If you are looking for a Saturday brunch then why not try the porters lake pub! Nothing fancy but nice choice of food with something for the sweet or savoury tooth! Easy on the purse and polite and pleasant staff.

Have had the pub burger. Not much flavour and a bit tough. The salads have always been fresh and good. I find the atmosphere dark and dated. The servers are always friendly and helpful. Service can be slow. There is a change table and high chairs to accommodate the young ones.

The food was mediocre but the prices were not. There aren't many choices when out in Porters Lake. So many better choices in the city a few minutes away.

I had the Fish and Chips. It was plain fare and had no special presentation, but I mostly cleared my plate. The batter was OK - it could have been cooked a tad longer, but was quite edible. Hubby had the Stir Fry and found it to be very good. He was a member of the clean plate club that... More

Although a large menu there was little on it that we found inspiring. The food we had was just okay. Service though was good.

Went here for supper and just happened to be there on Thursday. They had live entertainment. The service was quick even though it was a full house. My husband ordered liver and onions and I ordered Tikka marsalla. Which I have never had. It was delicious. I am so pleasantly surprised with the service and the ambience made me feel... More
