Piggy in the Middle is very popular, so if you want to eat in, book well in-advance. The food served is very tasty, good quality and prepared fresh to a high standard. The proprietors have been running this establishment for years and it shows. The service is excellent and if you are in Porlock during an evening, give Piggy in... More

Visited and placed an order for 7 people. After I ordered the kitchen was closed for an hour as they had got to busy so we were lucky to get out order in. The only fish available was cod. The only sausages available were battered. They do not take card payments even for a higher amount. You can sit in... More

Yesterday evening after days of beautiful sunny evenings we hit Porlock in the drizzle. :-( Thank goodness for this restaurant. So excited to see such a huge choice of vegetarian pies. When told it would be a 15 minute wait was hopeful for a crisp cooked pie with the chips and was certainly not disappointed! Fantastic take away and honestly... More

Had a couple of takeaways from here, excellent fish and chips and a large selection of delicious pies. Lovely friendly service. Often busy so may be best to phone with order although never had to wait more than 15 minutes.

This is a small restaurant that also provides take away food. We had wonderfully fresh fish and chips but they also have a good selection of pies (e.g. pulled pork). Cooked to order and open on Sunday.

Ate here twice during our visit to Porlock after seeing the good reviews. We decided to try the take-away on our first night and although the food was good, they got our take away order wrong which we only discovered when we'd walked back to the campsite. Later during our stay we decided to try sitting in the restaurant. Be... More

We were hoping for fish and chips one night but spotted the local chippy was closed, the friendly locals in the tea room next to the chippy pointed us in the direction of this restaurant that offers takeaways, we were not disappointed, great chips and superb fish. Worth a visit if you are in Porlock!!

We arrived in Porlock late on a Friday night, family all hungry. Having read good reviews about piggy in the middle on trip advisor we headed there for some fish and chips. It is easy to find on the Main Street. There were no free tables but they have a take away service which was great. We asked to see... More
