    As always I really enjoyed the quality of the cheeses, meats and accompaniments. Sadly, as we were under time constraints due to a private booking we could only just stay for the 2 hours before being asked to leave. Initially we were told we’d be able to finish our drinks outside or in the main restaurant, but this offer was rescinded when our 2 hour slot was finished - total lack on consistency. I was quite upset that despite asking for our water to be replenished 3 times it didn’t happen, and that we weren’t told that our final glass (served half an hour before our slot ended) would be our “final” drink. When we came to pay the bill at the time of leaving we weren’t allowed another top up, which is disappointing as we were tucked in a corner booth and often out of the staff’s eyeline. Although I have visited many times, it was the first time my friends had been. Their experience was tainted by inconsistent service - some of the other tables in the centre of the restaurant were given far more attention than our table, which meant that our glasses were empty more often than other people’s. Overall it was a pleasant experience though

    Never been to such a place before, but I’m so glad I did. Nice and quiet at 7pm, and the restaurant is clean and tidy and the decor is lovely. Food was excellent - I was in cheese heaven! Got to try some meats and cheeses that I’d never usually go for, and I loved it all. The service was fantastic too. Everyone was so friendly and happy to help, and they knew everything about what they were serving. 10/10 will return.

    We have visited Porters quite a few times now and always had a lovely experience. The staff are really friendly and the service is fantastic. The food is amazing, love the selection and you get plenty for your money. This time it was my birthday and I got a surprise cake from the staff! I frequently recommend this place to my friends and family. 10/10!

    Britney went above and beyond to make our evening special. She was so kind and attentive and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. All of our needs were catered for as I’m vegan and my partner was vegetarian. We had such a lovely time and will definitely be back in the future. The atmosphere was beautiful as the restaurant was decorated to a high standard. You could tell a lot of love and care went in to making the evening special. Thank you again! :) (give Britney a raise! She was running around making everyone feel welcome)

    Was a really lovely place, good choices of cheese meat and chutneys. For the price we paid I didn’t think there was enough bread and crackers for the amount of us or cheese and that was with an extra paid portion of bread. We did have a lovely night and the waitresses were very friendly

    My friends and I shared "The Group", a mixed platter of 8 cheeses, 8 meats and 4 chutneys. For the amount of food provided, particularly the bread and crackers which came with the platter, we felt this was extortionately overpriced (£100). We had to ask for more bread and crackers as there simply wasn't sufficient to go with the platter. By comparison, I recently had a 5 course mini gastro menu at another restaurant close by which was £35 per head. There was far more food by comparison, and far more culinary prep involved. Following our platter, we shared 2 desserts between the 4 of us, both of which were poor in quality and taste, neither of which we finished. Disappointed and definitely won't be returning, poor value for money.

    Hi This is a great venue close to city centre. Staff are good and the presentation of the platters are excellent. We had a sharing platter that was recommended. It was a great choice, really lovely selection of UK produce. I would say the down side is I am not sure it represents good value ? At 50 pounds per platter we actually finished the entirety but found that perhaps not quite enough for two. The ambience and decor is fun, it was weekend evening so noisy with large groups. However on the absolute plus side we were allocated a lovely window table overlooking the park by the window. The staff were really friendly and very efficient. However we had a theatre reservation and I do find the half hour table warning in a half full restaurant irritating. It’s best mentioned at the beginning with exact time. It seems totally unnecessary if the restaurant is not full not even close to full !! The quality of produce is excellent, the bread warmed.

    Lovely interior, food fine, staff friendly but had to wait quite a while to be served. Don't appreciate a surcharge/tip of £22 automatically added to our bill and when we asked why, the response was 'we have targets to reach'. Therefore we asked for the £22 to be removed and paid a lesser amount. Tips reflect the level of service etc you receive and it's not an automatic 10% to make a profit or to assume the service was great.

    Amazing! Myself and my friends went here for my birthday and the whole experience was great. Great service, the staff were always so attentive. Really good portion sizes so you get your moneys worth! We went at 6pm so was very quiet still, but the atmosphere was so lovely. They also brought me out a slice of yummy birthday cake with a candle which I thought was so sweet. Would definitely return ☺️

    Good was nice but staff were not overly attentive and didn’t describe what would be good pairings for food / wine etc as having been to a place like this before makes for the experience. Probably wouldn’t go again but was a nice meal.
