Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent meal, friendly service, there is obviously a skilled chef! We were recommended the pub and will definitely recommend it to our local family and friends.

Middle of the road. No better, no worse. Good was acceptable. Staff were ok and bill was fine. No complaints but a 'half empty' experience. Empty feeling.

Cozy pub, very friendly staff and good food, we ordered a chicken tikka pizza and cheese + bacon burger, both were tasty, well cooked and a decent portion size. Good variety of menu choices and some good beer. Thankyou for a nice evening, will definitely...be back.More

We wanted to mark our wedding with a small celebration - the Tipi was ideal for this. It is a lovely space to mingle and chat. The food was excellent and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a relaxed, memorable...day. I would thoroughly recomend this for family occasions, or celebrations.More

We attended a party for friends who recently married. We were so impressed with the venue and organisation of the event. The team at the Porterhouse couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. We used the teepee which was most comfortable and there were rugs...and hot water bottles (yes, it was during Storm Antoni) which some guests really welcomed. The food was excellent especially the thin crispy and freshly cooked pizzas. Everyone had a great time and what more could you ask!More

The welcome, the room, and the decor were excellent. I stayed for 4 nights, for me, this was a little bit much. The pub is on a very busy junction with juggernauts going past often, even into the night, very noisy in the room, and...quite often made me jump and woke me up. If not lorries, then there were noisy boy racers or motorbikes. Clearly this is not the pubs fault, but 2 nights at most would be OK. The breakfast was OK as a continental, but again, a bit much for 4 mornings, bananas were over ripened, no butter 2 mornings, even though I had told staff, and mouldy crumpets one morning. Just little things that are important, that were missed. My bed was made daily, but no cleaning done, bin not emptied or loo roll replaced. I bought some butter and left it there in the fridge. I had tissues with me for the bathroom. I had one meal in the pub while I was there, which was very good. The kitchen for the rooms was stocked well with a variety of drinks, so could have a hot drink at any time. Generally, as I said, 1 or 2 nights at The Porterhouse would be fine. This was booked for me through work, so I had no idea about the place before hand.More

This is our second great experience eating at the Porterhouse in the last couple of weeks. I don't normally write a review for all the places we visit on our travels (unless it is really bad!), but this is an exception based on the quality...of the venue and food and exceptional standard of friendly interactive service by staff. We chose to eat in the 'Tipi' on a warm summer evening and staff were thoughtful to locate our table with comfortable ventilation. Highly recommend a visit to try it out for yourselves.More

The tipi was a lovely setting with fairy lights, blankets and a cosy hot water bottle to keep us snug. The food was delicious and they were happy to adapt the menu to all our fussy requirements. The service was great too. A lovely night...and we will definitely be back!More

Had been here before with a friend so thought I would try again with my family. Absolutely shocking food. Ordered the beef bourguignon which on the menu said served with creamy mash and greens, the only way to explain was a dollop of mash with...what looked like a tin of stewing steak on top with a large portion of red cabbage on the side that clearly looked like it was being used up from Christmas! Lots of mushrooms added to the mix but not one piece of beef just tiny streaks of steak. Absolutely vile. Will not ever recommend or return.More

Could not fault it from service to atmos to food, thumbs up all round. Good choice of wines and mains. Tbh starters not such good choice but chose bread with oil and vinegar from add ons to main as a starter and was great. Dined...in the teepee and was so good, great idea. The gravy on the venison sausages and mash was just divine, I would drive 100 miles for that alone! Pudding we shared and was just right size. I will be thinking about this meal for a long time!More

Week night visit to our local eatery - didn’t book, and chose a table which was not cleared, but although really busy, staff very quickly cleared the table and took our order. Shredded beef chilli was suitably spicy and very well seasoned with rice. Try...the gammon steak, which was absolutely lovely, freshly grilled pineapple brought out the flavours alongside a fresh medley of green vegetables - a delightful meal!More

I looked forward to the meal as the setting was nice in the tipi outside. The starters were nice despite the flatbreads being burnt but the main was possibly the worst meal I've ever had in a restaurant. I ordered the Stuffed Chicken with roast...new potatoes and seasonal veg. The stuffed chicken itself was nice but the roast new potatoes were disgusting, tasteless with a hint of plastic. The veg was rubbery and difficult to eat. I won't be going back.More
