There were four of us out for a Saturday night dinner. The place was not at all busy, starters came out quickly, fab, a couple of us went outside for a cigarette, practically immediately the mains were bought out. Cigarette break abandoned. The food was...More

Decent steaks, even if mine wasn't cooked to the instructions I'd given. But outrageous prices for the quality: for £30+ for a fillet it should be exceptional, not merely good. Sides weren't great - my wife's jacket potato was almost inedible. And the dining room's...More

Wanting a lighter meal we went for the 2 course set menu and it was lovely. Good choice of starters and mains, cooked and presented well.

Often eat here when stopping in Winchester. The specials menu (available Mon-Thurs) is good value and the food always outstanding. Service has always been good for me too. House red is a fine accompaniment. Not the place to bring vegetarian though.

This is our go-to restaurant for birthdays etc. It's never failed us. The quality of food (especially the steaks of course) is second to none and the service couldn't be better. Nothing is too much trouble for them - even when they had to cater...More

Porterhouse is not about variety. It's not about being all things to all people.
It's about doing something simple & doing it better than anyone else.
That something is Beef. 100% grass fed and naturally reared Beef.
