FRIENDLY WITH AN OLD FASHIONED FEEL

View all 12 reviews

Within easy walking reach of London world-famous Theatreland, the Porcupine dates back to 1725. With a covered outdoor seating area for sipping ice-cold beers and watching the world go by on sunny days, the traditional pub serves hearty British food in a welcoming environment.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Constantly-featuring recipes are bolstered by a seasonally-changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully-matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, the Porcupine drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

Porcupine in Leicester Square is under a minute’s walk from Leicester Square Tube Station. Covent Garden is just a 4-minute walk away.

  • ((((( 4 July 2016 by Gill Hoggan from London

    Very good service, very attentive, we complained about the chips being cold and the waitress was very helpful and brought seem fresh cooked chips and keep coming back to apologise, when we asked for the bill she mentioned that they would be a discount and they took 20% off the food bill.

  • (((** 5 April 2016 by Carol Pavlis from The porcupine charing cross road

    Food was not very tasty. I was disappointed at the very limited menu for the LOVEtheatre vouchers having looked at the restaurant online.

  • ((((( 23 February 2016 by Laura Ambrose from London Borough of Hillingdon

    Had lunch there with a 30% off food voucher. Still able to choose from whole menu even with voucher. Great choice of food and drinks. Dining area nice and clean, staff were very nice and the service was quick. Really enjoyed the food and would go back again.

    Pre booked a meal at the Porcupine before going to the theatre. Wasn't sure what to expect but the food that was chosen was very good although a very limited menu on the pre theatre menu.

    We ate here before going to the theatre. It was easy to find and convenient. The service was very good and the food was lovely. We would go back next time we are going to the theatre near there.

  • ((((* 19 January 2016 by Amanda Boyd from Chester

    The food was good value and service great. The only problem we had, was the horrendous draft coming from the old windows. Some sort of draught proofing measures should be taken as the cold air whistling in made our meal uncomfortable for all the 6 diners.

    We like to visit every time we are in London as we are greeted by Martha as old friends. She looks after us so well and as usual the food was delicious.
