About Porky's BBQ Bankside
We’ll be dishing up meaty ribs, homemade BBQ sauce, juicy burgers, whole smoked chickens, and pulled pork that’s been cooked low and slow (for over 16 hours) in the smokers we imported from Oklahoma. there’ll be cold American (and local) craft beers on the bar, classic Tennessee tunes on the speakers and fun enough to rival Beale Street.

Porky's BBQ Bankside Ratings and Reviews
Unsure what to do for my birthday, my friend suggested we go to Porky's BBQ as she had also great recommendations about the restaurant. Coming across a deal on TimeOut London for the 'Unlimited feast', I did not hesitate to purchase such a great deal.
The staff at the Bankside branch were indeed welcoming and friendly, starting off our evening to a great start. After ordering the Unlimited feast I was indeed taken back by the quantity of food that was presented to me. The quality of food served was exceptional and thanks to the TimeOut offer we were also able to ask for me. The cocktails were an added bonus and complimented the meal.
I can honestly say, for someone who loves off food as much as me, I was satisfied beyond my hearts content! The flavours were just mesmerizing..... I would definitely recommend it
Really good food, great service. Reasonably priced and good beer. Staff friendly and nice to talk to especially as I was on my own.
Was quiet but was a Tuesday night so to be expected.
Looks like it could be a great night to go with friends and play some beer pong by the bar!
We had an amazing time at porky! Amazing, tasty food and fantastic selection of beers too! Really enjoyed the beer pong and the real 'feel good' vibe! Great value for the amount we had to eat and drink and will certainly be returning soon! Thank you for a great time porkys!
Really nice settings and surroundings and the feeling from the staff was very warming. They serve decent food at a reasonable price and the cocktail list and beers on offer was great. I would happily visit again! Great location if you want to be by the river as well with nice pubs in local area!
Walked into an office party playing beer pong including a lot of 'well refreshed' individuals at the bar. However we were there for pre-theatre food and the restaurant at the back was fairly quiet. The staff were clearly rushed off their feet but they bent over backwards to make us comfy. Orders taken quickly, food arrived in good time, tasty and decent size portions. Overall really good and would be a fun night out for a group too.
Wow, never had such a love affair with a mountain of meat! I have no idea where they source their chicken wings, but those have to be some monster chickens (try them and you'll understand). We tried sharing the platter for two and glad the server suggested getting a number of sides, coz we now have lunch and dinner for a couple of days and it would have been way to much meat. Looking forward to our next visit.
we went for my son's 14th birthday dinner, it was perfect for him as he loves american style restaurants. the food was pretty good, nothing to complain about and the service was outstanding, our waitress wrote nothing down but remembered the whole order including drinks! and not one mistake, so well done to her!
The staff were really accommodating for our large group, and even took in a birthday cake I had brought for my friend. They even brought the cake out and were sorting it out before I'd even asked which was great. Service was fantastic, the food was great as always, a good dinner out.
Four of us visited Porky's on a Friday evening around 7:30 as the start of our weekend in London. The atmosphere was really lively and quite loud around the beer pong tables. We had seats in the larger dining area and the sound levels were fine.
The food arrived quickly and was superb. We had a sharing platter for 3 between 4 of us, and there was absolutely loads of meat and there is no way we would have been able to manage a platter for 4. We also ordered a few sides during the meal to go along with it. These aren't hugely expensive and arrived very quickly, so you wouldn't necessarily need to over-order at the beginning.
We had cocktails to start, and beer with the meal, all great with a moderate but well chosen selection.
Overall a fabulous start to the weekend, and a fine example of meaty, smokey, BBQ deliciousness.
I was celebrating my birthday and me qualifying dentistry, so i decided to spend it with my friends at my favourite reataurant.
All of my friends loved the food as it was a dirst time for a few of them.
The staff were very accomodating and were very hepful as always.
A fantastic visit to this establishment which was for a birthday occasion. Great environment as far as decor, music and lighting were concerned. Staff were excellent; friendly, informative and gave us extra special attention with a lovely dessert treat!! The food was awesome, we had a sharing platter because we had never eaten here before. It was delicious and offered us the opportunity to try different cuts of BBQ meat. Would definitely visit again if I am near Bankside and would recommend this highly. Thank you.
Booked a table for 20:15
Got there at 20.00
Got taken to our table in the back as the front is a bit loud from people playing beer pong.
Ordered foot and within 10 mins had all our food and drinks
Quick nice service
Would suit small groups of people who are celebrating an event
This was a hilarious and honest restaurant experience for a group of hungry lads on a night out!
American BBQ foods are always a firm favourite with my group, and this place produces some very good food. The ambience is also fun, with everyone playing games, laughing, chatting etc. The ambience was friendly, and fun. The food was very good and was well priced. The service was also great - especially considering how busy it was on the night.
I would highly recommend this restaurant - also, I tried a few different things and all the food were great. I recommend you order a variety of items from the menu and share with your pals well. A truly fun experience.
When booking, we thought that it would be busy, but upon arrival it was near to empty, so we had invited the other half of our group to come join us. We combined the warm-up platter with the ultimate line-up It tasted amazing and was not at all insufficient for the four of us. For the price we paid we couldn't believe how much we'd gotten and what a great taste. When the meal had settled in our tummy, it was time for a game of beerpong, this suited us for sure.
