Breakfast ok but sausages not so great..steak with breakfast tasted ok but had no colour to it (medium) fried slice soggy. Beans good...overall not the best cooked breakfast...if you served Cumberland sausages and made steak with breakfast look more advertising it would have been great.

The breakfast was lukewarm and tasted like it had been cooked some time before. Eggs were smallest I've ever had. Basic breakfast didn’t come with toast, which was extra £1.25. All in all it was overpriced, cold and unappetising. However the worst part wasn’t the...More
