Thank you so much for making our meal enjoyable. I have a tomato allergy, which makes eating out difficult. The staff put me at ease and the chef came over to let me know what was in the food I was eating. Thank you again.

Lovely food just not enough for £16 for a Sunday lunch. Twitter video from Porterhouse showed a huge pork shank and great big folds of beef yet the real thing was a let down. I got the beef my wife got the lamb and both portions of meat were paltry and the veg was conspicuous in its absence. I mentioned to the head waiter that the plate looked nothing like the video they'd posted and to be fair he sent out some more meat on a side plate as he did for at least 2 other guests who were also disappointed. He explained that they'd run out of the usual cut and were using wagyu beef cuts hence the size but that's not the punters fault and to penalise us for them not ordering enough beef by serving paltry portions is not right. That doesn't explain why there was next to no veg though. Overall the food was delicious and we happily paid but I felt a bit cheated as I left still hungry and I'd been looking forward to visiting for a long time. Maybe I'll go for a steak next time.

Service slow and meal cool when arrived. Sorted out quickly and complimentary coffee as an apology but several other diners also had issues -
Shame as Food delicious when hot!

The food was excellent, as always. When we were sat at our table the lunch time rush was just subsiding, so the restaurant was relaxed and fairly quiet.

The man that greeted us and sat us at our table, did a brilliant job and was thoroughly polite and professional throughout our stay. Well done.

Food was good, felt a bit quiet but it was a Monday lunchtime. This changed when a family with 4 children under 5 arrived. Service was good, the waiter/tress was pleasant and willing. Food very good would certainly recommend both the Caesar salad and Rare Beef salads. Overall we had a pleasant experience, if not great.

Excellent food, service and wine list. Only slightly disappointing aspect was the other clientele with small children/babies who seemed to be more interested in the contents of their wine bottles than seeing to their children. Clearly nothing that Porterhouse could do anything about, so no loss of stars for that.

Service was excellent. Staff very attentive. Food was delicious and the house wine amazing. We went with friends who are very regular visitors to both the grill and saltwater fish company. We lived it. The ambience was really relaxing which made the visit very pleasurable. We shall definitely return. Top notch. Thanks.

Overall the service was very good and the food we had was excellent, I ordered heart of rump with a side of steamed veg, then cheese, crackers and grapes to finish. The main meal was beautiful and the steak was cooked to perfection. The cheese, crackers and grapes finished off the meal perfectly. We had the house red with the meal and it was very good indeed. I would recommend Porterhouse to friends and family and would be happy to visit again for special occasions.

Great drinks selection. Fantastic food. Only issue is the price! Super expensive. A glass of Prosecco at £8 when you can buy a whole bottle of the same Prosecco for £11 is steep. In total, a few nibbles and a few glasses cost us £60. Somewhere in the region of £30-40 would be a lot more realistic and reasonable. By the lack of people there, I’m sure it’s the cost that is putting customers off. Saying that, the food is so good that i’d be moderately happy to have my eye balls torn out once more.

I dined recently with my 2 sons for their 14th birthday. It seemed that every interaction with staff took longer than it should have, this was from the moment we arrived to be seated, to being asked for drinks then waiting for our meals. While I believe the meals were reasonably priced the drinks certainly weren’t. I purchased 2 cokes which arrived in the tiniest of glasses priced at £2.45 each, I think you need to consider the size of these glasses. We were each presented with a steak to be advised that fries and sauces were on their way, after 3 staff members repeating the same line to us it took nearly 5 minutes for them to arrive. When the bill arrived it showed a 10% service charge which to his credit the waiter said he could remove, however, at that time you feel so much under pressure and not wanting to look ungrateful or a cheap skate I allowed the charge but believe this should not be on the bill and it should be for the customer to choose wether a tip should be left and at what level.

The food and the menu choices, including Saltwater Fish, were excellent. The service was OK, but the staff seemed leaderless and we had to ask them to take our initial food order after being at the table for 30 minutes and subsequently our dessert order.
They need a good maitre d’ to organise the staff.
