Horrible Fish & Chips at The Round Table in London, England

Over the week end we were in London, we were walking around Covent Garden, when we decided that it was time to entertain our stomachs! We decided to go to a Pub to enjoy some traditional food. We ended up at The Round Table located on St Martins Court. Nice traditional pub with a particular smell that clearly indicates that there is a lot of beer around...

So we go there and they told us that we have to order at the bar (the table next to us did not know and we had to tell them as they were wondering why nobody was taking care of them).

So I decided to order Fish & Chips. They had the traditional one made with cod and proposed a larger version called...the Cod Father!

After a long, long time, our food arrived!
The Fish & Chips I ordered was made with cod and was served with fries, peas and tartare sauce.

This was horrible! The peas had no taste; the fries were mushy and the fish was terrible! The batter was oily and not cooked all the way through and the fish was probably frozen. The tartare sauce not only looked weird, but also tasted weird. This was disgusting!

Jodi's sandwich was not better!

It was a cheddar and pickle sandwich. The pickle overpowered the cheese. I think I only enjoyed the bread. So bad.

That was so disappointing! Next time, I will pass my way! And by the way, the table I mentioned before that did not know you had to order at the bar was still waiting for the food when we left...

Enjoy (the photos)!

We went to see the play Tarragona from our friend Gary Giovannetti (yes, yes! I am advertising for it as this was a great moment and Gary is very talented! Although this post comes a bit late as it is not playing anymore: we went on the last day). After the play and some Cava (champagne) & cheese, we decided to all go to The Houndstooth Pub nearby. If I go to a pub, I will either order a sandwich or fish & chips.

So, I ordered the cheeseburger (cheddar cheese).

It was a big juicy black angus patty made with a nice char. You could definitely see that they press on the patty when they cook it. It was served on a toasted bun. 
The fries were steak fries (not my favorite: I prefer a regular cut) that were good also.

Jodi ordered the fish & chips.

The fish, cod, was well cooked and flaky. I liked it!

It was overall well cooked, although it missed a bit of crunchiness. I in fact preferred the fish & chips from the cheeseburger.

It was a good dinner. I never think about going to pubs for dinner: maybe I should revisit that....

Enjoy (I did)!
