The Crown & Sceptre, Fitzrovia, London W1W 6SD, 26 June 2021
YO! I should be at the Glastonbury taking a part in the biggest and the best party of the world, but instead, I am in London sitting a quiet corner (behind a group of Italian lads) of The Crown & Sceptre, Fitzrovia.
Beer-battered Fish & Chips – pale ale battered cod, triple-cooked chips, minted crushed peas & tartare sauce for £14. This is standard now, though anticipating price hike – post COVID +/- delayed Brexit related inflation.
- Fish – Actually, not overcooked, the dark colour must be a reflection of “pale ale”. In fact, fish cooked perfectly, not dried, mouth wateringly juicy…. however, ohhhh so much salt on top of the fish…. why!?!?!? I cannot get rid of them as there were so much of them, hanging on to rough surfaces of very crunchy batter, in the end I have to remove all batter. What a shame!
- Chips – Definitely triple cooked, delicious ! Good portion size, wash down with cold beer hearing Italian boys shouting! Heaven!
- Minted crushed peas – Odd, too odd, there were hint of garlic, completely, offensively wrong combination of mint and pea.
Surrounded by some enthusiastic group of people – could not stop feel emotional, football competition, Glastonbury, beer, fish and chips, cheering voices, smily bar staff…..
