I never write these reviews but I just experienced literally the rudest most offensive waiter ever to surface. We were almost an hour waiting for the wrong order to be delivered to the table and when we advised the waiter that he had gotten two orders wrong, he was rude and even went so far as insisting that the customer is not always right and he had written down the order exactly as we had said it. The fact of the matter was my colleague and I had ordered the exact same lunch and the other 4 people at the table can testify to what we ordered, however the waiter still insisted he was right. When we spoke to the manager who we had already noted when ordering drinks due to his snail like progress in delivering on drinks orders, he smiled inanely whilst noting he knows our faces from being regulars at the premises and would shout us both a free lunch next time we were in. This would have been fine only for the disingenuous delivery of his speech and also the fact we hardly ever frequent the porterhouse and I can sincerely add we most certainly won’t be doing so again. If you like craft beer then happy days enjoy the range available but excuse the poor bar service If Mr Incompetent of the year Sir Bar Manager is serving. However, if you are contemplating eating there, then my advice would be to walk on by.
