The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rude owner/manager.
Can't even bother to reply question or explanations.
No respect or customers skills.

5 of us visiting Sydney just happened to come by the Porterhouse so we decided to give it a try. We certainly made the right decision. Helpful staff, great athmosphere, quality food and most of all good value. If you like fish, try the seafood platter, the steaks are sumptious. A must visit. Returning today for our evening meal. You cant beat the Irish .

Always make point of stopping into the local Irish pub on our travels. Stopped in mid day so it was quiet, the bartender was friendly, knew we were "Yankees" as soon as we ordered. Nice selection of beer and the food was wonderful. If we had more time would have went back again.

This is a nice Irish pub and, from the accents around us, popular with the Irish around here. It is also dog friendly judging by the bowl of doggie biccies (I am sure it was not food that anyone left!) and water bowl and the friendly dogs around the place. The Guinness tasted better than we get in UK but never as wonderful as that in Ireland. But who cares? It was pleasant and welcoming as you expect from the Irish.

This cosy, traditional pub is a great place to eat delicious and reasonably priced home made food. Relaxed, friendly staff serving excellent Guinness. A warm and welcoming haven to meet up with friends!

Really enjoyed fish & chips & 4 in 1 here! It is definitely worth a visit for any irish missing a decent homely meal with a decent curry sauce!

Of all the eateries I’ve entered since visiting Sydney, this by far had the best food. Ordered a burger and fries that was absolutely fresh and delicious! My daughter ordered a chicken parmigiana which too was surprisingly well done for an Irish Pub. Service was great with friendly bartenders and wait staff. Good vibe, families with little ones enjoying themselves and grandpas having drinks with their mates. Made for a relaxing experience. Try it!

Wow what a great pub! Great atmosphere, staff were friendly and accommodating. So much cool stuff to look at while waiting for your meal, which was super fast and bloody delicious (Wednesday night $14 schnitzel) Kilkenny poured perfectly too. Topped off with the best sticky date pudding I’ve had in a LONG time.

I was put up in a motel a short walk away for work so thought I would take a punt with this place instead of Uber eats or something,OMFG I am so glad I did! Great end to a busy day, I Will be back for sure!
