Although we live in Winchester, we hadn't been to The Porterhouse before. I must say that, having been underwhelmed by a number of other restaurants in Winchester, we were really impressed by this restaurant - and we were keen that it should be good as we were taking some friends out with us as a thank-you. The service was very polite and not at all pushy in any way; there was no sense of rush, we were able to take as long as we wanted. (Admittedly it was midday - on a Saturday - and not very busy but still...) And the food was, without exception excellent: the tiger prawns, the burgers, the chicken kebabs, the steaks, the chips, the sauce, the ice-creams (my wife was particularly delighted with these) and the coffee. Really very enjoyable. If I have one criticism, it would be that I found the decor a bit over-formal - but that's the style of the restaurant. We will go again!
