Square Meal Review of The Portman ?

Part of a small group that also includes Mayfair’s Only Running Footman, this elegant gastropub’s name reflects its location in the heart of the Portman Estate. Once used for law enforcement – the cells in the basement now hold cases of wine – The Portman is a foursquare, solid pub with an island bar downstairs & smarter dining room above (used mainly for functions). On sunny days, Sagres, Murphy’s & Amstel are drunk at the outside tables, while the menu loosely follows the seasons: expect curiosities such as spelt tagliatelle with confit rabbit, braised leeks & chanterelles, as well as standard breakfasts, Aberdeen Angus burgers & some lively fish dishes (perhaps sea bass with saffron potatoes, spinach & sauce vierge). The crowd is affluent, & it’s open 365 days a year.

  1. Marylebone Portman Village is a lovely little quarter with a few shops, restaurants around. So it’s a relief to have The Portman, an unexpected pub, don’t be fooled by the exterior. Even though it looks like your standard gastro pub, hidden on the first floor is an elegant dining restaurant. Service was prompt; as soon as we were seated drink orders were taken. The servers kindly told us about a few dishes were running low or there was none left...

  2. Like its sister pub, The Only Running Footman down the road in Mayfair, The Portman features a lively pub downstairs with a more subdued tablecloth serviced restaurant upstairs. The two pubs share similar menus and wine lists, but the vibe’s a bit more laid back and casual at The Portman. Prices are a little cheaper too. Remembering how much I loved my crispy squid, coriander and spring onions with chilli and lime aioli when I visited the Footman last month, I was curious to see how Portman’s version (£8.50 as a starter, £13.50 as a main) compared. It was a great starter that I was happy to woofed down...
