Irish by professed nationality but global by nature, this gleaming Covent Garden hostelry (set over 12 levels with a busy terrace) does a fine line in international beers and hearty fare. Underpinning it all are draught stouts and ales; in the case of Wrasslers 4X stout, made to a century-old recipe. Along with the semi-titular Porterhouse Red, you'll find An Brain Blásta (at 7%, it lives up to its name), the gentler TSB and a pungent Oyster Stout.
The bottled list is a tippler’s travelogue: Corsican Columba, Cypriot Keo, Moroccan Casablanca. A hearty helping of Porterhouse Frying Pan, with smoked bacon, potatoes, chorizo and red piquillo, should soak up whatever you choose. There are also wines and cocktails, but that’d be missing the point.
