ONE MIGHT CALL US A ‘HIDDEN GEM’ - BUT PERHAPS ONLY IN THE SENSE THAT WE’RE BASED IN THE BACK OF BEYOND AND WE DON’T HAVE A SIGN. BUT WHEN YOU DO FIND US, YOU WILL FIND A WARM WELCOME, A GREAT ATMOSPHERE AND A CHARACTERFUL MEETING PLACE FOR A COFFEE WITH FRIENDS BY DAY AND A HOME OF VIBRANT AND DIVERSE ENTERTAINMENT AND FUN BY NIGHT.
FAILED ACTOR AND OWNER DAN PORTER BELIEVES IN TREATING PEOPLE HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED SO COME DOWN, NOT JUST TO LAUGH AT DAN AFTER HE’S HAD A FEW, BUT SO THAT WE CAN LOOK AFTER YOU AND GIVE YOU A NIGHT TO REMEMBERING WHAT WE HOPE WILL BE YOUR NEW HOME FROM HOME.
GOOD PEOPLE. GOOD TIMES.
Tuesday is Open Mic.
Wednesday is an ever changing roster of Comedy Den/Bandaoke/Boxfull and more - check events listings for the latest news.
Thursday we make up as we go along.
Friday? Well, it's just Friday at Porter's. Warm down from the week and warm up for the weekend. We'll provide the entertainment, you provide the company.
Saturday means 'Porter's Knees Up' - come down and kick your weekend up a gear. We put on some great live acts to get your toes tapping and your hips moving, so get yourself along and see what the ‘fuss’ is about.
'Come Down Sundays' are proof that God exists and that he took Sunday off - watch two free films in the bar. Play some board games. Listen to some of our vinyl. Hair of the dog is up to you but waiting for our weekly Quiz, hosted by our very own Ben Cooper, is highly recommended.
