Excellant Breakfasts

The breakfasts here are great for the price. You actually get plenty of tea and table service too. Many places offer buffet style for the same price. Its in the quieter part of the high street but gets quite busy so appears quite popular

Another excellent breakfast hit the proverbial spot today. The food in this cute, family run cafe is tip top. Do try the home-made malt loaf. Open Sunday's too.

What an excellent breakfast. It was just like having a cooked breakfast at home. Very friendly service, great value for money, and superb English breakfast.

A great British cafe. The "Full Monty" breakfast is legendary. Try the home made cakes too. This is a real, local, family enterprise and the atmosphere is great. Open Sunday's.

The full monty breakfast at just under £6 must be the best value breakfast in town.A plate full of breakfast favourites steaming hot, plus toast and a proper mug of tea.
