The ordering process at Mother Mash is dead simple:
Step 1: Choose your mash from 6 different options - I went for Champ Mash: Traditional Irish mash with milk, butter, cheddar cheese and spring onions.
Step 2: Choose your main from 8 different sausage options, or 6 pie options - I went for Aberdeen Angus Steak Pie.
Step 3: Choose your gravy from 5 different options - I went for Traditional : Simple gravy using the juice from sausages and vegetables.
And within 5-10 minutes, you selection appears in front of you. Clearly, the emphasis here is on the mash, which I had "Mashed = velvety smooth", as opposed to "Bashed = textured".
In a nutshell...
And the verdict? Well the mash was alright, certainly better than your run-of-the-mill pub, and better than EAT down the road...if that's the competition. But let's not be under any illusions that this is some divine, super smooth, out-of-this-world mash, or anything remotely of the sort. For supposed mash specialists, I was a tad disappointed in fact. Having said that, the pie and gravy was decent, as were the prices, so it made for a reasonable, above average, repeatable, weekday lunchtime meal. Nothing more, nothing less.
