Called for a coffee and a cream scone. It is not the cheapest of places but the scone was big and tasty. The coffee was very good too. There is a nice open fire so always warm too. I have eaten here a few times...More

Very welcoming and lovely wood burner on a cold snowy day. All the food was homemade and the soup and cake that we had was very tasty, if a little pricey. Staff nice and friendly.

As well as great coffee - Porters offers you really good home-cooked food, comfy seating, a real open fire on cold days - and friendly staff! On warm days you can sit outside but still under cover.

A few years have passed since our last visit but nothing has changed except perhaps the prices! Same attentive and friendly banter coupled with excellent food. A pleasure to spend time especially if you can secure a table where the roaring fire is.
