From Covent Garden tube station, turn right and walk down and through the square. Take the south exit (on the right hand side) on to Henrietta Street. Porters is on your right hand side.

Established by the seventh Earl of Bradford to serve 'good, simple, traditional English dishes', Porters remains a succulent stronghold of hearty British fare. Situated in busy Covent Garden, the relaxed and family-friendly restaurant offers a well-priced range of classics such as steak and kidney pudding, beer battered cod and chips and shepherd's pie. There are afternoon and evening fixed price menus, including one for post-theatre diners, and afternoon tea is available.

Founded by Richard, 7th Earl of Bradford, in 1979, Porters is a reasonably priced English restaurant in Central London specialising in homemade food, from leek and herb sausauges to faggots, steak and mushroom pie to a 21 day hung Sirloin steak, with English puddings to follow. It serves the sort of dishes that you might have hoped to find in London pubs, but ended up with lasagne instead!
