Friendly, cheerful waitresses, what a treat! Great veggie food well presented and thought out. Mmm the hummus was well garlicky! I like that! Smashing secluded garden out the back.

Porters is a wonderful wine bar. My wife and I had a delicious lunch there. Excellent food very good wine and terrific service. All at a very reasonable price. The staff were extremely obliging and went out of their way to be helpful. Highly recommended.
