Better than it was certainly and they serve food later than most of the joints of North Street.
The food is patchy as is the atmosphere. I've had a pretty good pizza and a bad one. The bad one was dreadful; dry crayfish, sparsly flavoured with Cherry tomatoes and sheez.
they cooked the Rocket? Roast Rocket! Much like the Tobacco the acoustics make it difficult to hear anyone, anything and so to help us all out they wack up the sounds to drown out the sounds.
No sense, and makes for an uncomfortable time whatever you're up to. Tackling screaming kids, drinking, eating etc. They need to get some consistency with the food.
The Porch boasts some hot chef from Michelin establishments but if he were then it wouldn’t be this patchy.
Still its not the coked up builder bar it used to be, and the one The Spotted Cow down the road currently is.
