Portland opened in January 2015 with the aim of cooking the best produce, simply but with imagination and plenty of care. Our menus have changed a great deal since then, but that overarching idea has not.
In September 2015 Portland won a Michelin star and in 2016 its sister restaurant Clipstone opened just around the corner.
Our wine list is given just as much attention as our menu and changes almost as frequently. Alongside a selection of ‘textbook’ examples, we aim for it to deliver value by focusing on some lesser known varietals and regions. We also have a ‘Single Bottle List’ of rare and esoteric finds.
We very much hope to meet you at Portland soon.

You can find us at 113 Great Portland Street (half way up, opposite the Horse & Groom pub and next to the BBC).
Wine, food and service have equal importance to us – our wine list has always played as big a role as our menu and the way we look after guests.
Our wine buying team scour old cellars, auctions and off the beaten-path wine merchants to create what we hope to be one of London’s finest wine lists. Our 190-bin strong list aims, like all our restaurants, to celebrate wine in all its manifest diversity. In our cellar you will find natural skin-contact wines mingling with textbook red-trousered claret and everything in between.
