Went for Sunday lunch on Father's day but because of work commitments we had to book at 3 o'clock.
I normally don't like booking this late as there is nothing worse than the having the staff cleaning up around you while your still on desert. We had a room upstairs out of the way and the main course was beautiful. Vegetables and gravy boats were endless.The desert was a problem. Because we were late they had run out of some deserts but the very friendly waitress said we could pick a desert from the normal evening menu.
My family had a very enjoyable time at Porro and would recommend them to all.

Thank you so much for choosing Porro to celebrate Fathers Day.

Sorry to hear about the desserts, all of our desserts our homemade here at Porro so we make them on the day and sometimes they are more popular than we anticipate and we do run out occasionally!

However I am glad to here you had a good time.

See you soon and thank you for a lovely review.

Literally the.best.roast.
Ever
2 courses £15 our starter of Arancini was perfect and as for the roast, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a roast dinner out so much! Chicken, vegetables and cauliflower cheese were delicious and plentiful (actually too much! )
Latte after was also lovely.
Also a shout out to our waitress and all the staff we experienced here who were SO friendly, calm and attentive. They really are a asset to this restaurant we'll be back when we're in the area !

Was taken as a surprise for Fathers Day. Despite being an Italian we went for Sunday lunch which was fabulous. The food was very tasty and the portions more than adequate. The cauliflower cheese was spot on and service was great.

Really blown over with the quality of food here. Excellent choice on the standard menu and the specials (which my girlfriend & I had) offered further choice.
