We booked an early evening meal whilst visiting the Winchester Christmas market. The streets of Winchester were heaving and we wanted a meal before we set off for home and booked this restaurant. What a good choice. This restaurant is located a bit away from the high street and we nearly gave up looking for it. So glad we found... More

Me and my friends and husband came here for a birthday celebration. None of us chose to have starters but all picked steak, sides and two desserts to share. The steaks come with fries and two house sauces as standard which are quite nice but i know some people will find that difficult to accept just getting the choice of... More

This is a lovely restaurant with great food and friendly staff. Nothing is too much hassle and they have the largest pepper mill I have ever seen.

We arrived in Winchester to visit the Christmas market and following this decided to look for somewhere new to eat avoiding the usual high street restaurant chains and we were not disappointed. Arriving just after 6.15pm the restaurant was already pretty busy and we were lucky to be offered a table for 2 before all tables were full...we took this... More

Decided to come here as we were in the mood for a good steak . The inside was very nicely decorated staff friendly.Had the beef teriyaki on skewers for starter which was tender but no taste at all . We both then choose the ribeye steak medium rare . You don't get a choice of sauces but luckily I liked... More

A cold night but a warm welcome. We ordered the 'special' chateaubriand meal with an extra portion of the prawn starter for the three of us. It was more than enough and tasted delicious. The rare steak was perfectly cooked and we left very happy.

A quiet Sunday night, we were greeted very warmly and shown to a table in the window. A good menu either a la carte or special offer. We had the special which was good value. I recommend the Bailey's cheesecake - it was delicious. Friendly staff who took care of us very well.

We had a starter of tiger prawns which was really good, very large meaty prawns and enough to satisfy us both. We had the full Porterhouse steak between the two of us on our anniversary meal away in Winchester. The steak was good and, though a little chewy in places. The chips were fairly average and they only provide 2... More

Dinner at Porterhouse for my wifes' birthday this year. Great atmosphere and we were seated immediately - only to be told we had to vacate the table within 90 minutes. Not what I had in mind given the premium menu and Winchester's not exactly central London. Food was great but the invitation to leave on such an intimate occasion will... More
