MULBERRY BUSH, London SE1 9PP, 27 June 2014
Hello Friday! Time to wash out all the crap with chilled cheeky pints at Mulberry Bush, London SE1. Sun is out, people are out, pub’s windows + doors are wide open, I can feel Happy Friday vibe everywhere.
Nice one! Simple language (except triple cooked chips, what is this meaning? Fried 3 times?), and classic HADDOCK, not HAKE. £11 is OK price for the location, Mulberry Bush, Southbank, a minute from Thames.
1. Fish. 5/10. Haddock was juicy and not overcooked. However, a big however, batter was kind of “wet”. Felt greasy. Points are all dedicated to the quality of haddock. What a shame!!
2. Chips. 4/10. What is “triple cooked” all about? Felt slightly raw and lukewarm in the middle. I know this texture. yes, undercooked frozen oven chips.
3. Pea. 3/10 Yes it was mashy pea but straight from the tin.
As soon as I saw fish shaped dish, I knew it. Overall 4/10. I won’t be back I am afraid. Also, there were at least 5 dining tables empty all night but all booked (I confirmed booked sign with names on them). And staff did not seem bothered. Strange!!
My journey of fish and chips critic continues. Good night!!
