Contemporary and stylish, with roots firmly nestled in the warmth of a traditional local, the Porchester is bursting with the vibrant flavour of its cosmopolitan surroundings. The venue can be found on Bishop's Bridge Road, close to Bayswater and Royal Oak stations, and within a stone's throw of Notting Hill. 

The Porchester serves up a range of hearty English grub alongside a list of great cask ales. The pub's burger and beer-battered fish & chips are particular fan favourites. The menu doesn't stop there, boasting a whole host of other appetising option,s as well as a selection of lighter sandwiches to tuck into. And if that wasn't enough, the venue's Sunday Lunch offering is definitely one of the best in the area too. There's plenty of tipples to team with your dinner as well, with a broad wine list to suit all tastes.

The venue regularly hosts a lively pub quiz night on Tuesday and it's definitely one for the sports fans - you're sure to catch all the big fixtures on one of their screens. During the summer months, the pubs elegant, secret beer garden kicks into life, decked out with quirky furniture and warming heaters for when the sun goes down. With a consistent level of quality all round and a buzzing atmosphere to boot, The Porchester is a real asset to the Bayswater scene.

Nice outside space, although doesnt get the sun. Reasonably priced but lots of inside space and a big screen for sports.

Booked for christmas eve-they neglected to say they would close at 10pm-ridiculous, every other pub in westbourne grove was open until 12. So disappointing. visited The Porchester on 24 Dec 2016

Enjoyed it. My veggie burger, with halloumi and mushroom and chips was delicious. Felt looked after by the staff, in a relaxed sort of way. Good to find somewhere so close to Queensway that didn't feel too touristy. Cosy pub on a rainy Saturday night. I did find the music a little loud though. visited The Porchester on 10 Dec 2016

The roasts are well worth shouting from the rooftops! Strong range of cask ales too. Friendly atmosphere and I can imagine the secret garden is a real asset in the summer months.
