Replaced by Jamboree Foodfest & Bar, which is a radically different proposition! Please do not use reviews of this establishment as an indication of what you'll experience at Jamboree!

For £13 (taco shells with BBQ), I'd have expected better food quality (bearing in mind that within a 2 minute walk there is ASK, Pizza Express, Bar Burrito, Byron Burger & Zizzi's). It was warm and not well seasoned. The service however was excellent and a credit to the staff!

I went to The Portland Hotel, with my mother after purchasing a groupon deal for afternoon tea & spa usage for two. The afternoon tea was presented absolutely stunning, with a large pot of tea/coffee. There was plenty of everything and left us feeling full. I suffer from a nut allergy, after requesting no nut products, the staff catered for... More

Good food and service. Lots of youngsters at the time we visited. All of them seemed to be having a jolly good time and in absolutely no hurry to leave

We had a lovely meal at the Portland St restaurant which is in the Thistle Hotel. Although the menu was just ordinary pub fare, the quality was high. The steak was good quality and well cooked, and the chips were delicious. We had the sharing pots dessert, which is three bowls of your choice (mousse, whipped mascarpone, soft fudge etc).... More

The staff in the restaurant were superb and accommodated in every way they could! The breakfast and the dinner menu had lots to choose from and the food was really nice. My food was included in the price of my stay but thought the prices on the menu were reasonable, especially for the quality of food served.
