Our experience at |Porky's was a real disappointment. The staff tried very hard to improve our experience, but the food preparation was extremely slow, and the ribs was basically burnt by the time they reached us. I think the restaurant has the potential to be a nice place to eat, but they need to improve their overall level of food preparation dramatically.

Very expensive for a trendy burger!! The sides are so expensive - £3.50 for a seriously insubstantial 'cup' of salad leaves!! Our mains arrived whilst we were still eating our starters and put down on the table - it was all rather rushed. Food was tasty but really not worth the £85 bill for the two of us...

Very good ribs, but the rest was pretty underwhelming. The chicken popcorn and the cod were just ok. The burger was dry and without flavor. The beers were not great either. I will come back, but only for the ribs.

The stuff at porkys was great but we were a bit disappointed with the food.. the baby shack ribs were very dry and not very meaty like I have eaten them in other restaurants. Also the burger we had was too well done and therefore very dry.

Good food, service was ok (not overly attentive even though it was really quiet), nice space for a local catch up.

This is the 3rd incarnation of a BBQ restaurant at this location the past 3 years or so, the food menu looked good (I love BBQ food) and I was really hoping they would have got it right this time. However, on arriving, I was disappointed to find that this restaurant had joined the ranks of so many other bars and restaurants in joining the craft beer revolution to the complete exclusion of all other beers. I've lost count of how many places I've walked out of because I can't get a 'normal' beer. I'm not particularly bothered, just a simple draft or bottled lager (Carling, Fosters, Corona, San Miguel, Estrella, Heineken (it's not like there aren't lots to choose from) or equivalent would be fine), but it appears these aren't sophisticated enough for a lot of places these days. The waitress did bring a couple of samples for me to try, but not surprisingly (as they were craft beers, duh!) I didn't like them at all. I did ask if I could pop over the road to a supermarket and bring a couple of beers in, but that clearly was too radical an option for consideration, so rather than losing out on a couple of beers, they lost out on 2 meals and probably a couple of glasses of wine, as we walked out at that point (which given the place was only 20% full at 8.00 on a Friday night seems more than a little short-sighted), so I can't make a judgement on the food, as we didn't have any, but when will bars and restaurants realise they are alienating so many customers with this craft beer snobbery?
