We only used the take away option during our stay as we had hired a lovely cottage just a minutes walk away. The fish and chips are exceptional and they also have a great range of really tasty quality pies. The service is excellent. You need to order in advance and they have it ready exactly on time when you... More

After a walk from Bossington we stopped off at Piggy in the Middle for a light lunch. The member of staff who greeted us was attentive, friendly and gave us some great tips on the local area. The food was fresh the service was quick and it was great value for money. Highly recommend.

We popped in on a Saturday afternoon to pick up some fish and chips to take away. We were greeted immediately by a friendly young man who took our order and chatted to us while we waited. He was very efficient and enthusiastic and had places to recommend to us in the surrounding area. The food was very tasty, batter... More

This not a normal fish and chip takeaway - It is a restaurant that does take aways, and has many cosy covers for eating in. Each order is cooked seperately to order - no piled-up pieces waiting for the next customer to come in. At busy times this means you can be left to wait - or not able to... More

We were on holiday in Porlock and found ourselves going there several times. Paul the owner and his family have a terrific sense of humour, like myself he is a great fan of Fawlty Towers, I hope he wont mind me saying there is a teeny bit of Basil in him. The food here is lovely, all properly prepared with... More

We had 2 meals here whilst staying in Porlock and really enjoyed both. This is a small, cosy, friendly place, very popular and usually busy so it's best to book if you want to be sure of a table. The takeaway is busy as well. The fish is excellent,the batter is so light and crispy - yummy. The pies are... More
