Perfect pies!

Bought 2 pies for supper, really good pastry & filling. However, we bought them frozen as it was only 5pm & were charged over £4 a pie which didn't seem particularly good value. Think would have cost the same if heated or ate in. Would go back to try different pies, but would were price next time.

Whether to eat in or take away, the pies on offer at Piggy in the Middle are the best we have ever eaten. The table space is limited, so if you want to eat in it's best to book in advance.

We visited Porlock on the 21st of June and decided to return to try the fish and chips here. When we returned they were closed although note on door said open from 5pm. However on peering through the door to the back wall we found another note advising they were closed for annual holiday during certain dates. Yes you've guessed... More

Fish and chips and pie and mash feature on the menu at this cute little eatery in Porlock. A vast range of meaty pies, and no less than FIVE vegetarian ones. Absolute veggie heaven. I went for spicy cauliflower, spinach and lentil in the end but was spoilt for choice. My husband opted for a traditional steak and ale pie... More

I came here with my wife as this place has a good local reputation and we love fish and chips as a treat. Everything is cooked from fresh and so we expected a bit of a wait. As they were busy we had to wait about 5 minutes at our table for our order to be taken but once it... More

The fish is cooked to order so understandably takes a while but the wait was well worth it as we thoroughly enjoyed our take out fish and chips.

The fish was fresh and sufficient quantity, though the service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry.

Visited here whilst on holiday, excellent food, good service and value. It's only a small place so booking is advised.

The plan was hatched! We'd go to the pub a few doors down, picking the fish supper up in half hour. It worked to perfection. Absolutely superb food quality and customer service!
