    The Porterhouse combines the sleek design and stylish tones of a bar with the friendly service and welcoming atmosphere of a pub. Live music every Wednesday through to Saturday draws large crowds. Read more

    Live band on the weekends and great atmosphere. Makes for a good place to go out if you don't feel like hardcore partying but you still want to have some fun.

    One of my top 10 bars in London. Great decoration, nice staff. Most importantly they have EVERY DRINK you could think of (I exaggerated a bit but they have great range of drinks)

    Great beer selection. The layout breaks up the huge space into smaller more intimate spaces. Great for a Friday night, can be very busy and loud, but sometimes that's what you want for the weekend.

    Nice building with lots of areas to sit both upstairs and down plus outside. Several beers on tap including 2 guest IPAs. A good drinking spot if you are in the area

    A massive place though excellently designed, doesn't feel like a warehouse. Great decor, lots of bits to explore. Irish beers you've probably never heard of, good bottle selection too.

    A pub with a vast variety of beers, you need a lifetime to try them all. Busy because of the location but appropriately big and a lovely outdoors area. Super place although a tad expensive

    Say thanks to the bar staff - they're able to pull more than one pint at a time and are capable of processing mathematical equations in their heads rather than using the till. An oddity in London.
  • Tom D.
    Tom DaleJanuary 15, 2012
    This pub has an amazing beer selection, too many to handle all in one afternoon/evening. A fair few good bands play as well. Very good steak. Go back again and again.

    Amazing fun. Felt like I was in a classic dingy Pub without the stinky smell or sticky floors. Amazing craft beers, good service, friendly crowd.

    Such a great vibe an atmosphere here, though it does seem to be a bit of a maze to get around. The drink prices are decent given its in central London!

    GIANT PUB! If there's a large group of you this a good spot in Central. Great variety of drinks and a nice outdoor space with heaters too.

    The Porterhouse Red is simply amazing. Best place to watch the 6 Nations Rugby if you want a crowded atmosphere. Head downstairs.

  • Angus S.

    In spite of how cosy it feels there's lots of space here as it's on multiple levels. Good choice of beers, not bad prices for the location but don't go for the cocktails.

    The only place I've found with a decent strawberry beer in the UK. They also have Delirium Tremens AND BrewDog. Fantastic.

    Their meat feast pizza or whatever is bloody good! Real sausage on the pizza, heaps of cheese. You won't regret this buy.

    Keep an eye on your drink! Come near to closing time, staff clear the tables and that includes your recently purchased, ¾ full pint.

    One of my favourite pubs in the west end. Nice Stout, cosy places and good for a romantic date ;)
  • Chris R.
    Recent renovation means the interior is now even more eclectic with a separate gin bar upstairs. Still a very confusing and loud place, best for large groups. Avoid weekends.

    Sprawling brass beast of a bar, with more types of beer than you could shake an inebriated fist at. Any first-time visitor must try the oyster stout (no bivalves were harmed in the making).

    Bang in central London, you have to get there early to get a seat for 6 Nations Rugby viewing but there is such a good vibe it’s worth it.

    Beer Lao and Tooleys New are really good. Basement bar not as busy to get served, and much cooler downstairs! A few times I've been in and no Vietnamese, Thai or Cambodian beer - but beer Laos is good

    Download Orderella to your phone and order your drinks before you get here, also handy if you don't want to leave your seat to go to the bar.
