Decided I'd take a trip to the Porterhouse Bray for a quick bite to eat recently as I fancied a trip down to the beachfront with my girlfriend. Unfortunately I never got to sample that bite to eat. I wouldn't be the type to normally complain but if the Porterhouse are happy with the following then I guess that's their Prerogative. The place itself is a great location, I like the bar itself and the bar staff are friendly and nice but the service staff .. well, they seemed to want to serve everybody else but me and my partner. There were about 20 people sitting outside which isn't that many & we decided on sitting inside were there was only about 8 other customers. With 3 floor waiting staff on that to me is very manageable indeed figures indeed. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. The waiting staff never asked me once if I wanted anything to eat even after me requsting the menu's from them. Eventually after 30mins we called a waitress to order food from and she said she'd be with us in a few minutes. I ordered a 2nd drink from the bar and waited 40mins before walking out as the girl never came back. I don't see why I should have to ask a 2nd time to order food. Overall, very disappointed as I'd expect much much better from the Porterhouse Bray which is a shame .. But No excuses Lads .. A service industry without good service !!
