Lovely, perfectly cooked steak and veg. Staff were lovely. Sides are quite expensive but a decent size for two but to much for just one person, which is the only reason I didn't give five stars. Def recommend tho

We visited The Porterhouse Restaurant in Winchester recently. The food,wine and service were all excellent. We had the Chateaubriand for 2 which was very good value for money.

Had the very reasonably priced set menu with mixed skewers to start, sirloin as a main, and baileys cheesecake for afters. All were excellent. Steak was perfectly tender and cooked to perfection (medium rare). Peppercorn sauce was one of the best I've tasted. Will be visiting again for sure.

Six of us ate at The Porterhouse for my husband's birthday. The service and the food were fantastic. I had rib eye steak, and I like it well done, so always a test of a good chef as to whether it arrives even edible - it simply melted in my mouth. Good recommendations from the waiter as to which sides... More

Haven't been here for more than a year but each time before it has been very good. This time the steak was even better. I had a sirloin and my wife had a ribeye, both medium and both absolutely fabulous. The steak doesn't need a sauce, but if you must, the peppercorn is very good.
