Mountbatten Hotel, Haymarket

I've reviewed the Mountbatten Hotel before, but today we had the famous fish and chips, of which I've raved on about so many times before.

Fish and chips $7.00 (on Tuesdays with drink purchase)
Fresh fish fillet with chips and tartare sauce

Fish with salad (by request)

Unfortunately the fish and chips are definitely not as good as they used to be. I remember the fish used to be two huge fillets--now you seem to get three small baby pieces, which makes the fish a little greasier with more batter by proportion.

However the batter is still fairly light, and you can still taste the beer in the batter. The tartare sauce is still good but not as garlicky as it used to be (which is probably a good thing for non-garlic lovers).

At a mere $7.00 though, who's being picky. The place is light and airy, service is friendly and they have Coopers and James Squire ales on tap. A fair wine list too, imported beers and ales by the bottle as well.

Still one of our favourite watering holes down this end of town.
