I haven't been to Porters since the 1990s and wanted to take my husband as my recollection of the restaurant was of good british cooking with a home cooked feel and an excellent atmosphere. Unfortunately our experience was so disappointing. I ordered the fish cakes served with spiced lentils and a choice of vegetable, salad or potato sides dish. My husband had the Guinness and steak pie with chips. The food arrived in record time, my fish cakes were not served with the lentils and when I questioned this the waitress appeared not to really under stand what I meant, reluctantly brought a portions of lentils to the table and then had the cheek to says she wouldn't charge! The food was warm not hot and my husbands pie and chips was a great disappointment with no flavour. Oh how things change, we definitely won't be going back.
