Porters English Restaurant



For a true taste of Ye Olde England, Porters English Restaurant is difficult to beat. Located in the heart of Covent Garden on Henrietta Street, this delightfully traditional establishment boasts more than 30 years' experience, and is something of an institution in the heart of theatreland. Its authenticity, and location in the centre of England's capital, makes it a firm favourite with tourists every day of the year. So popular is Porters, in fact, that many of London's most famous attractions offer meal deals with the restaurant, leading to a steady influx of visitors from all over the world.

Inside Porters, the homely décor is both warm and welcoming, while the attentive waiting staff are every eager to ensure that all diners enjoy a relaxed meal and highly professional service. For lunch, Porters English Restaurant is a great option for a business luncheon, a break from shopping or sightseeing or even something lazier and lengthier. In the evening, the venue is crammed with diners enjoying fine food with family and friends, while the atmosphere is one of conviviality and relaxed enjoyment.

Every dish served at Porters English Restaurant is classically English. Wait, come back! There are some splendid meals to be had here, with generous portions and the freshest ingredients coming as standard. For starters, the dressed Norfolk crab soup is unmissable, while mains worth mentioning include the steak, Guinness and mushroom pie, the game pie, the three bean spicy lentil and vegetable pie, the 12oz 28-day aged rib eye steak, the beer-battered cod and chips and the splendidly filling braised beef faggots. For drinks, a selection of ales, beers, spirits and worldly wines await.
