Molto bello sullo stile industriale già fin troppo abusato forse ma cmq sempre d’effetto ! Hanno tutte le loro birre brassate a Dublino che a me non fanno impazzire ma qualcosa di buono sopratutto sullo scuro.

Big multi level pub with industrial factory decor. All Porterhouse own brews on tap all the ones I tried were decent Extensive selection of common world beers in bottles including Trappist Belgians. Very busy early evening but thins out later.

Dark and dingy and frankly dirty tourist pub near the market area. We were ’treated’ to rude service while we tried to choose our beers. The beers were in poor condition. No way will I be going back to this awful place again.

What a huge place! Themed like the porterhouse in Dublin just on a bigger scale. Service is fine with again the old story of London prices... Had no food so cannot rate it. Overall actually a good pub but it can get really crowded which spoils the place a bit.

An amazing multi-level place with copious amounts of metal piping everywhere - pub meets factory, but it works so very well. It plays host to an excellent range of European and North American bottled beers in addition to the fine products of the parent company, the Porterhouse Brewery Co of Ireland. An extensive and excellent menu serves salads through to juicy steaks and from 12 midday to 9pm Mon-Sat (7pm Sundays) Outside, heated facilities are available for smokers and provide a delightful setting in the warmer months for families. The Porterhouse really does bring a large dose of much needed Irish friendliness and hospitality to the very heart of London and long may it continue to do so.

Nice irish pub with mostly Porter House usualy avaible in other places. Wide rooms and cured furnishing, dark atmosphere inside, not much noisy. Quick staff and good service. Descreet place to sit inside and patio.

Visited several times. Huge multi storage pub, with cupper everywhere :-) very spacy, but at times very crowded. Cosy atmosphere with all the cupper deco and the empty bottles along the walls. The beers on tap are normally in good condtion. Food is great, the menu is traditionel pub food with a twist.

This is a truly cavernous pub located a short distance from Covent Garden and the Strand. There’s plenty of nooks (or alcoves?) to seat yourself in. The service was merely acceptable on my visit. The staff clearly don’t care a great deal about the product. The selection included 8 or so Porterhouse beers. There were a couple of mediocre guest casks. There’s a large bottle selection, though I didn’t spy anything particularly interesting on offer. Unfortunately, the quality of the Porterhouse beers wasn’t great. The value’s acceptable given the mega-touristy location. Overall, I wouldn’t be upset if I never came here again. London’s too good a drinking city to bother with this place.

Many visits over the years, largely pre 2009 ’before we got it good in London.com’ but popped by on a busy Thursday evening in Dec ’12 as had a works function in the area. Love the interior here, whilst not ’trad’ its a labrynth of floors and rooms with lots of wood, brass, copper, almost like wandering through a factory in the Victorian ages! Place is always packed of an evening, that’s one thing that doesn’t seem to change. There are a number of bars on the different levels, the first one you come to has the most extensive range, but you are likely to wait longer here as the crowds roll in from the street and rock up at the first bar. If you go to the top level there is a bar at the back on the left hand side where you can sometimes get served straight away or perhaps wait one turn. As touched on tho’, the range will be less than half the main bar holds. Beer range is all the Porterhouse regulars plus a few cask lines from other ’mainstream’ ish brewers. Bottle range is 100 plus and from all around the world. This looked semi - impressive 5 or so years ago, now it’s tired and there aren’t many beers you’d want to choose from it! Not a go to destination anymore (I think I would have classed it as such 5 to 10 years ago) but worth popping by if in the area.
