Spur of the moment choice for our party of 4 adults. Had to return later as all tables were busy but then ate in this small restaurant when it was no longer so. All of us had freshly cooked fish and chips which were very good - but no choice of type of fish. Service quick and friendly. Surprised to... More

Came down for a family holiday nearby and heard nothing but good things about this chip shop. Worst chip shop I have ever been too! Terrible customer service! Placed the order clearly and was given our food but was missing 3 portions of chips which we paid for so we went back to the shop and kitchen staff was shouting... More

I am sorry you think we are the worst chip shop you have ever visited but firstly let me say that we are not a chip shop! We are a restaurant that happens to serve takeaways too. You did not place your order clearly at all infact it was 2 orders for 2 separate families. The first order was for... More

Very pleased to hear that this place was dog-friendly and also had vegan food. Staff were friendly and helpful; service was prompt. Sadly the vegan food was horrible. Chips tasted as though they were frozen, and had been warmed up; uniquely for me, I couldn't eat them. The peas were tasteless and hardly warm. The pies, which were described as... More

I am sorry that you think our food is horrible?? The chips we use are not frozen and they were certainly not reheated. The peas are petit pois which we have been using for years and this is the first time we have had a complaint regarding their taste. I have personally eaten all of the vegan pies and could... More

We returned here a second night for dinner because we enjoyed the savory pies so much. It was very reasonably priced. It is a small place, so reservations highly recommended.

We went in on a Wednesday and was told there would be a 40 min wait, apparently Wed & Fri are always busy. We went back the next day and the cafe was empty. We had cod n chips, there is no choice of fish, the fish was delicious but the chips weren't anything special, have had much nicer chips... More

What could be more quintessentially English than the above mentioned foods. My husband and I tried this restaurant whilst visiting Porlock for a few days and we went back again the following night because the food was really delicious. The restaurant is very busy catering for take away as well and very reasonably priced for the excellent quality it serves.... More

We went to order fish and chips on a Saturday evening in August for a party of eight. Had we known we would have phoned it through first as there was a bit of a queue and the restaurant, which is quite small, was also full. Therefore we had to wait quite a while and even when we went back... More

Gorgeous place to eat, food was excellent. Only a small place and you probably should book, but it was the nicest fish and chips I have ever had
