    Beer choice is pretty good .. but starting to get expensive..£6:20 for some. Pizza..we had anchovies and mushroom.. wasn't particularly great. Base was a bit too thin and lacked flavour. Toppings...we could only taste the mushroom, the fish(which is usually salty) was tasteless.

    Staff are really hard to get hold of and when we eventually ordered drinks we waited 20 minutes but still nothing arrived. Stopped another member of staff and asked where the drinks were - nothing had been put through so we had to order again. And then it turned out we had the last bottle of rioja so couldn't order more. Asked three times to pay and nearly walked out without doing so just to make them come to the table. Sooooo disappointing as the venue was lovely and when the pizza arrived, it was tasty. Lights came on at 10pm and we were kicked out.

    Overall experience was good. Slight confusion as large board outside says wait here and nobody comes so you need to go in. Then there is a sign saying 'Order here' but they then come to your table. Server very nice and engaging, however everyone needs to smile as they seem very stressed Definitely go back again as atmospheric, food and beers good.

    Table booked for 5pm was found to be unsuitable for disabled group member as the seating was high stools, and alternative table was only available until 6.30pm. By 5.30pm we had still not been able to place our drinks order, let alone food and had to go looking for a member of staff. Just about managed to finish our meal before the deadline and vacated the table to another table outside. After 30 mins we were asked to vacate that table also and there were no others available so we had to leave. I was not given a choice of table type when booking on line and was therefore very disappointed with the outcome. I have dined at The Port on several previous occasions without issue, but will now think twice about returning.

    Love this place, food and drink is incredible, and great value. Only thing that let it down was the very slow service, over 30 mins waiting for our drinks last night, maybe due to staff shortages and a busy Friday evening.
