I found myself having to move back to Durham from downtown Toronto a few years ago. I had been spoiled downtown...almost too many places to choose from. In Durham, bars and pubs are sparse and the prices at many of them are high. I had actually been to the Piper once while I was still living downtown. I had found... More

I had lunch today with a couple of girlfriends at the Portly Piper. The place was packed even on a Wednesday afternoon which is a telltale sign. We all had wraps and salad, both were delicious. Glad to find a good local lunch establishment. I hear they have live entertainment on the weekend so will have to check it out.

we tend to eat here a lot because of the great service and portions of food for a good price. Always feel that other restaurants although have good food the bill is always high.

The Portly Piper is a very busy place. The food is great the portions are large. The beer prices are reasonable. You can save 20 bucks on dinner for two by coming here instead of one of the large restaurant chains. I haven't one bad thing to say about the Portly. They have live bands on the week end too!

We have been in many in many pubs and would rate this as one of the best. It is in a strip mall where we went to visit the British Isles Shoppe so decided to try it for lunch. There is plenty of parking and the pub large in terms of its seating capacity and is well maintained. The menu... More

I've tried this place several times hoping it will get better. It's ok, but nothing outstanding. Service is often spotty. Food is average. It's ok in a pinch

We have been going to the Portly for many years. Ownership changed a few years ago, which was a great improvement. Huge, varied menu to satisfy any tastes! Specials through the week, and the best wings in town! Great place to have dinner/drinks before going to Yuk Yuk's right next door. Have to get there early on Tuesdays (.59 cent... More

Very good food and service. For a pub style restaurant. Not a large menu but what they offer is well prepared

We have been going to the Portley for a few years now. We try different restaurants in the region, but always go back. They have the best and biggest wings in town. The staff are always cheerful and the managers always come over and say Hi and shake our hands. Reasonably priced, good food, good service. Highly recommend it.
