This is a first time visit for the British Breakfast Club. Its a reasonably new place, having only been open for a year or so. Renato Lounge is named after the 1970’s Italian singer, one part of Rene and Renato, who shot to number 1 in the charts with Save Your Love, (enjoy(?) it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7EnYrW0oQM ).

Its designed like their other places that you will find from Bristol to Brum. Spacious, lots of sofas and a decent menu. The last of these ‘Lounge’ group I reviewed managed a rather uninspiring 5 fried eggs. Today, I armed with my British Breakfast Club RECOMMENDED window stickers, I hoped for something I could recommend. Sadly, it wasnt up to the standard required, (which is 8 fried eggs or more).

I ordered the Large breakfast, (Big Lounge Breakfast), my dining partner ordered the Feta and Avocado Eggs, (Avacado, poached eggs, whipped feta cheese with harissa on sour dough).

The Avo and eggs was OK. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly but not properly refreshed, meaning that they were still cold – which was a shame.

The Full English was big. 2 pieces of smoked bacon, cooked well. 2 Gloucester Old Spot sausages, (again cooked well – but really lacking in flavour?), 3 hash browns, a small tinned mug of baked beans, 2 halves of roasted tomato, the thinnest slice of black pudding I have ever seen, button mushrooms and perfectly cooked fried eggs. This came with 2 slices of toast. The plate it came on was massive. So big that I thought it made the breakfast look a bit to spaced out.

The place was lively, it is nicely decorated, but although the Full English Breakfast of Renato Lounge was better than that at the Quinto Lounge, I cant recommend it as its just OK. 6 eggs.
