Newest Review: ... as the beer menu is about 8 pages long with beers from almost every country you can imagine, its a place i've challenged myself to someday complete the beer menu, it may sell wine and spirits although you'd never know!!! The bar is massive with a central bar and a number of raised and lowered areas, it gets so busy that you do have to simply stand still with arms by your sides, which means ... more

The Porterhouse Pub in Covent Garden was opened about a year ago, following the success of the Dublin-based Porterhouse Brewing Company's first outlet, in Dublin itself.

There are 9 (I think) beers on draught here, and as the name suggests, Porter is a speciality, as is its close relative, stout. For the uninitiated, Porter is similar to Stout (e.g. Guinness), but is usually a somewhat lighter drink. The Plain Porter at the Porterhouse is excellent, with a slightly sweet taste. I would also recommend the Porterhouse Red, a hoppy Red Ale. Also of ... Read the complete review
