We were looking for a fun Irish Pub for a quick dinner and The Porterhouse did not disappoint. The duo - Lamb Shank and cutlet was fantastic.

Good food. Had to wait at bar - no problem with that! - for about 20 minutes but it was worth the wait.

The seafood chowder is ample and delicious. We enjoyed the red beer and the traditional Irish music. A very fun way to spend an evening.

Was greeted by friendly waitresses immediately upon entry. Waited about 15 minutes as quoted and it was worth the wait. Apps came out instantly and dinner followed as well. Great service and food!

The hotel concierge sent us to this place and it was just what we were looking for. Great Irish food, good service and for added pleasure a very talented Irishman with a guitar. It was just a wonderful easy night!

Recommended to dine at this gastropub and we were very glad we came. The service was great though the wait for the food was a bit long due to the number of diners. I must say the main course were great for all of us:...More

The restaurant is big, live music, steaks ok, traditional beers. We have been pushed out as soon as we finished the meal. Steaks were ok, nothing especially, prices too high I would not return

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.
