The main meal (Sunday lunch) was very nice and 3 out of the 4 sweets were lovely although My friend had to return her Rum baba dessert as she said it was extremely dry and couldn't even taste the rum. She was offered another one but turned this down - she was given a glass of fizz instead which was a lovely touch. Staff were very friendly and appeared knowledgesble especially when we asked about the various gins on the menu. But disappointingly the Service was poor and slow . We waited a while for the food and between drink orders, we order coffees - one came first and then the other 3 came about 15 minutes later and were cold. I was slightly disappointed as it was for a special occasion for my friend - not sure if I would return for food but would possibly have a drink as the bar and restaurant are done done amazing and very quirky.

Absolutely loved the decor and feel to the bar! Only rated down on food and drink as the only vegetarian option on the menu was not available for one of my guests. Bar was a little cold, but cant be helped sometimes in the north east! Apart from that perfect birthday meal, will definitely return!

This was the first time we'd been to Colonel Porters and had booked it for our Valentines night celebration. The surroundings were just to our taste and the food excellent. Good selection of drinks and friendly staff made for a wonderful night. We'll definitely return.

Great food and drinks, quality, quantity and presentation was exceptional. Service was a mixed bag of mostly absolutely on point and going above and beyond, but occasionally mysteriously absent for periods. Great experience, would recommend.

Recommend the Tipsy Afternoon Tea, great way to spend an afternoon. The chef was very accommodating with a number of different dietary requirements.

Arrived early and was greeted by a lovely gentleman that sorted our table. Lovely bar lovely atmosphere would highly recommend it. Was a little disappointed in the menu. We had a look online and the dishes that tempted us there are no longer available. Which I know can happen. But when a menu says about the pig board /fish board etc and these are no longer available. The board we had was nice but I found the menu a little bit boring. To be honest if it had said that on the website we probably would of chosen somewhere else.
