If you are drinking beer at the “Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem”, the oldest pub in England, then why not consume a plate of Fish and Chips to go with it?
There is no good answer as to why not, so I took the safe option and did just that.
Although it was quite tasty it was a pretty much tourist version of this dish, judging by the accents around the top room in the pub, I would guess that this place attracts many overseas visitors and I would lay a reasonable bet that they consume a fair amount of fish and chips on their trip to the Trip. It was good piece of battered haddock, the fish moist and juicy, the batter crispy. A small pot of mushy peas and tartare sauce were good, the chips a bit standard and not too exciting. The good thing was that it was not too large and so I was still able to drink a couple of decent beers to wash it down with.
