    We really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at Porters for the second year running. The food was once again perfect and the staff made us feel welcome. Camilla recommended a gin that was a real hit and we look forward to our next visit.

    Can’t thank the Porters staff enough for all their service. Having booked the meal for my fathers birthday the staff went above and beyond to make it feel special! Even I was surprised with what they had in store for him! The food was delicious and beyond stunning on arrival. The atmosphere was cosy and relaxed with little noise even as the restaurant became busier! The staff were kind, considerate and ensured we had everything we wanted/needed regularly. Don’t let the price put you off - it’s worth every penny!! I’ll definitely be coming back. Thanks again team!!

    A party of four on an early Saturday evening in August sitting outside (still Covid-conscious) - fresh but not cold (not hot either!) Drinks were good and reasonably priced but then we get to the food... We ordered a platter of meats and cheeses for four at £60 and we were not at all disappointed. From memory six choices of meat (from a range of a dozen or so) and eight cheeses (from a range of maybe twenty). All very tasty, all very different and ALL BRITISH! Plenty of breads and crackers, two choices of chutney and lots of little accoutrements (tomatoes, etc) Service was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable and excellent. Overall a five star experience. We have sat inside before Covid and the experience was similar - it's more buzzy inside. We will be back as a couple and with friends on a regular basis

    We had a wonderful experience at Porters. We were staying in Southampton for our honeymoon and a friend recommended that we go there - we were not disappointed! As soon as we entered, the staff were welcoming and friendly. They gave great advice on what to order (even telling us to order less!) and brought us a complimentary glass of Prosecco each. The food was fantastic - beautifully presented and really generous portion sizes. The meats and cheeses were absolutely delicious and the cocktails were fantastic. The staff were extremely attentive throughout our meal and afterwards they brought us a celebration dessert and another drink to say congratulations. I don’t think I’ve ever been made to feel so special in a restaurant!! Such a lovely experience and if we’re ever in Southampton again we’ll be sure to head here. Thank you so much to all the lovely staff, we had a wonderful evening and felt truly spoilt!
