Went in last night and was gutted - Normal DJ gone and been replaced by 70/80's theme DJ. Didnt even bother to stay and finish our drinks. The music was always great in here - old school dance classics now its golden oldies. Defo wont be going back in - please let me know where DJ has gone and we will go there instead. Pathetic know wonder that side of the town is dead. Its a shame coz it was worth a visit for the music alone - 70's music - get over it !

Porterfield is 1 of my favourite pubs in the town, the DJ is brilliant and always plays requests, the toilets are clean, the bar staff are friendly and there is decent seating! What more could you ask 4? Yeh its quiet early on in the night but it never seems to bother me or the company I am in! The food is excellent aswell, very reasonably priced!

i think its a shame that all this time and money has been put into porterfields! please prey tell why you bought it on this side of town, have you not notice this side of town is on its death bed?? i still drink in brogans now and again and that aint 15% busy as what it yous't to be! ya really dont stand a chance unless the tables turn and people come back to this side!
also what is wrong with the name porterfields?? david brogan doesnt hasnt owned brogans in a long time and sadly died a while ago and no1 has said anything bout them changing there names!
i hope you's do well but its gonna be a very long hard struggle!

chances are whoever you are talking about is seeing more than just one person. must say, what is it with doormen and slappers??? why cant people like them for who they are and not what they do? does nowt for your rep. you might think it's makes you hard but it really doesnt. just a tad pathetic. even the 'nice ones' shag around and i could name a few.
take my advice

one of the barmaids needs to learn that the doorman in the town who she's constantly making a b-line for aint interested. he only is interested in women,not girls who constantly date doormen! do you not think the reason y he dont text you is he's already seeing somone>?? god,, girl take a hint,

Please change the name. It's so disrespectful to cash in on Ian Porterfield's death.
