Warm welcome. Lovely service. Chose fish and chips. Not the worst we've ever eaten, a little greasy, seemed like frozen chips and no offer of other sauces, only tartare sauce given. Nice surroundings and very pleasant staff. Made me not wanting to be honest about the food. Would go again and maybe try the pies and mash.

Although Piggy in The Middle is listed as a fish 'n' chip restaurant we opted to try the vegetarian pies and so we're glad we did, absolutely gorgeous, piping hot served with a creamy mash and perfectly cooked vegetables and accompanied by a jug of vegetarian gravy. If you visit Porlock then this is the place to eat, but very... More

after having eaten in a vast amount of places all over the country and including some supposedly upmarket I found this albeit small but fantastic fish shop that also has award winning pies the freshness of the fish and lightness of the batter is far the best I have ever had in the last 35 years and I have eaten...

... Last day of our holiday in Porlock so decided a treat for tea. A chip supper, the food was made to order but did not deliver on taste. Frozen chips cheap sausages.Sub standard and ruined our last supper in Porlock - don't waist your money!

I am sorry that you feel the need to write that we are terrible! However our chips are not frozen and the sausages we use are from a supplier that supplies all the fish and chip shops in the country. More

Fish is always fresh, batter crispy and chips great. Try if in porlock. The only down thing is you have to pre book your take away

Stopped in for supper, Food great Fish and Chips very good, Venison pie was also excellent, service very quick and friendly. It seems everyone was coming in for their take away fish and chips. I would highly recommend a visit.

A very small restaurant offering lovely fish and chips and superb 'award winning pies'. I was longing to try beef madras pie but the lure of a big fat cod was too much. Great food and super personal service from the friendly owner. Do book to be certain of a table.
