Had scrambled eggs on toast with a slice of bacon and a coffee. The coffee was some instant crap. The eggs were brilliant, bacon average for round here. If you are a tea drinker then I can recommend but if you like a cup of coffee avoid at all cost.

Has to be said, this place does a fabulous English Breakfast. I've been a couple of time before and the standard is as good as ever. The bar gets really busy so be prepared to wait for food - and drinks if there's some sport on - but well worth it.
