Husband and wife team Simon and Joy Brigg were inspired to set up Porky's after their US travels. After the success of their Camden branch they're bringing their southern American barbecue to Bankside in June 2014.

Awful experience, even before visiting the restaurant. Avoid in any case. I decided to book a table with them and they kept ignoring my emails for booking. I twitted about the absence of customer service and they replied immediately on twitter, in order not to show bad reputation on social media. Eventually they replied but they booked me on a timeslot that was convenient for them - ignoring my requests for timeslot, they just booked their own time that the restaurant is less busy. Trying to raise a complaint, they came back attacking me...At the end, I decided not to visit them at all - don't spent even 1p on rude & unprofessional people & restaurants like this one...

One of the few places which are wheelchair friendly and dog friendly around the Southbank area. This cool American style diner had tables set up ready for a game of beer pong. Food was what you would expect from a place like this and the portions were generous. Half baby back ribs were a bit tough but the slaw and pickles were good. Staff were friendly and we got a lot of attention sitting there with a gorgeous husky! There is usually a disabled toilet, but staff did inform us it was currently out of order and there are a couple of disabled parking bays right outside so this restaurant is pretty convenient. Place to go with a group of hungry friends and good for drinks and a game of beer pong after.


Meh, nothing awful but nothing great.  I was caught inside Porky's during an awful rain storm and although it wasn't so bad I wanted to leave it also wasn't so great that I didn't walk out as soon as the downpour stopped.  The food was ok, I had the pulled pork bun, it is definitely done a lot better by many other places in London.  If you are there, hungry and avoiding a rainstorm then worth a visit but definitely not worth travelling to.
