Porters English Restaurant

A traditional boarding-house British meal in Covent Garden

London had so many pricey traditional restaurants, the Earl of Bradford decided there was room for reasonably priced, well-prepared British cuisine.

He gambled right, and Porters became popular with people looking for the tastes they remember from boarding school and old-fashioned family dinners.

The meat pies and puddings are particularly good; try the unusually flavored lamb and apricot pie with mint and Lady Bradford's famous banana and ginger steamed pudding.

17 Henrietta St. (half a block off the Covent Garden square)
