Breakfast

“Never work before breakfast. If you have to work before breakfast, get your breakfast first.” – Josh Billings, American Humourist (1818-1885)

You can pre-order your breakfast by clicking here (you will need the password supplied in your pre-arrival confirmation email).

Start your day with your choice of tea or coffee, indulge in cereal, fruit juice, yoghurts with fruit purée, fresh fruit cup and freshly baked pastries. Follow on with a full (or partial) English Breakfast prepared using local farm produce. Alternatively, you may prefer one of our classic egg dishes such as ‘Eggs Benedict’, ‘Eggs Royale’ or ‘Eggs Florentine’ served with warm, home-made Hollandaise sauce. We also do a ‘Full Vegetarian’ Breakfast, which is also available as a vegan option. Finish it off with toast and a selection of local honey and home-made jams (strawberry, blackcurrant, raspberry) with ingredients from our vegetable garden – and you will be prepared to face whatever the day may have in store.

Present Covid Precautions and beyond…

We have replaced the breakfast table (previous guests will recall our beautiful twin pedestal walnut dining table which made meals in this room a shared experience) with five square tables each 90cm x 90cm, which is considerably larger than most restaurants offer. So now you can enjoy your meals without feeling obliged to talk with other diners, although this is still encouraged.

The sideboard with its display of breakfast accompaniments (cereals, fruit, yoghurts, pastries, fruit juice, home-made preserves) has been substituted by our online ordering system. Not only does this make food service safer it also means zero waste, which in turn means a smaller waist for us as we don’t have the temptation to eat left over pastries etc.
