The fish and chips were so good I went back 3 times in 4 days. I also tried the steak & Ale pie , but the menu was varied , I just had to repeat the fish & chips. The seating area is small, so reservation is a good idea. The service was 100% - dogs were welcome. AND they... More

We were camping in Porlock for the long Bank Holiday weekend and had arrived Thursday afternoon. We decided on a pub meal that evening but thought some chips the following night might be nice to supplement our camping food so my son took a photo on his phone of the takeaway menu and phone number so we could pre-order. At... More

I am sorry that you feel the need to write a review stating that we are terrible. We do our utmost to supply food to every customer, however we are a very small establishment and I as the owner and cook have been cooking approx 120 meals in the 4 hours that we are open so it is hardly surprising...

The best fish and chips I've had. Batter was fresh and light, fish tasted amazing, massive portions and the local beer was fun to drink! Obviously it depends on your company that you keep, but being with my girlfriend and eating in the place was the start of a brilliant night in the village. The chef was very friendly; discussing...

Called in on 11-8.14. What a treat. I had Venison Pie and chips. My partner had large fish and chips. It beat her she couldn't eat it all. The food was to die for. Probably the best meal we had. The place was so busy they were turning customers away. People were waiting for 30 minutes for takeaway. Would definately... More

I am always happy to wait for good food. This was an occasion where they were so busy, I gave my order and they asked me to return to collect in 20 mins (which turned out to be 40 mins). I was happy to do so. The fish and chips were perfect, cooked to order, fresh and as they should... More

After a long hike along the epic Exmoor coastline what more could you want that generous portions of fish and chips (perfectly cooked, crisp thin batter, melt in your mouth fish) or one of their numerous choices of home-made pie (from classic steak and ale to venison in a rich red wine sauce, delicious!) all served with lashings of gravy...

We walked into Porlock from our B&B and could not decided on dinner (lots of choice)! We decided to have fish & chip here and have no regrets! The pies also looked yummy! Service was fast and friendly. I went for small fish & chips and it tasted awesome! A quirky little restaurant or take away that is well priced,... More

Went here as a random choice as the place we had intended to go to was actually miles away! It's a funny little cafe / front room type arrangement, but with quite a few tables reserved... I ordered a large cod, it was so much better than expected. Thin crispy batter and probably the best bit of cod ever, such... More
