The Olde Nook – Lichfield

The Olde Nook is just as you would imagine. Its a very old building that sits in a row of very old buildings next to the stunning Lichfield Cathedral. We ate outside on a beautiful sunny spring morning. I chose a Full English Breakfast. We were served by a super […]

Coast Cafe Bar and Bistro – Lizard, Cornwall

So after spending lots of time down in Cornwall, I thought I ought to go and check some not so local breakfast spots out. In this instance, the cafe/bar/bistro we stopped at lists itself as the most southerly Full English Breakfast in the United Kingdom. In thier defence, its just […]

Oyster Club – Special Event Breakfast – 2021

It had been over 5 years since the BBC managed to convince Adam Stokes, (owner of Adams and now Oyster Club), to colaborate with the British Breakfast Club. I was fortunate enough to run in to Adam again and he kindly volunteered his head chef, Rosie to organise the event. […]

Priory Hotel – Cartmel 2021

We found ourselves in the tiny village, (the home of sticky toffee pudding apparently?) after enjoying a ridiculously fancy meal at L’Enclume – somewhere we had wanted to try for years. I chose the Priory Hotel as they said that their breakfast was very good. They were right. Perfectly cooked […]

GRIDL – Newquay – 2021

The lockdowns have finished (?) – we are in a more open society and we still need breakfasts. I have spent a lot of time in Cornwall over the lockdowns – but becuase of the lockdowns, I havent been able to get out there and enjoy any breakfasts. A week […]

Mud Dock Cafe – Bristol – 2020

We are in a pandemic. The world is going slightly mad. I am in Bristol and I need breakfast. Having been let down by local foodie facebookers, I went back to a place I had tried before, becuase it was a good weather forcast and I know we were booked […]

Smokey Joes - Cornwall - Large Full English Breakfast

Smokey Joes – Redruth

Its been far too long since our last review. Corona Virus has sort of buggered it up a bit. But here is some good news. A good review, from a proper old school truck stop cafe that serves a cracking breakfast, complete with hogs pudding, (its a bit of a […]

Grand Central Kitchen - Full English with lemon

Grand Central Kitchen – Birmingham

Several people have recommended the Full English Breakfast at this place to me, so I took a 45 minute journey with my fellow reviewer Chris Lowe to sample their wares. Chris has eaten there several times before and tried to explain to me what it was like – but even […]

Stones Cafe - Weston Super Mare - Lifeboat Breakfast

Stones Cafe – Weston-Super-Mare

Firstly, its a beautiful building, sticking out into the ‘sea’ at Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset. Secondly, I didnt take enough pictures. Its a big place, we went to the left where they were setting up for someone’s 50th birthday brunch, (a great idea). The table was large, round but a little […]

Chelle’s Deli Cafe, Mirfield

Dont be put off by this ugly 1970’s building, (which used to be a garage, apparently?) It was a Sunday morning, after a great Saturday night. The type of night when only a Full English Breakfast will do. We were advised that Chelle’s was the place to go. 2 of […]

Cornmarket Cafe Bistro - Full English Breakfast - Warminster

Cornmarket Cafe and Bistro – Warminster

Set in Warminster, Wiltshire, the Cornmarket is a bit of an institution for the locals. Its owned and run by Adele, who is quite a character. I was told in no uncertain terms that she only uses Heinz Ketchup and HP Sauce. I like Adele, (like the singer, ‘but dont […]

Full English Breakfast - One Castle Street B and B - Bakewell

One Castle Street B and B – Bakewell

Firstly, although this is a B and B and not a cafe, I am including it becuase I can. I am also including it becuase the biggest complaint(?) I have to give this breakfast is that the plates were square, meaning that someone commented that the breakfast wasn’t very big. […]

Regency Cafe - Full English Breakfast - That London

Regency Cafe – That London

What an absolute gem of a traditional greasy spoon. I went there at 07:00 and had to join a crew of electricians, builders, network engineers and locals. They were there becuase they knew what this place was about. Please consider that this is Westminster. One of the poshest areas of […]
