When it gets busy the service can slip so be warned.

The food always comes quick from the kitchen. The burgers don't look that great to be honest and the steak sandwich is a little disapponting but the wings far outweigh the discrepancies of the other menu items. Get them Salt & Chilli style with hot sauce on the side. Best wings i've had in town. (Just don't expect a big chilli kick)

Our recent trip though was a bit of a disappointment, we ordered a number of things to share, chicken wings (hot/spicy), onion rings, chips and scampi. Aside from the chicken wings, which were tasty but most definitely not spicy as suggested on the menu, everything else was bland and to my mind tasted exactly the same. The servings are generous and while I felt full after my meal I also had a strange unfulfilled feeling.
We tried some of The Porterhouses own larger brews to accompany the meal, all of which were more satisfying than the food. I seem to remember the Porterhouse having a range of other Irish beers aside from their own brews, but I could be mistaken. Perhaps as the whole micro brewery idea has been catching on The Porterhouse have been circling the wagons and protecting their own? Not a bad idea so long as they improve the food!

They changed the menu since the last time I was there and it seems to have been for the better.
I ordered the 3 mini burgers, which was a little dry and it could have used some kind of sauce to make it better.
Chips was great.
My Girl Friend had a ceasar salad which was massive and looked and tasted great.
Anyways it was a very cheap dinner and I believe I might have been unlucky with the burgers, so very nice.
Atmosphere was good and service was a little slow with getting the first contact with us, and showing us a table but. Minor detail... It is a pub = find your own seat, I guess...
