Porters is excellent in every respect - superb coffee and range of teas, wonderful cakes and sandwiches, a roaring fire when it's cold outside and a lovely outdoor seating area for warmer weather. The service is superb too - have never known anywhere get your order to your table as fast.

Like another reviewer, we were turned away from the front door in a rather unfriendly fashion and waved round the back. Get your act together, guys, this is no way to treat people.

Called in for afternoon coffee after a couple of hours shopping the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Had coffee and a nice piece of lemon drizzle cake which was very nice the cake was served with cream and fresh fruit looked and tasted lovely. The coffee was average nothing to shout about. I have rated 4 stars because the place is lovely and clean the staff were very welcoming and the service excellent. However for a local coffee shop it was a tad expensive.

Initially told to go round the back with our dogs. Although popular, it was the way the owner waved us out and told us to go to the back door.
The tea was good, plus the toasted tea cakes. The cinnamon flavoured was the best.

Nice serving staff though and mega friendly, made up for the frosty start.

We visited this cafe on a really cold day so it was great to have the fire alight. The cheese scones were really nice but maybe a bit peppery. The service was really fast and there was a nice atmosphere. Fairly expensive, but overall, worth it.
