|Gigantic craft beer pub serving a mixture of tourists and after work drinkers mainly. Good selection of bottled beers, albeit pricey, and a great place to bring a large group of people given its size. Huge smoking area/beer garden outside. Staff friendly and efficient although this is a hugely popular pub so waiting times can be long even with the 3/4 bar areas they have.|

|Trying hard to seem authentic old style pub and nearly pulls it off. Decent ales, ambient lighting, plenty of nooks and tables to hide away in. Worth a visit for a pint of porter.|

|Well, what can be said about The Porterhouse? It's basically a massive, Irish-themed superpub in Covent Garden. Always rammed at the weekends. I've experienced several Friday sessions at this pub and ... I suppose it's a bit like a Las Vegas casino really, where you don't know what time it is and you end up sucked into a vortex of craziness.|
They seem to mostly have their own beers plus some guests in bottles. I've had their Red ale quite a bit, which is OK. There is also Chiller larger. So it's not a place for your regular brands. The price is pretty reasonable as well. And the staff are always a friendly bunch.
If you're in a big group, you'll have a good time. If you're not, you might get annoyed by all the people in big groups. I can't say I really like this place (my heart sinks just so slightly when it's suggested), but if you're up for a laugh and are prepared to ride the intensity of the place, then just take a deep breath and embrace it. 7

|Wow.... On a walk and came up the nell gwyne alley to be faced with this..... Something twigged and i rememered that it is in the camra 100 beer day out book. With all the choice, you could certainly spend a day. A monster of a pub, dont arrange to meet friends there, you'll never find them.|
I will be back.....
