Went here for breakfast with a group of 7. Chose Hog's Breath based on the price of the breakfasts on offer which we all thought was very reasonable.

We were hungry and wanted to order our breakfast at the same time as our coffees - this seemed to fluster the waiter. When the coffees came out we asked which ones were double shot (which we had ordered) and the waiter said, "They're all pretty much the same." They also don't do coffees on soy or flavoured coffees.

One of the girls was lactose intolerant and tried to order a coffee on soy but couldn't so went next door to the coffee club to order a takeaway coffee - when she brought it back she was told she wasn't allowed to have it but they would let her do it 'this time'.

Some of the poached eggs were runny and others had hard yolks - overall the quality of the food was fairly inconsistent.

Next time, I'd stick to Hog's Breath for what they are good at - dinner.

“Disappointing dinner”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Service was quick. Kids enjoyed the ribs. My husband and I both ordered their famous prime rib fillet however the steaks that arrived were extremely poor quality cuts - with large proportion of fat and gristle - not at all like the pictures in the menu or what we have previously experienced at other Hogs Breaths. Inedible. Manager passed the buck and blamed the supplier!

“Good food and fast service”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We went here on a Tuesday night out of season and it was still very busy. Although there was no problem with getting a table, I would make sure I booked next time. Service was fast and professional and with a sense of humour thrown in. The food was good, what I would expect from a Hogs Breath. We really really enjoyed the ribs to share and the sticky date pudding was also good.

Just average - a steak a jacket potato an over enthusiastic waitress who has to be that way as part of her job - sad I felt sorry for the wait staff
