The first ‘Porta’ was opened in Chester in 2012 by restaurateur brothers Ben & Joe Wright. It is located next door to their eponymous restaurant, Joseph Benjamin. A second site opened in 2016 in the market town of Altrincham, Greater Manchester, opposite the bustling market hall. Our third tapas bar is now open in Bexley Square off Chapel Street, Salford.
The aim at Porta is to keep things really simple. A relaxed, totally informal environment inspired by the tiniest independent tapas bars of Barcelona and Madrid. Lots of bar stools and casual tables create a busy, buzzing atmosphere.
The menu is enthusiastically Iberian, representing many tapas bar classics. Joe works with his team of chefs tirelessly perfecting recipes for every sauce and menu item – everything is handmade in-house.
No need to book, just come along and grab a space. Simply put, Porta is the kind of place to relax in – unpretentious and comfortable with good music, beer, wine and food.
