Porterhouse Brewery Company

About the Pub

Bewilderingly multi-levelled establishment, featuring riveted steel beams, industrial style pipes providing the air-conditioning, polished handrails, cabinets of beer, whiskies, and spirits collected by the owners since the 1990s, and an impressive clock with exposed mechanism. The pub was designed by Irish architect Frank Ennis and claims to be the largest pub in London. It is the London showcase for Ireland's Porterhouse Brewery Company, providing the one real ale - Turner's Sticklebract Bitter (TSB) - from the Porterhouse range plus three guest real ales. The various other Porterhouse Brewery beers are served under gas pressure but are unpasteurised. There is a large range of American, Belgian and other European bottled beers. Food served includes burgers, pizza, pies, steak, sandwiches, and various snacks. A large outdoor area at the front of the premises, heated in winter, provides for smokers and al-fresco dining. Very popular with the after-work crowd and then the evening revellers; live music towards the end of the week.

A wall plaque commemorates the artist JMW Turner, who lived in a house on the site.
