Visited here on a lunchtime, and had a terrific steak - tender, juicy and cooked exactly as I requested. Two minor quibbles. The lunchtime menu has only one size of steak (small), and I would have preferred more choice. Also the chips were rather undercooked...More

Came here with some friends and we all very much enjoyed the food. Good value if you go for the mid week offer (2 courses for £14.95 or 3 for £17.95). Steak cooked as requested and service good.

Porterhouse is not about variety. It's not about being all things to all people.
It's about doing something simple & doing it better than anyone else.
That something is Beef. 100% grass fed and naturally reared Beef.
