We opened Portland in January 2015 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. Our team is led by Executive Chef Chris Bassett who has been with us for several years and his team in the kitchen is led by our Head Chef Angelica Hope.

Wine has always been central to what we do – as well as our monthly-changing wine list we have a unique Single Bottle List featuring some of the world’s finest wines. Lucie Hammerschmiedova, our head of beverage, is always on the hunt for new brilliant wines and is just as excited by a superb-value house red as she is by a Grand Cru burgundy.

On the floor our team is led by our Front of House director Gabor Papp who is always keen to hear about anything he 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

Private Room

For groups looking for a more secluded dining experience, our private room is available. Please click here for more information.

Private Room

Our private dining room seats 7 to 14 guests and aims to replicate the experience of our dining room in terms of offer and service albeit in a separate and secluded space.

As in our main dining room, we offer an a la carte menu. It begins with welcome snacks sent from the kitchen while you enjoy a drink or wait for the last few guests to arrive, followed by a choice of first course, main course and dessert from our a la carte menu.

The menu is £69 at lunch and £95 at dinner for 3 courses and welcome snacks. Please click below for a sample menu and to book the room

Wine

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland.

Our wine list aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists.

The list contains some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers. We aim to be keenly priced at the high-end and seek out rarities and odd bottles which are sometimes no longer available anywhere else.

Our list is constantly evolving and we tend to hold only small allocations of most bins. Should you wish to put something aside for an upcoming visit, we would be more than happy to reserve a bottle for you.

Our partnership with Chateau d’Yquem

When you receive your dessert menu you will notice something quite special. We are very proud to be one of six restaurants worldwide working directly with Chateau d’Yquem to offer three vintages of their iconic sauternes by the glass.

Thanks to this partnership, we are able to source bottles directly from the Yquem cellars (where they have not left since bottling) and offer them at an incredibly competitive price. We currently offer the 1994, 2006 & 2011 vintages served via Coravin.
