Porter House SY1

15 St Mary's Street, SHREWSBURY, SY1 1EQ

1 rosettes

The place used to be known as Mad Jack's, in homage to a Georgian roustabout, but has had an image makeover and gone distinctly saner, with a 21st-century monochrome look, all white walls and charcoal-grey furniture under the atrium ceiling. Local sourcing is a sine qua non, with Shropshire beef a particularly proud boast. It turns up, along with a little wagyu for luxury, in many of the upscale burger variations that form the theme element of Monday nights, and the rest of the menu maintains the pace with trending brasserie preparations such as Maryland crabcakes and chipotle mayo, sticky ribs, fish or beef tacos with spicy rice, and creamy carbonara. It all creates a breezy mid-Atlantic feel in unassuming Shrewsbury, through to a slate of hipster desserts like sticky maple pecan pie with cream soda float. Brunchers, start your tastebuds with one of the Bloody something hangover cocktails, before moving on to a fishfinger sandwich and skinny fries.
