Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had heard good reviews and went out of our way to go but were curtly told the restaurant did not open until 1:00PM - Kind of late, I would say!!

Was told by some people how good this place was. How badly mistaken they were. Food was borderline un edible . They must have tried to make up for the lack of taste with ridiculous portion sizes. Old fashioned menu Old fashioned decor No atmosphere Won't be back

A group of 5 of us were in the Portmor this weekend past. I hadn't been there for 15 years so it is a very different place now! Our booking was for 7.30 and you can tell it's a popular place because it was full. While the decor and layout is lovely, it isn't somewhere I would consider for a... More
