Red Lion, Marston, Oxfordshire, Chippy Challenge #114   2 comments

Red Lion Marston fish and chips

 

[The Chippy Challenge: to eat more fish and chips in 2014; see original post for details.]

Fish: cod
Sides: chips and peas

Evaluation:  A light but still very tasty batter: I think there was plenty of baking powder in it or in the flour it was rolled in pre- or post-battering.  There was also a nicely sulfurous whiff to the aftertaste but not in the batter or fish itself (I reckon that is from the beer used for the batter.  The chips were spectacular as well and the tartar sauce ALMOST tempted me to ignore my aversion to mayonnaise as it was almost solid with fresh herbs.  Truly the Red Lion has one of the better pub fish and chips and could easily make the top ten if the peas were better (or mushy); this was my first lunch run here, but not my last.

Days since last: 4 (Robinson’s Traditional F&C, Bowerhill)
