The Hot Tomarles

Saturday 28th September 2013
Food served from  7:30pm  Music starts at 8:30pm
Tickets: £6 in advance

We welcome back this unique duo who have stretched the boundaries of what can be done in the acoustic blues genre, by creating the sound of a five piece band played by only two members. Using live looped bass lines they combine harps, guitar, vocals and floor stomp box to give a full band sound.

Café Portico August Break and Trip to Italy

It’s the summer holidays and that means, erm, holidays! So, we’re shutting Café Portico from Sunday 19th August until Thursday 30th August whilst we take a trip to Italy for inspiration for some new dishes…

Because it’s the summer break, there are no Café Portico music nights in August BUT September tickets are expected to sell fast so don’t forget to book early and check our Cafe Portico Facebook page and Cafe Portico Twitter account for updates on ticket sales!

Until then, we hope you all have a lovely summer.

❤ Portico

Our new opening times are:

  • Mon-Tues – 9am-5pm
  • Wed-Fri – 9am-midnight
  • Saturday – 10am-midnight
  • Sundays and Bank Holidays – CLOSED

As many of our regular customers know, we serve a great selection of coffee, teas and home-made cakes as well as an extensive selection of fresh food on our ever changing blackboard.

We are fully licensed so you can come along for a drink and something to eat at any time day or night

We also cater for private parties. If you would like to book our venue then please contact me (Sim) on 07956653156 or email events@cafeportico.co.uk

After 5pm we dim the lights and become a relaxed wine bar offering an extensive selection of wines, beers and spirits that can be accompanied with nibbles or one of our more substantial Portico sharing platters.
