Meat is king at Porterhouse SY1, a grill restaurant and bar with a penchant for pork and a soft spot for steak. Entertainment is also on the menu, with live music and open mic nights regularly taking place.

Tuck into a three little pigs burger, gloriously crammed with pulled pork, crispy belly pork, baconnaise and crispy onions, or tackle the signature 16oz Porterhouse steak with a choice of sauce. Sticky pork chops and pulled pork burritos are equally irresistible, whilst Moroccan spiced lamb or Mexicana chicken salad provide lighter options. Vegetarians aren’t neglected with the ultimate mac ‘n’ cheese, five bean chilli burger and a vegetarian platter all up for grabs on the dedicated vegetarian menu.

Porterhouse SY1 in Shrewsbury also serves an enticing array of cocktails, wines and beers. Guests can sample these from the light, modern restaurant or in the conservatory and courtyard.

Pairing quality food with live entertainment, Porterhouse SY1 is a 6-minute walk from Shrewsbury Train Station.

    Friendly welcome - perfect steak, cooked exactly as requested, one of the tastiest I've had in Shrewsbury. This is our 2nd visit, & we are both finding the liquid desserts a bit irresistible! Perfect if you're too full for a normal dessert but want a bit of delicious, alcohol-laden indulgence to end the meal! Great buzz & background music- just one slight negative thing - it's a little cramped & some of the chairs are very wonky & feel unsafe - we had to swap 2.........& the cock-eyed mirror is maybe a bit more annoying than cool!?

    I've visited Porterhouse before and wasn't impressed so I was hoping that it would have improved this time.
    We arrived at the time we booked our table to find it wasn't ready. After a while we were shown to out table and the food was good.
    Staff were very nice but I still feel this is a very overpriced restaurant for the quality of the food they serve.

    Lovely, new menu change is better than the previous one. Burger Monday's are very good value ! The only downside is that everytime we visit we can never finish the meal! Very generous portion sizes. Overall an enjoyable evening and we will be back again.

    Booked a table for a Thursday lunch time and our experience was fantastic in every area. We got the train and the train station was within easy walking distance. The service was great, food was fantastic and the cocktail list was great too. I mentioned when booking that it was my boyfriends birthday and they made a real effort with his dessert which had Happy Birthday on the plate, a lovely surprise for both of us. We will definitely return.

    When I called the restaurant to move the time to later they had no booking for me at the time I had requested through Bookatable. I am now not very confident to book a restaurant again this way.

    Restaurant was great but if I hadn't called we would not have got in.
