You donít want to go here at night this place is a zoo. A great selection of their own brews and the make outstanding porters, stouts and have a pretty solid bottle selection. It also doesnít hurt that we ran to friends from back home when we had lunch there.

This place was a dissapointment. Sure, it has some beers on tap and an extensive bottle list. But most of what I asked for wasnít available. Itís also jam-packed, not always a bad sign, but most customers were ordering Heineken, etc.

I liked the place. Nice combination of old english and posh. Very crowded with mainly young people. Great selection of beers and even a very good own stout. Didnít have any food but it looked good. Friendly staff.

A big Porterhouse outlet in the very popular neighborhood of the Covent Gardenís market. They have many of their own beers which is the reason why you should visit, but I must say none of them was of any interest to me, being generally weaker than the rest of the English ales in quality. Considerable selection of bottled beers/imports, but you can probably find those bottles in a cosier and cheaper pub.

Packed to buggery on the saturday night I was there. Full of out-of-towners on the piss. Quite how this Covent Garden drinking barn ended up having a spankingly good selection of German and Belgian bottled beer I donít know. I had a Schneider Aventinus to start off with then a pint of their own brew Stout (average) and then an Erdinger. I donít know what you are used too in the States, maybe every pub does 100+ beers but here in the UK this kind of selection is rare. Its a shame its in such a souless pub, and they donít have the correct glasses. Oh, and all the good beers are from the down stairs bar, so you have to fight you way in and out.

Pretty decent beer. I particularly liked the Celebration and the Plain, but the ambiance (i-banker types) is a hassle. The bottled beer selection is nice and the building is fairly well set up, but, nonetheless, it becomes quite loud and filled with americans and the like. If you go, be sure to try the sampler tray of beers.

Very busy on the Friday night. Large selection of beers in the fridge, their own beers are OK without being anything special. Not my type of place, but popular.

Very pricey, and very much made to look like a brewpub, which it isnít. Some of their own brews are fine, but when they rant in their price list against big brewers, they should get their act together and get good imports instead of lagers from around the globe. This type of bar is fine in Dublin, where the competition is next to nothing, but is not good enough for London!

Rated on a relaxed Sunday afternoon with live music. This is definately not as partylike as on the Friday and Saturday nights Iíve visited earlier. Thereís usually 9 of their own beers on tap, and they are from bad to really good. And then they have a great selection of international lagers, so if You collect countries, this is a good place to get some ticks. The place is huge and a typical modern pub like interior. The service is OK.

Nice to have such a pub in the West End that has a great selection of beers, sample tray is great. A huge place on 3 levels with very loud live music. Not cheap but thatís central London. A great place to meet up if you fancy a high tempo night.

Not really used to having table service in Britain. Itís touristy. The beer is decent, not amazing though.
