Respond to Review of CLOSED: Porter Cellar Bar
Review: The Porter was taken over a few months ago by a new manager who had not managed a pub or gastro pub before. The manager made a decision to make the pub entirely vegan, and a lot of excited press releases came out about this. The manager then changed his mind. The food available to vegans is now things like a simple falafel dish, some hummus and olives. I ordered the chips as a bar snack (listed to come with 'sea salt and cracked black pepper). They came ice cold and coated in a fine black pepper powder which was definitely not 'cracked', and table salt. I asked for some ketchup from the server, who I never saw again. The staff do not know what beers are veggie/vegan, or anything about the wines. The pub is losing its veggie focus, which is a real shame considering all its years as a great veggie hangout.
