    This was real good. I did need to add a bit more beer to make the batter right.  -  07 May 2013


    I made this last night and my men loved it; so did I. It was way better than fish shop fish and it was so crisp! Thank you for sharing!! Jilly  -  30 Apr 2016


    Used this batter recipe for cod and I must say it was simple and the best I have made, I used lager beer cos that was all I had, not sure what the best beer to use but this was fine 5 star  -  10 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
