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.
