The Griffin, London, N20 9HH, 22 August 2014

Hello! Friday before bank holiday weekend.  Nothing like celebrating with a cold pint at The Griffin, N20.

Wow, this is a cool pint!

Wow, this is a cool pint!

I can tell you, this is THE COLDEST Amstel pint I ever had.  Great to crunch my thirst, very smooth, well executed.  However, after about a few minutes, doubt started to creeping up.  Hang on, this beer is actually TOO COLD.  So much so, I cannot actually taste the beer.  Oh well, still, better than flat Amstel which I often find.  Also soooo many people celebrating something (e.g., birthdays, fridays etc). it got soooooo noisy, we had to leave to dining area…. Thought I was at the Weatherspoon in somewhere a bit rough…. I swear though I am not posh!

Fish and chips, Beer battered fillet of ethically sourced haddock with chips & mushy peas £9.95

Fish and chips, Beer battered fillet of ethically sourced haddock with chips & mushy peas £9.95. Average Zone 4 pricing.

Lovely presentation but not too keen on the dish, felt like eating from my bathroom floor.

1. Fish  4/10… AHHHHH!!! this goooey batter.  I knew I had this somewhere, it was at the CATCHER in the RYE.  what a shame!!!! Fish itself was nice but cannot give you any higher score, unforgivable mistake! 2.  Chips 5/10  Delicious.  Nothing wrong except only about 12 of them. 3.  Mushy peas 5/10.  Yes it was mushy peas.  Any twist? Mmmmm. overall 5/10.  This harsh marking considering the fact that you did not make me full.  It is very unusual of me not to feel full after fish and chips with beer.  I attributed this for stingy portion of chips.  I actually had to order a pudding.  Give my my £5 back (cost of pudding)!!! I won’t be rush going back there I am afraid.  I actually know only time I will go back will be at very very hot British Summer day to taste your cold beer, so won’t be soon! good night!
