3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Had a meal with friends this bank holiday, ordered our food and did wait quite a long time for the food to arrive despite it not being particularly busy. Food was great, sweet potato fries were so tasty! Asked for the bill twice and no one came, could easily have walked out and no one would have been any wiser.... More

Recommended by local veggie & vegan group, this place exceeded expectations. The menu offers really creative vegetarian/vegan meals which I am sure would also appeal to meat eaters alike. Took my son we both had the beetroot, walnut &courgette burger served with hand cut chips and salad, very generous portions which only just left us with enough room to try... More

Visited porter house twice. I visited yesterday for a friend's birthday. I ordered the bartender surprise, the bartender was friendly, asked what I liked and made the best cocktail I've ever drunk. Nice atmosphere.

The restaurant was beautiful and very quirky, the food was amazing but took a while to come out- which to me shows that it's more likely to be freshly cooked. The staff were pleasant but a little bit scatty. We asked for the right bill 3 times, but the staff handled it quite well. Would definitely come again.

Another enjoyable meal at Porterhouse, not quite as esoteric as it was when Mad Jack's. Efficient friendly service, good food although the chips could have been better.

I was skeptical at first about going to a steak house for a meal however the restaurant had been strongly recommended by a close friend following the release of the new menu so I decided to give it a shot. It can get pretty busy at times between both the bar and the dining areas yet despite that all the... More

This was my first visit and I've got to say the food was amazing. I had steak and fries followed by ice-cream (not on the menu but they gladly brought us some). Lovely atmosphere. I will be back. Thank you.

Love this place. Cocktails made to perfection by diligent staff who clearly are experienced. We sat in the conservatory. Service was prompt to offer menus although there was a wait for the food which we were advised of prior to ordering so didn't mind. The black and blue salad was amazing and there was so much I couldn't manage anything... More

Ate here last weekend (you are strongly advised to book to avoid disappointment!) after it was recommended to us by our hosts at the Darwin Townhouse. What a fantastic experience! I had 2 pints of Charlie Weeks IPA which was a superb pint. My starter of whitebait and scampi came in 2 separate bowls and would easily have been enough... More

Booked table for 7.30pm At 8.30pm was begging someone to take our order. At 9.40pm I was served with an over cooked bowl of Pasta served in a most dreadful tomato slop which was unedible. The waitress asked if everything was alright, I said no. She said 'Well you know what this industry is like when it's busy !' No... More
