It was my third or fourth visit since it opened and each meal has been excellent. The staff also need to complemented as they work so hard in an extremely busy environment. They are attentive, alert and always pleasant.

Went twice here now and both times it was very good. I loved the Chicken Wings - very tender and a good spice to it, but again not overly hot. Also the Steak Sandwich is very good - have it every time I come here....More

Sorry, not sure. I would also suggest checking the website; maybe there is an email option to contact someone at the restaurant.

We opened "The Porterhouse Gastropub" in the height of the recession in December 2011, year on year business has continued to grow. We pride ourselves in serving good pub grub accompanied with live music. We have a full bar, which is known to be a lively spot on the weekends. We offer live music 7 nights a week - all year round. If you are looking for a quiet fine dining meal in a restaurant environment, we aren't the place for you.
