I visited the old ship last weekend with my wife. We had a hard time finding it do to a self-inflicted google maps error. Parking was difficult, we found a place off the alley. It would have been difficult to park during the lunch or dinner rush. We were fortunate enough to have the place to ourselves. The staff was attentive, we were greeted well and served promptly. The beer was good. I felt at home.
Fullers London PrideI ordered my fish & chips and the waited. My foodgasm started about 8 minutes after I placed my order. I was taken back to my first taste of this wonderful food on the streets of Birmingham. The fish & chips were that good. My wife and I ate in silence. The sounds of eating were the only noises we made - except for "are you going to eat that?"
- Deep golden amber colour, hints of treacle toffee with a digestive biscuit flavour coming through. The hops contribute grapefruit flavours to the beer giving it zesty character. London Pride is a smooth and astonishingly complex beer with a distinctive malty base complemented by a rich balance of well-developed hop flavors from the Target, Challenger and Northdown varieties. ABV 4.7%
We (well... I really) finished with Sticky Toffee Pudding. You must try it.
I had a foodgasm today too, my first real bowl of pho. But more on that later...
