Cricketers Arms in Orlando, FL

Cricketers Arms Pub
I had dinner at a British pub called Cricketers Arms in Festival Bay on International Drive. I ate at the restaurant years ago, way back when they were in The Mercado Mall at the other end of I-Drive. If I remember correctly, they were one of the last businesses in the Mercado before it was demolished. Cricketers Arms moved and has been at it's current location for a few years now, and I finally returned to give them a try...

I wanted to try the Dubliners Bangers & Mash, featuring Irish sausage instead of English sausage (what's the difference?), but they apparently didn't have the Irish sausages. So that meant I ordered the Cricketers Bangers & Mash. This came with three sausage links topped with caramelized onions and a side of mashed potatoes. The meal was okay, but these were definitely not the best bangers & mash I've had. There was far too much grizzle in the sausages, hitting something hard every few bites. After seeing someone else order the Shepard's Pie, I think that may be a better choice here. It seemed like a bigger portion for a lower price and also came with a salad. Next time I suppose...

Just looking at that I would have been disappointed.

I think that looks very much like frozen sausages I have seen while I have been living in England. Disgusting :/
