Hiding up on the corner of Jewry Street, City Road and North Walls this gem of a steakhouse restaurant is not. Winchester devotees of grass-fed beef are already familiar with the plainspeak-named Porterhouse Steakhouse and its superlative offering of simple-spoken take of the classic English steak restaurant prototype. Newcomers will want to get privy to the restaurant’s core menu packed with succulent steaks, with various Italian and British dishes backing the lot up, making for a great dining experience in the upper reaches of the town centre.
Regulars to this bright and approachable, modern British steakhouse are familiar with this Winchester steakhouse restaurant’s best hand – traditional cuts of grass-fed beef served simply alongside seasonal vegetables and a handful of chips. Unless of course you’re going for the traditional gammon steak, in which case expect an airdrop of grilled pineapple or a fried egg on top. Yes, it’s not simply simple steak on offer here – expect a few other steak standards, like the porterhouse steak sandwich, to round off proceedings here on Jewry Street.
A great introduction to what many know as Winchester’s premier steakhouse restaurant is to go for the Chateaubriand for two special. Start with grilled halloumi, asparagus & a mixed green salad, followed by the main attraction, 21oz Chateaubriand steak cut from the head of the prime fillet, lean and exquisitely tender, accompanied by roasted potatoes and chips with béarnaise & peppercorn sauces. Porterhouse Steak is a restaurant that beats the competition in the town centre by offering something familiar done simply, done right. A fair few of Winchester’s steak fanatics have made Porterhouse Steakhouse their restaurant of choice, so be sure to book a table in advance.
We've been a few times before thus know they're consistently good - but the Porterhouse steak was cooked perfectly, the chips crispy and tasty as ever, and our sides of roast vegetables and red cabbage accompanied our steak beautifully. Very happy indeed.
Another excellent meal with great service. Steaks cooked to perfection and a comprehensive choice of accompaniments. The peppercorn sauce is a particular treat. Very enjoyable evening.
Has to be my favourite place to eat. Best steak I have eaten. Food was perfect, wine was excellent and the service was spot on. Even the bill was fair. Highly recommend
