We have just returned from a weekend camping in Porlock, we had a BBQ on the Friday and following a wander through Porlock on Saturday morning came across Piggy in the Middle. On looking at the menu boards outside we saw that it had a take away menu and that this would be available between 5-9pm - brilliant we thought, so off we went on a walk looking forward to our fish and chips later that evening. On return to our tent we decided to go for a pint at 6 pm and then go and get our fish and chips, so that we could enjoy them hot we got everything ready - knives and forks, plates, kitchen roll, salt and sachets of tartare sauce and ketchup, beers in the cool box - sorted! We then left the tent and went for a pint at the Ship Inn, just before 7pm we hot footed it to Piggy. On arrival, we walked into the restaurant and stated we would like a fish and chips to takeaway, the lady replied that they could not do this until 8pm. After a brief discussion bert and I decided that we did not want to wait an hour, we didn't know what to do, we had it all planned out, there was nothing else for it we returned to the Ship and had a very enjoyable fish and chips there, but were annoyed at Piggy for misleading potential customers!
Our message is simple:
If you say that you do takeaway please make sure you also make it clear that this may not always be available. Other reviewers have indicated that you need to pre-order earlier in the day and collect, but there is nothing that says this on the board outside. We would have done this had we known! It must also be really annoying for customers sitting in, having people walking in all the time!
We did not get a chance to taste any fish and chips so this is by know means a review of the food, trouble is I don't think we would go here or recommend it after this experience.
