From Their Website:

BRUNCH

Our brunch menu is as local as you can get. All of our meat is 100% free-range, outdoor-reared and grass-fed, supplied by Roger Brown’s of Harborne. Our locally sourced eggs are from happy, free-range hens. Our sour dough bread is baked fresh for us by Jam Vs Custard.

BREAKFAST BOARD (FOR ONE: 9 FOR TWO: 17)

Homemade Merguez sausages, homemade chorizo, smoked black pudding, fried or poached eggs, sourdough toast with home made baked beans.

SMOKED SALMON AND SCRAMBLED EGGS (9)

Sourdough toast, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.

Thats enough of quoting from their menu. I expect that it will change shortly, as the breakfast that I enjoyed was too big and not balanced enough. In thier defence, it was the first ever attempt at breakfast – and to be honest it was very good.

This looks like a big breakfast. Its not. Its much bigger than that. It is Massively meat stacked, yet bizarrely, without any bacon?

Homemade Merguez sausages, (North African Spiced Lamb – really good), homemade chorizo, (lovely), smoked black pudding, (for me it was a bit too smoked and a little soft) perfectly poached eggs, sourdough toast with home made baked beans. The eggs were served on a slightly greasy home made rosti. As you can see in the picture below, it was a bit to meat heavy. I suggested a single of each sausage and a slice of bacon. Perhaps a half tomato to add a bit of acidity. The sourdough toast was excellent.

Breakfast was too much for me to cope with. I left a sausage and some rosti. For those that know me, they will understand that this is very unusual – they will also know that it must have been a seriously big breakfast.

My good lady wife, had the salmon and poached egg. She said it was excellent.

Would I recommend this place – definitely. Is it perfect? absolutely not, but with a few tweeks, it could be a great breakfast, rather than just a good one.
