Porterhouse, The

The Porterhouse

You could easily get lost in here, especially after a few pints of plain. This Covent Garden outlet for Dublin's Porterhouse Brewery is huge: even finding the loo can be a bit of a task. Thankfully the beer's pretty good (the aforementioned, award-winning plain porter being the pick) even if the cask and bottled options are a little conservative. The best time to come is during one of the regular festivals, in particular the Czech festival in November.
