The Flying Scotsman (Steam Engine) Full English

This was an unexpected treat. My lovely wife, (along with @outinbrum – our foodie friends), arranged a surprise breakfast for me on the most famous steam train in the world, The Flying Scotsman.     As an old bugger, I remember the type of carriage that we ate in. It was old, a bit musty, had that weird bench seating that you are lucky to get these days. Apparently, it was made in Birmingham in 1960, by MetroCammell. The things

An excellent breakfast – but…. At one point, the chef came out with a knife to cut open someones egg, (he requested it runny – it was nearly solid – yet the chef, holding the knife told us it WAS runny – it obviously wasn’t). The server was unbelievably rude – you would have thought that each of the ten of us had personally upset her. We had called the restaurant a week earlier to let them know that the

Fig and Olive Full English, Middleton

Fig and Olive Full English Breakfast
Firstly, it is in a garden centre. This I thought would mean that the breakfast was going to be awful, but actually, it was a great breakfast. There was a single problem with the Full English, that was that it had hard poached eggs – which was a real shame. Packington sausage & bacon, black pudding, mushrooms, roast tomatoes, baked beans, sourdough toast & hen’s eggs 8.95. Lovely setting. Quality ingredients
