Start the day as you mean to go on with a fresh, cooked-to-order breakfast. Indulge with a tasty full English breakfast – with locally sourced sausages and mouth-watering, thick-cut bacon – or perhaps you prefer locally smoked haddock, kippers or salmon slices with sunshine-yellow eggs cooked to your liking. If simplicity is more your style, try our delicious bowl of porridge topped with your choice of preserve or a little honey – the choice is yours. We also offer vegetarian and gluten-free sausages – just let your host know what you’d prefer when they take your order.
