I love the overload of shiny lacquered wood around the bar, and...more

Porterhouse is a complete maze of floors and stairs but once you've worked out how to get from your table to the bar you're fine!

A couple of friends were visiting London and staying in Covent Garden a few weekends ago and we met up for Sunday lunch. Whilst deciding where to go I found it really hard to find somewhere that did a good Sunday roast and wasn't ridiculously expensive close to...more
