Very friendly service is a nice busy, but relaxing bar. Service was slow but I suspect it was because I was tucked away in a corner. The seafood chowder was delicious and the perfect small size. Overall a good place to stop.

If you're sick of Irish Stout head here for a craft pint, but don't expect it to blow you away. The beer is slightly above average but they have a good variety and its a lively place but not a party like temple bar.

Myself and my partner shared the chilli & garlic prawns and the sharing board and it was absolutely delicious! So much so we’re going back tonight! Cocktails and selection of alcohol were brilliant.

We ate lunch at Porterhouse Central on 9/27/18. This was a bustling pub with a huge selection of draft beers. The seafood chowder was outstanding with the brown soda bread, and the service was excellent.
