Really enjoyed our experience at the Pourhouse Restaurant! Stopped by for drinks and tapas before dinner and was very impressed.

Loved the design and feel of the establishment – service was great and their drinks were tasty (and original.)

My friends and I were in town for a concert and went there before the show. We had heard about it from the concierge at our hotel. It didn't disappoint. We had the mac and cheese to share as a starter and it was delicious. I agree with the other reviews that there is not a ton of choice but we made due and enjoyed the food we ordered. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and it was very tasty. My hubby had the burger and he enjoyed it as well. Overall it was a good experience and our server was friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back.

The menu is limited. The one steak on the menu, was not a great cut and came with just a steak on a plate! No sides, no garnish, nothing. Almost funny. Just a big slab of meat on the plate. And it came with french fries on a separate plate. $34. French fries.
My friends said cocktails were good, but I drink wine and the wine list by the glass was very small, with no Merlot or Malbec on it. I sent the first glass back and the second wasn't much better.
I heard such great things about this place and came away not super impressed.
The service was good though - long wait for food but she was very apologetic and gave us a discount.
I would say go for drinks not food - but it is a restaurant so you have to eat something.

From reading the reviews and viewing the menus I expected better quality food. However, I was a little disappointed with the updated menu we received that the only thing I fancied (in such a nice restaurant) was the burger, however, I was reminded that this was their signature burger so I expected great things. I was a bit disappointed as the burger was very ordinary so too were my husband's bangers & mash. We didn't opt for a pudding a there wasn't anything we fancied on there too.
On a positive note, it was a nice atmosphere, the tables and decor etc was very cosy and there was a jazz band playing so it would have been nice for just a drink. Maybe we just picked the wrong things on the menu as the restaurant was still busy for a Sunday night.
