“Nice way to start the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Stayed at Premier Inn a few steps away down the Belgrave Road. Couldn't face one of the big breakfasts offered by the Premier Inn on one of our two nights' stay, so followed the advice on Trip Advisor to give 'The Singing Kettle' a try. One of the options was a mini-breakfast that suited us just fine. Decent cup of coffee, pleasant surroundings, friendly staff. Would definitely re-visit and are only too sorry not to have tried out the recommended Cream Tea, but just didn't have the time during our short stay. Having said that - it was offered to us at around 9.30 am!

Second year visit and food even better than before. Truly the best cream tea in the area. Staff friendly with excellent service. Likely back next year too.

“Relaxed and personal service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We used the singing kettle 4 days out of 5 for a cooked breakfast whilst staying at the Premiere Inn a couple of doors away.
The food was obviously freshly cooked and exactly how we asked it to be. We found it to be good value and very tasty, served quickly and by pleasant, polite people.
100% better than the ghastly breakfasts served at the Beefeater restaurant which adjoins the Premiere Inn.
Highly recommended.

“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Sat outside with our dog who was offered water by the waitress. I had the Brie and cranberry baguette and my husband had a veggie breakfast. Both were delicious! Service was great.
