– Approachable fine dining and the world’s best wines –

 

PORTLAND REOPENS TUESDAY 29TH JULY

We opened Portland in January 2015 and have been here most days since! Our aim was to open a great neighbourhood restaurant but thanks to an incredibly-talented opening team, we got a bit smarter than we thought we would be and gained a Michelin star later that year which we are very proud to have retained ever since.

We try to offer the best contemporary example of fine dining in London – this doesn’t mean cloches and tablecloths (we don’t own a single one of either!)  but the finest produce we can find cooked with precision and a high level of technique led by our head chef Theo Clench and his team.

Wine has always been central to what we do and more so now than ever – as well as our monthly-changing wine list we have a unique Single Bottle List featuring some of the world’s finest wines at, in some cases, lower than retail prices. James Fryer, our head of beverage and co-director of the business, is always on the hunt for new brilliant wines and is just as excited by a brilliant house red as he is by a Grand Cru burgundy.

On the floor our team is led by Gabor and Rachael who always want to hear about anything they can do to make your visit that bit special – if it’s a birthday, anniversary or you just want to have a negroni waiting for you when you get here, please let us know.

We hope to see you here soon,

Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau
Owners

Private Dining In These Strange Times….

Our Private Dining Room is open and bookable but somewhat modified in order for us to ensure we follow current government guidelines on group socialising.

From re-opening until the end of August, our private room can be booked provided, as stated in current government guidelines, that each reservation is either no more than 6 guests or from no more than two households.

Should you be interested in booking in the Private Dining Room for a date beyond August, we are working in the hope that restrictions may, by then, be more lenient and reservations can be made for upto 16 guests from any number of households you wish! (of course should things not have changed by then, we will of course be able to modify or cancel your booking should you wish).

In the meantime, we hope that our private room and its offer of secluded and separate dining is just the thing you might be looking for as we take our steps back into eating and drinking with the people we love…

Wine

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland. Our every day wine list is coming soon and aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists.

Our Single Bottle List contains around 100 bins of some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers. We aim to be very keenly priced and at the high-end match or even undercut what you might find online – we even have a few bottles, such as the Mayacamas 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon, which are no longer available anywhere else!

Reserving your bottle in advance is strongly recommended

Your Wellbeing

How we are making our dining rooms safe

We have taken the following steps, above and beyond the 1 metre gap between tables and all other government guidance, to ensure you can feel as relaxed as possible while dining with us.

1. Air filtration – all our dining rooms have been fitted with brand new IQAir air purifiers equipped with a hospital-grade HyperHEPA filters.

2. Air flow – our front doors in all dining rooms will be open all day allowing for maximum circulation of fresh air. All our dining rooms are additionally fitted with a ‘fresh air’ air conditioning system.

3. Your table – your table will be set, prior to your arrival, by colleagues wearing disposable gloves and your menus will already be on the table ready for you.

4. Staff wellbeing – we take and record the temperatures of all our colleagues before each service.

5. ‘Contact-free dining’ – we are aware that for lots of reasons, each of our guests will have a different view on the level of interaction they would like with our teams during this unique period. For those who want to keep this to an absolute minimum we can offer ‘contact-free dining’ whereby your table will be set with everything you might need for your lunch or dinner and nothing, other than your dishes from the kitchen will be touched by anyone other than you. To find out about options for pre-ordering with contact-free dining please email the restaurant.

We appreciate some of this may seem to jar with the informal but professional hospitality we have always tried to define ourselves by. However, we feel the first step has to be to make our guests and our teams feel as safe as possible. With this achieved, our guests can see our restaurants as a place to relax and enjoy the type of hospitality and escapism that restaurants should always offer but have been unable to over the last few months.
