Causeway Full English Breakfast – Lichfield

Lichfield is a quaint place. Its historical and on a super sunny Sunday on a bank holiday weekend, I found myself there at breakfast time. The perfect opportunity to sit out in the sun and enjoy what I still think is the best meal on the planet; a Full English Breakfast.

My wife and I got an outdoor table and ordered. 2 pots of tea arrived and then the breakfasts, (1 veggie and 1 standard).

The vegarian breakfast came with Quorn sausages, (not the best according to the better half, she prefers Cauldron branded ones). She said that her breakfast was ‘ok’. I asked her to be more descriptive, she upgraded it to ‘nice’. She did point out though that the chef here used a deep fat fryer a lot.

Initially, my breakfast looked good. Then you notice that the mushrooms were deep fried, as were the sausages.

I am not sure what brand of sausages they were, however they were certainly some of the cheapest sausages I have eaten, (I left one of the sponge like items as even I draw the line somewhere).

Breakfast was a standard affair, 2 deep fried sausages, (awful),  2 fried eggs, (pale yolks), deep fried mushrooms, deep fried hash brown, black pudding, (I think was deep fried but went all mushy), 2 bacon, (pretty decent), 2 toast and a thick slice of tomato – which I had no idea how was cooked?

In summary, breakfast was not good. Sure, it filled a slot, however it was done with ingredients that you would expect at a travelling fairground – one with no expectation of repeat business. And my wife was right, the chef certainly knew his/her way around a deep fat fryer.
