The Mill Inn, Aldeburgh, Suffolk, IP15 5BJ, 28 March 2014
Hello from Suffolk, the territory of the ADNAMS. Southwold.
1. Fish 7/10. Good effort, but quite frankly, I cannot tell what is the distinctive feature in taste of being “ADNAMS batter”. Fish is firm and well, but started to feel a bit tasteless towards the end.
2. Chips 8/10. Not sure if this is frozen or home made. Who cares, it was well executed hot crunchy chip!!!
3. Peas. 5/10. Mushy, rather than puree. I could not taste mint but very buttery. Butter is a funny thing, it can be overwhelming. In this case, I enjoyed first 2 mouthful then started feel too much butter, unable to finish. Also needed a bit moisture as it felt “hard mash”.
Overall score though generous 7/10. Some sea salt was already sprinkled when served, thought it was nice touch.I did not have to add any salt, for my taste, it was perfect. What a found in this peaceful pretty Aldeburgh!!!
A bit sideways…. my starter prior to fish and chips….
