Went to the Portly Piper for the first time. Service was great even though it was Friday night and the place was very busy. Seated right away and our drink orders were taken quickly. The highlight was the food - excellent!! - great selection and very generous portions. Four different entrees were ordered and every one of them were great.... More

Excellent food, good service, a little crowded and tends at lunchtime to be noisy, but it is well worth putting up with this for the food.

Went for lunch food was great once again. Ordered tandoori chicken great flavours, and spinach, goat cheese, beet salad with chicken delicious. Chicken was tender and well marinated for taste. Service was slow but friendly. Place was full, not really into the seat yourself aspect but def will return!

Recommended to us from a family friend. The food was absolutely amazing! The service impeccable, we reserved a table just because we had a large group I would recommend it! Very busy spot.

The menu is quiet varied with lots of option to try. We keep trying something new as often as possible but tend to focus on our favorites. Tried the flat bread meat lovers entrée a few days ago. Great for sharing as me and my wife like to do these days. Gotta keep trying new stuff but the old favorites... More

While on holiday from England, UK we were recommended to try the wings at the Portly piper, and we were more than surprised how tasty they were with so many different sauces to choose from and never knew there was so much meat on a wing. There was also an extensive menu from snacks to fish, meat, pasta etc...many thanks... More

If you can't find something I this menu that you like something is wrong. For a pub style restaurant they have a huge and varied selection. I have never had a bad meal here and the portions are more than generous
