    Default Loony pubco marketing nonsense

    Vintage Inns now do "Beer of the Day Battered Fish and Chips" and there's a blackboard to announce what the beer of the day in the batter is. I can only imagine that this must make a difference to someone somewhere and I suppose it does gull people into thinking that they reconstitute the batter mix on the premises.

    The Vintage Inn I was in yesterday (yes I know, but it was the first pub we went past with a navigable car park) proudly announced that the beer of the day batter was made from London Pride. But they didn't sell London Pride.....

    Seems the beer batter craze has taken off, is there any food pub that these days does not have beer battered fish [as opposed to just bog standard batter]

    When I do have pub grub I often go for the fish & chips offering, but I always assumed the beer used was dregs really. Can't say I could ever taste the difference in any of the beer batters I have had

    I made a batter with brewdog 5am Saint. Even after cooking you can smell and taste the beer. Beautiful

    If you are the nominated driver at this time of year do you get the bog standard battered fish at a reduced rate?

    Of course it does. But if it was battered and pre-cooked six months ago in a factory 150 miles away you'd be lucky to get it to taste of anything.

    I agree. I try to avoid things like that - so at JDW I'd never have a fish, or after the last steak (after 3 attempts at getting a 'rare' steak and not succeeding). Don't mind their burgers though - can't go wrong with the burger and pint. Their spag bol wasn't too bad either actually, just too small a portion for a chubby like me

    I suppose they picked it because they don't sell Pride. So as not too be accused of using the leftovers at the end of the barrel.

    Surely, if you're using beer to 'batter' fish, it has to be Stella Artois?
