Brockley fish and beer mash-up Mondays

From November 24th, Brockley Road fish and chip restaurant Brockley's Rock will be doing Beer Batter Mondays. They say:

"We'll be collaborating with the much loved Brockley Brewery and are honoured to be using their Pale Ale for the batter. On Monday evenings, 4pm – 10pm, we'll be offering a Pale Ale Beer Batter as a special for those who enjoy the taste of an ale infused bitter batter. The Beer batter can be used with any of our fried fish.

"This compliments our growing specials menu which contains regular variations of homemade fishcakes as well as a Gluten-Free menu on Tuesdays. Over the last few weeks, the demand for Beer Batter has increased considerably. With many of our twitter followers suggesting that we collaborate with a local brewery to create a tasty new batter, we felt that the Brockley Brewery was a great choice to work with due to their amazing reputation and great tasting beer.

"Those who do not drink alcohol for personal or religious reasons will be pleased to know that we use a separate pan for beer battered fish."

Please tell me this is not "the really exciting news"?

But of course it is!

It doesn't get much better than this in Brockley: two local businesses finding synergy and creating a wholly original new product. It helps to solve the mystery that perplexes many of us as we stare at our fish supper: what is in the batter? Now we know and I am sure the new beer flavoured recipe will be a hit with the customers.


However an important question remains: can I get a bottle of Brockley beer to go with the beer battered fish and chips in the Brockleys Rock to compete the dining experience?

I've dined at this fish and chip shop several times - it's no more than tolerable (I don't mean that in a disparaging way, it's just a fish and chip shop) what they put in the batter will make little difference

I beg to differ. I've lived in the area for 20 years and have tried various fish and chip shops. I sometimes use the one in Ladywell which is very friendly with generous portions - but nothing like as good as Brockley's Rock, which has a lovely busy buzz and the staff - in my experience - are always friendly. Also, as someone with kids, I love that they do kids portions of fish and chips at a reasonable price. Their house salad is a great alternative to chips with your fish - try it! I eat-in there about once a month and rate it highly. Clearly any fish and chips shop is only that - and if you want higher-end dining you walk along the road to some of Brockley's other excellent establishments!

Their calamari is da bomb

I agree, they have the fish and chip formula just right. It is simple, tasty food and it seems to be a well run and efficient. I wish Brockley had some more places like this, which people actually frequent rather than some of the other restaurants that seem to survive without really being bothered by customers. Figure that one out....

I've never actually been but keep meaning to. We live 2 minutes from Fishy Business and always get our crispy cod from there. Will definitely give it a try.

I've always found Fishy Business to be more honest with their fare

Ah, I was referring to Brockleys Rock.
Fishy business? Too small.

size matters said...

Whereas Fish business....is small and has no tables.
