Port Erin Fish & Chips: The national dish...chips, cheese and gravy!
Whenever I visit the British seaside, I enjoy indulging in fish, chips and mushy peas.
However, when we visited Port Erin Fish & Chips during our day trip to the lovely seaside town of Port Erin in the Isle of Man in July 2009, we weren't actually looking for fish and chips...
We had read that the unofficial national dish of the Isle of Man is chips, cheese and gravy, so we were keen to sample this incongruous sounding combination!
For just a couple of Pounds, we purchased polystyrene trays filled with chips, melted cheese and beef gravy. We took them away with us and sat on a grass bank overlooking the long sandy beach.
They were delicious....and it's easy to see why this dish has become such a popular fast food choice in the Isle of Man.
The Bay Hotel: Good Food! Very Poor Management
This is a lovely looking pub with a lovely atmosphere. The food is reliably good and the bar staff are friendly apart from the bar manager who is unbelievably rude and devoid of personality, customer service skills or the ability to communicate politely. The food can take time but is worth the wait and the beer is excellent. This would be a real gem but for one key staff member who ruined a good night out.
Favorite Dish: We love the Fish and Chips.
