Portland opened in 2015 and received a Michelin star the same year - which we have retained to this day. We try to offer the best contemporary example of fine dining in London – the finest produce we can find cooked with precision and a high level of technique led by our executive chef Stuart Andrew and head chef Chris Bassett and his team.

We offer a la carte and also a Tasting Menu at lunch and dinner.

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland. Our main wine list aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists. Our Single Bottle List contains around 100 bins of some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers.

Apart from the main restaurant, we hope that our private room and its offer of secluded and separate dining is just the thing for special family events or business meetings.

    Celebrated a birthday lunch here and the service and food was incredible! Loved the relaxed ambience and being able to watch the kitchen at work (surprisingly quiet given how bustling it was). The raspberry pisco sour I had as an aperitif was the best I've tried. I had the hoggett as a main, which was wonderfully juicy and tender, my white asparagus starter had me mopping up the sauce with bread. And THAT bread - not often I rave about restaurant bread but the crust on it was sublime. The bitter chocolate tart was my favourite course. My partner loved his pork belly starter and truffled chicken main, and couldn't stop raving about the rhubarb granita. The service really made the experience though - friendly, and prompt without being intrusive or pushy. All the staff were lovely. I shall definitely return!

    Absolutely delectable. For many Michelin-type restaurants the dessert can sometimes be an afterthought, but at Portland the final course was just as good (I had the dark chocolate tart with white asparagus ice cream). Decor was unpretentious, which is a bonus, and the service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return!

    This is a spectacular restaurant giving you the flavors and high quality cooking you can expect from the best of London restaurants. The hogget, chicken (yes....even the chicken), and the rhubarb dessert floored me. Just a wonderful restaurant for anyone that wants local British ingredients and elevated French techniques, all while tasting amazing.

    My daughter had been the restaurant 2 weeks been and suggested it. The dinner was to celebrate a triple milestone birthdays for my husband and daughters. We were in the private room and Bonnie made us feel at home right away. The initial snacks were very nice as was the whole meal. I particularly enjoyed the tart tartin and the chocolates at the end. We had the feasting menu of the beef wellington and l wanted my beef a little more well done which they happily obliged. The beef came back and was still succulent and juicy! It was cooked perfectly! We also received a little gift of Portland honey which was a nice touch. All in all it was a memorable evening to celebrate the occasions. Also, thanks to Bonnie, Hugo and the team at Portland. We will return again!

    I had to choose one London restaurant for my month here, also a birthday meal and I didn't hesitate for a second.. this place is exceptional.. we had a warm welcome..fantastic friendly.. and dare I say it..rather hunky service.. having worked in the wine trade the wines are very important for me..we had an exceptional selection, fitting in my demanding palate and specific budget. The food was excellent as always, innovative combinations, delicious bites, without fuss and high quality.. what an absolute treat.. thank you Portland.. I'll be back..

    I called beforehand to ask for a secluded table - if there was one - and they did the best they could ensuring that we only had one table next to ours. Very professional and corteous staff. I was especially impressed with the sommelier who gave us great advice on a decently priced bottle of Bordeaux.

    Lovely restaurant with an imaginative and confident menu. Small (1 floor of c.20 table) hence intimate. Absolutely not pretentious despite a high quality menu. Seasonal ingredients, fresh, british and distinctive. Staff very attentive. Portions are appropriately sized. We took the tasting menu and left with the feeling we had tried many of their best dishes yet not overstuffed ourselves. I will remember most fondly the crab in a macaron. Tasting menu included: gaspacho consomme, welcome snacks*, bread with hay infused sauce*, crab ravioli, Somerset saxon chicken*, portland hogget, Yorkshire rhubarb*. (* dishes that were particularly memorable). The menu impressed particularly in the balance of flavours. A prime example is the Yorkshire rhubarb which mixes the acidity of rhubarb with the sweetness and cold of a vanilla pod and a gentle addition of ginger all appearing on the palate without compromising the pleasure of the either flavours. I particularly enjoyed their use of morels, almonds and courgettes. Would happily return.

    This is my third visit to Portland and that alone should indicate what I think of this restaurant. Once again, the service was friendly, attentive and catered for all our needs. The set lunch had a fantastic variety which isn’t always the case at a Michelin starred establishment. The food was presented wonderfully and the flavour combinations were delightful. I’m so pleased the hollandaise continues to be a part of the dining experience as it is sensational. Another wonderful lunch was had, many thanks to everyone involved.

    The two of us had the tasting menu with pairing wine and Krug as a birthday celebration. What is immediate striking is how unpretentious the restaurant is. Everything is focused on the food and service, which cannot be faulted. The pairing wines hit the spot if not spectacular in the difference they made. One that does stand out is the pairing with the Yorkshire Rhubarb which was utterly brilliant. A meal to restore one’s faith in the future of honest fine dining without the frills.
