We drove down to beautiful, wild and windy Dungeness to be swept along the coast by savage winds and seduced by her raw austere beauty, unlike anywhere else in the UK. BUT, the real reason we drive there is to taste the impeccable fish and chips at the Pilot, the famous pub on the coast recognised as the best fish and chips in the land.
Each mouthful of freshly battered cod or hake is soft, light, flakey and delectable. The entire pub is full of people there to sample the fish which comes encased in a light crispy batter laying on a huge bed of chunky chips, hot and satisfying after the cold of the windy coastal walks. naturally the portions are massive. A regular serving hangs off the plate precariously. You have to see the large serving to believe it, absoloutely massive for a monster appetite. Too divine!
No tiny side of mushy peas here. You get a full big bowl to indulge in. And when you’re done, take another brisk walk to wear it off a little before heading back to London, a belly full of fish and happy as can be.
