Sitting Duck in Long Branch

Went over to Broadway for a midweek fix of Portuguese BBQ ,but my regular place was closed.As a last resort we decided to give the Sitting Duck a second chance after a previous boring visit a few months back.It is only tonight that I realised that it is linked to the Pour House?Had I known,I wouldn't have bothered.I tried the Fish & chips.Sad frozen chips with an excellent piece of lightly batted fish.Unfortunately the fish was just slightly under done and was sent back.This IMO should have been a signal that they had a customer who at the very least expected thier food to be served cooked.I understand the delicate balance of preparing fish,but hey this is one dish the English perfected well before the arrival of Ramsey,Marco and the Roux Bros.Well it came back to me as returned - the same broken piece of battered fish,but flashed under the the grill ! I said nothing and will never return.Batter is a protective coating.They screwed up my order and didn't replace it ( Or offer to )Why are these places still in business?Mindless Monmouth mediocrity prevails.
