apologies, it was a ‘regular’; other choices were ‘large’ and ‘legendary’. price was a steep £9 or so.

Excuse my ignorance, but when you say the best ‘half’ sausage you’ve ever had - do you buy it like that or is that just the bit you had left when you took the pic?

Never had a proper takeaway in England/Wales (dunno if that’s where you live?) and every region varies in its customs obviously but I’ve never heard anyone irl talk about a half sausage. (That’s what she said etc)

My partner and I always split a sausage! It’s very sweet.

Thought it was some Northern English thing! Ordering a bonus half sausage to stir in your pie or some such.

This is what we do, even though secretly I’m hoping I get it all to myself (and quite often do).

8/10 for this from me.
Batter was good
Chips were good
Portion was good but could obviously have eaten more.

What am I doing in this darned thread once again? Needs some fishes and chipses now.

#592

Chips are overrated. Any more than 10-15 full sizers is excessive.

This looks great. Nice, light batter with a bit of give to it. Not the jagged, hardened mostrosities I’ve seen elsewhere in this thread. Not a lot of chips but two pieces of fish makes up for that.

Where’s the pickle?/10.

#594

I’m a salt and vinegar purist.

#595

I knew this would be the main criticism but there was a decent amount.

I don’t feel hungry and also don’t feel uncomfortably full.

Salt and Malt - Chew Magna, Bristol. Cod and chips, £11.50. Not enough chips, but the fish was great as were the peas.

No need to pile the fish on the peas but otherwise looks good

#598

Small plate innit

Hard done by on the sauce portion! Looks banging though

My mate must have had half my portion of sauce. Was loads in her pot.
