    Quite disappointing meal out for my wife’s birthday. We had heard rave reviews but the reality was different. My wife ordered a filet well done (I know but that’s the way she has it) and it was medium at best so was returned, burgers were very good but my sirloin was a bit ropey although cooked well (medium rare). Overall a pricey establishment for a midweek meal. We will return at done point for the Sunday Roast just to try it. Staff were polite and attentive

    We had a very warm welcome. The staff were efficient and friendly.Our waiter Ellis could not have been more attentive. It was my husband's birthday treat and they supplied a birthday dessert on the house, a lovely gesture. The starters were lovely my son had two. The steaks were amazing cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant and it is worth every penny.

    Our meal at porters was amazing. The food was some of the best we’ve had at a restaurant. Service was amazing, it was our anniversary and the staff couldn’t of treated us better. Our waiter Liam was great too, so friendly and knowledgeable about the different steaks.

    There was a very loud table behind us however they left shortly after we arrived so wasn’t a major issue and haven't had that before at Porters. Camilla, Liam and the other staff were lovely and accommodating, the food was excellent and well priced. The oysters starter was particularly good, as was all of the steak, which was cooked perfectly, to request.

    Was initially disappointed as had thought it was always a steak and burger restaurant only to find it’s Sunday roasts only on a Sunday. You get a large plate of reasonable quality Sunday roast at an ok price. We quite enjoyed although not exactly fine dining. The bill including a bottle of wine and service for 6 was 220. Music was far too loud and had to ask it to be turned down so we could hear each other speak. Why restaurants do this I have no idea. Even after they turned it down which was much better than before it was still quite painfully loud for us. Have given it a quite good 4 stars though as we quite enjoyed the meal for what it was and the waitress was nice.

    The restaurant was very nice and clean and the atmosphere was lovely. The staff were friendly and courteous. I don’t feel the menu had a massive selection of starters. Also it was very pricey and I did not feel particularly good value for money.

    What a lovely place to spend a birthday evening. Quiet and fantastic (but busy) front of house staff. Food was delicious but the only thing that I would like to see improve are the steak sauces. Béarnaise was just a butter sauce and peppercorn was too runny and not peppery enough but that is the only issue. Will definitely be back!

    Excellent service and delicious food in a very pleasant environment. Generous portions and steaks cooked to perfection. Pork cheek, beef croquettes and meatballs as starters were equally as good. Unfortunately we were so full we didn’t have room for desserts, but when the staff kindly brought out a birthday treat for me we managed to find a space for that. A lovely gesture which was much appreciated. We would perhaps say that the drinks were slightly expensive, but it was a special occasion and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you Porters

    Our waiter Liam was amazing and helped us find suitable lactose free options on the menu. Obviously the steaks are superb but the wine, sides and sauces are also top notch. Shame I had no space left for dessert.

    Faultless service,quick and efficient,bruschetta starter was lovely.Our waiter recommended a wine to accompany my ribeye steak and it matched perfectly👍Both my and my wife's steaks were cooked exactly how we wanted them and were up there with the best we've tasted..as for the chips....they WERE the best either of us had ever had👌would definitely recommend Porters and look forward to visiting again.

    Very nice place, much more spacious than expected. Very good service and excellent steaks. Having a loudspeaker over our heads it was a bit too noisy to have a conversation so we asked if it could be turned down a little. This was promptly done and we could happily chat along. Really enjoyed all the food and the wine!

    Sadly disappointed this visit. The occasion was my Sons 18th and having been here before we were really looking forward to a special meal. Unfortunately the restaurant was cold, I did ask for the heating to be turned up, but the staff said there had been issues with the heating. When we were seated we were informed that the Dry Aged Steak cabinet was out of order and being repaired so we were not able to select these steaks, which was our main reason for choosing here. Then we were also informed that there were only 2 Fillet steaks available and to choose them quick if we wanted to secure them before other dinners. Our meals were served and very quickly the food became on the luke warm side due to ambient temp and the Tomahawk steak wasn't great either. We didn't complain as the two ladies serving were doing their best and obviously couldn't fix heating or fridge. Overall sadly disappointed.

    This was my second visit, having previously tried the bottomless brunch, and it didn’t disappoint. Starters were amazing; bruschetta and arancini. We had steaks for our main course - ribeye and fillet and both were delicious. The staff here are wonderful, really cheerful and friendly. Nice setting too.
