Went with a friend for a leisurely lunch. We were given the choice of where to sit by an efficient and polite staff member. We were not rushed to make our choices and the relaxed atmosphere boded well for our chatty catch up. We started by sharing a delicious hummous with warm breadsticks, then moved on to blackened fish of... More

We have frequently visited here as we love the chilled atmosphere and always a chance of seeing some live music! Great food with great choice of drinks. What's not to like!

Went to The PorterHouse for the first time on Saturday. Was very impressed with the staff and the lovely Strawberry Mojito I chose. Eggs/Ham Benedict was lovely but have to say when the tomato sauce was placed on the table was quite disappointed to see a small grubby plastic squeeze bottle instead of something a little classier. I also think... More

We had a wonderful breakfast for our family. There were 18 of us and they coped with our table without any quibble. The food was great and lovely flavour, good portion size. Very attentive staff too

Tom the front of house was just great and very helpful. Room - as predicted in the literature, noise from street is apparent however, didn't bother. If you wish to stay in town centre it's unavoidable so factor it in. The place is quaint and quirky. We would definitely stay again...

What a great place! They managed to fit us in at short notice on a busy Saturday night in their restaurant, and supplied us with complementary drinks whilst we waited for our table. We all enjoyed our food, despite leaving some, but the portions were huge! Definitely get what you pay for. It was delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit!

I had the blackened fish of the day which was perfectly cooked juicy marlin served with wilted spinach and baby potatoes with salsa and guacamole. My husband had beef cajun steak, onions and mushrooms Street style burrito with dips which he thoroughly enjoyed. He had coffee and I... More
