atmosphere. Prices were very reasonable. Staff were very attentive (especially Marcus the restaurant manager). Will definitely return to the Portland in the coming weeks. Thanks for making it a memorable evening....

I put some words about the meal in the write up on the hotel. I was quite impressed with my supper that I had, I did find something not right and the management team took immediate action to put it right and their response was well worthy of great praise. The team that work there are most pleasant and helpful,... More
