I ended up in Manchester on business and was fortunate enough to stay at King Street Townhouse. The breakfasts were as I would have expected at a place that was so high class.
The only problem was the lack of consistency. One day there was 2 poached eggs, the next there was 1. One day there was 1 sausage, the next there were 2. Not the worst things in the world to worry about, but never-the-less, not right.
Breakfast consisted of, (generally): 2 perfectly poached eggs, 2 bacon, 1 sausage, toast, tomato, mushroom and that dreaded flat leaf parsley!
Its not perfect, but its very good indeed. It gets the BBC Recommendation.
