The Porro Chefs have busy working away to create a special menu for Christmas 2017. We have a dedicated bookings team ready and waiting to take your enquiries and reservations for the festive season.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact form below, remember its never to early to think about Christmas

Opened in 2015, Porro is the second venture from the team behind The Potted Pig. We serve a varied and constantly changing menu of modern British food with Italian influences Like The Potted Pig, we serve food we love cooking and eating.

Porro embraces the Italian philosophy of celebrating simple, quality ingredients. We make every effort to keep our menus seasonal, which means using as many locally sourced products from independent and local suppliers as possible. There are however some things which can only be sourced from Italy!

The wine and drinks menu has been carefully selected to match our menus and is reviewed on a regular basis. We carry an excellent range of independently sourced wines as well as a fantastic array of bottled lagers, ales and ciders.

In addition to our main restaurant dining room, we have a unique private dining room available for parties up to 20, on the first floor.  The rooms has been refurbished to offer a space which can be reserved for dining, celebration or for special hospitality – and includes its own mini-bar.

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.

“The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.” —Pierre Corneille Christmas is a special time, a time when gifts are at the top of our priority lists and imagination is at its peak – so just how beneficial is gift giving during the festive period, both for you and the recipient? Is it always important to give? The answer must be yes, particularly when you take the time and trouble to buy special and thoughtful surprises for friends, family and colleagues alike. Whilst it feels good to be on the receiving end, there’s a fantastic feeling of self-gratification when …

Christmas Dinners that we’ve grown to love…

One phenomenon of the Christmas dinner (besides the pig in blanket) is its capability to change depending on whose hands it’s crafted in. Despite being constructed of the same components, somehow each home holds its own flavour – from the attributes of the gravy to the adornments on the Brussel sprouts. Crisp and fluffy roast potatoes, sausage meat stuffing and sharp cranberry sauce, it’s all the same – is it not? And although home cooks may share their culinary secrets, these are ideas merely borrowed, never replicated, making each Christmas dinner unique. From sordid ingredients to poor pallet preferences, family …

Has the Christmas cake fallen out of fashion?

With three months to go…. the Christmas connoisseurs among us will know in order to be perfectly prepared for Christmas, now is the time to get planning. With your sloe berries a’brewing next on the list is the classic Christmas cake.

  5. We went there Christmas Eve last year, 3 course meal off the Christmas menu was excellent, staff very attentive & friendly.

  6. I have heard mixed reviews on this branch of Porro. It was the first time we visited and were very impressed. The service was excellent, attentive, not intrusive. The food is good quality simple Italian fare.

  7. A great place to meet up for a quick bite in the morning. Excellent service, and good food that was exactly as described.

  8. Aw, this became a very good post. In concept I have to place in writing similar to this moreover – spending time and actual effort to have a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and also by no means find a way to go done.

  9. Booked the upstairs function room for a birthday meal on a Saturday night for 20 people (mix of ages). We had a fantastic night and can’t recommend Porro enough

  14. Had the best meal at Porro in Wellfield the other day – loved it so much that I’ve booked for December to sample the Christmas menu! Cannot wait to return!

  15. Porro is great for the whole family – it’s one of the few places I can take my kids too and they actually enjoy it! Do you have a kids menu this Christmas? The Potted Pig is much better suited to a romantic evening for two however – both of which I will enjoy this Christmas!
