Square Meal Review of Portabello ?

A smart but unassuming bar/restaurant, Portabello is particularly popular as a pre/post-theatre destination. Expect a broad selection of modern British crowd-pleasers on the menu, from a terrine of pressed rabbit, bacon and leeks to treacle tart with clotted cream and blackberries, via slow-roasted lamb shank with winter greens, port and orange sauce. Beef is sourced from nearby Kirtlington, and it’s dry-aged for 28 days for a choice of kindly priced steaks served with chips and a choice of sauces. Set menus can bring lunch in at under £13 for three courses, and weekend breakfasts are a big hit – think poached duck egg with grilled tomatoes or buttermilk pancakes with bacon and maple syrup alongside muffins and croissants. Shaded outdoor seating beneath a cream awning is in demand throughout summer, while wine selections are global and affordable.
