Booked as a last minute thing as was local to the area. Waitress was amazing told us all about bottomless grazing which was great and she was so friendly. From talks from another table it sounded like she was new which makes her a great asset to porters. Will 100% recommend to other family and friends that visit the area.

Quaint and quiet but with a great atmosphere. The staff are amazing, just enough attentive but not too much. The food is superb with a broad choice of local and U.K. sourced foods. Highly recommend.

Friendly, exquisite service from our waiter. Knowledgeable and polite. Ambience was lacking becasue there was only one other table, but the music was great and chilled.
Food was delicious, wine too. Location was perfect - almost like you were in a quaint city, rather than Southampton!

Will recommend and be back!

Great food and wine. Extremely good value for money. Great atmosphere. Service was excellent. Can not fault apart from the bread we had - sliced normal bread but we were a late booking so maybe ran out of decent bread.
Will definitely be going back

I think this place is a lovely addition to the Southampton offering, the food and wine is great, I would say they could do with more choices on wine, I personally would have loved a Rioja or a cotes du Rhône, but that is really personal taste.

A fantastic hidden Gem in Southampton! Not my first time to Porters however everytime I have been to Porters it feels like my first time as everyone is very welcoming, the atmosphere is wonderful and even though it has been busy in the venue you still can hear the waiters and are able to enjoy your time there! Thank you for a wonderful evening & I am sure I will be back soon x

Porter's was a bit different from our usual dinner choices but turned out to be a good one. The deli meat and cheese board was very good quality and the wine matched very well. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and we very much enjoyed the experience

Started off with good social distancing between tables, then at least 4-5 extra tables got bought out to accommodate the number of people in the restaurant. Food good, although would of been nice to have labels on everything so your knew what you were eating as cheeses and meats do look similar. Great wine although a restricted choice on the wine list due to pandemic. Reasonably priced, would return at some point but probably on a week day as may be less crowded.

This was our first visit to Porters. We were not sure what to expect, and took a while to understand the menu. It was explained to us and then understood.
We did not have starters, as the main course seemed enough.
It took over an hour before we received the food, which was very long. We did get an apology for this, but did not really understand why, since whilst busy, it was not full.
The quality of the food was good and a good variety - sliced meats of varied types along with variety of slides bread, biscuits and some salad/olives.
The door was open when we arrived and a little cold, they closed on request, though were not sure if it needed to stay open due to Covid.
