Portland has been long in the planning and built from scratch on the site of a long-forgotten clothing showroom. It has 45 covers and a private room for 16. We take reservations for all services but we might need your table back two hours later, if that’s ok, as we’re quite a small place.
Our food is based on the very best produce we can find cooked as simply as possible but with imagination and plenty of care. Our wine list changes every month – it starts at £21 a bottle and goes up to our ‘Special’ bottles which are all available by the glass.
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday.
We very much hope to meet you at Portland soon.

Our private room seats parties of anything from 8 to 16 people. Because it is designed for larger groups, we offer a set menu for the whole table. The room is all yours for the afternoon or the evening and you will have a dedicated member of our team looking after you.
We offer two different menus :
A Feasting Menu at £55 per person and a Tasting Menu at £75.
Option 1: Feasting Menu
The Feasting Menu offers a selection of seasonal dishes designed for sharing. Our homemade bread and charcuterie will kick things off, followed by 4 first courses on sharing plates for your party to enjoy.
After this, one main course (a choice of beef, lamb, pork, venison or fish for the whole table) will be served on large platters along with three vegetable sides.
You can then choose a dessert for the whole group (Chocolate mousse, Muscovado sugar tart or Lime curd, sable and Italian meringue) to be followed by coffee and petits fours.
The price is £55 per head.

Option 2: Tasting Menu
The Tasting Menu offers an experience more akin to dining upstairs in the main restaurant in Portland. All dishes are individually plated and each guest will receive their own dishes unlike the more ‘family-style’ sharing nature of the Feasting Menu.
The Private Room Tasting Menu begins with three snacks (one each for each guest) followed by four individually-plated courses (usually two fish, one vegetarian and then finally one larger meat main course).
This is followed by a plated dessert course devised by our pastry chef to suit your requirements and preference.
The price is £75 per head.

We will of course cater to all dietary requirements for either menu option and there is a text box in the booking page below to enter these.
