Friendly and fast service. Very good food. Main courses were very large. Noisy, bustling atmosphere.

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.

    Unfortunately it was a shambles from start to finish. Music so loud in the bar you couldn't hear yourself speak. No staff on the bar. Mopping floor leaving it slippery with no apologies or comment. Really poor staff apart from the poor girl who served us. Not her fault. At £20 for an 8oz rump steak I expected a lovely meal. Steak overcooked and flavourless, meagre portion of soggy chips, rubbish salad and raw tomato that was described as sloiw cooked! Complained and presented with a better steak but it really wasn't good. My friend had chicken fajitas which were also less than satisfactory. A real disappointment. I felt there was a total lack of staff training and a pretty poor chef.

    We had to wait a very long time for the waiter to take our order - around 20 minutes, followed by a 45 minute wait for the a rial meal. My steak was supposed to be medium rare but it turned out to be well done, while my friend's 'medium' looked very raw.

    We were greeted very warmly and the place looked nice. However that was the only positive. The service was slow to non-existent and the food was at best hit and miss. Nobody finished their meal apart from the lucky steak eater and any chance of a dessert to take away the taste of the fatty, over cooked short ribs was lost with the entirely absent waiter. The table next to us was left uncleared and we eventually realised that no-one was coming so we went to the till ourselves to pay and escape. The restaurant was not at all busy and I completely understand why.

    Second time visiting the porterhouse,staff are amazing!!! So helpful and friendly,food was very tasty,the only slight criticism I have is that the tables are a little to close together and felt as though we had to whisper as we were so close to the 'neighbours', I had burrito which was delicious but way too hot!! My friend had finished her meal and there was still steam coming of it! The overall experience at this hotel is still wonderful and wouldn't hesitate in booking again.

    Service was poor. Waiter brought out 3 meals after a 45 minute wait, although we ordered for 4 people. Side order was also forgotten about. Drink for my daughter took ages.

    Good food and helpful, friendly staff

    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!?
