The Lock Tavern, Camden Town, London NW1 8AJ, 13 January 2022
A happy new year to you all! A year of the Tiger! Here we are at the Lock Tavern, Camden Town. After all those years, there still is something exciting about going out on school nights! This pub is a part of the East London Pub Co.
Even more exciting being here is their own “Eat out to help out” in their selected pubs. I was emailed with the statement “Cure those January blues with 50% off food” – I gotcha!
- Fish : 8/10 Delicious! Thick flesh was juicy – perfectly “not overcooked”, soft flesh gently fall apart in my mouth while hot batter was crunchy – great marriage of 2 textures. Only minor point – Could not see the significance of “camden pale beer battered”
- Chips : 7/10 They are not chips, they are fries. But there were lots and seasoned perfect to my liking, very very satisfactory
- Minted peas: 8/10 Delicious! Smooth puree like texture, beautiful green colour is the great accent to this “brown dish”, very battery – guilty pleasure! Give me more!
I so enjoyed them, piping hot fresh fish and chips in the cold dark January night, my stomach was warm, my body was warm – made me so content – very very comfort. And it’s 50% off – but we are helping !
Now writing this – my mouth is becoming watery – Thank you Lock Tavern!
