The Porchester


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 Royal Oak, Bayswater and  Queensway stations, and within a stone's throw of Notting Hill and Paddington. 

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 Roast offering is definitely one of the best in the area too. There's plenty of tipples to team with your dinner, 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 sporting events on their two big screens.

They are currently taking bookings for the Rugby World Cup. Book your turf for the finals and take advantage of our brunch offer. Bring 3 (or more) mates, have brunch and they will throw in a round of Guinness or Ketel One Bloody Mary's! (T&C's apply)

Have you been tasked with organising your work Christmas party? This can be a bit daunting but they are here to help.

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are falling and the secret beer garden is a cosy area to shelter from the weather, decked out with quirky furniture, cushions, blankets and warming heaters on a cold night.

With a consistent level of quality all round and a buzzing atmosphere to boot, The Porchester is a real asset to the Bayswater scene.
