I have been asked a few times by the Wellington Hotel to try out their breakfast. After a rather enjoyable evening, the night before, a Full English was exactly what I needed. Its an unusual place. A handsome building, stood proudly on the corner of Birmingham’s Gay District, on the […]
The weather was awful today, so instead of going for a 30 mile bike ride, I went for a Full English breakfast instead. The Red Lion is a pub in a village near Tamworth, set right on the Fazeley canal, (so its fantastic for drinking outside in the summer). […]
On a trip to Lichfield, I popped in to Damn Fine Cafe to find out what their breakfasts were like. The answer is OK. The breakfasts here are not going to change the world, however, if you are after a greasy spoon, (all be it an upmarket one), then the […]
On a trip to www.fixedwheelbrewery.co.uk, we stopped by at Wendy’s Salt and Pepper Pots. It was quite difficult to find, and very homely, when you got inside. This place is famous locally becuase of the salt and pepper pots that appear everywhere, (not just on the tables). They are really […]
I noticed this place on a recent trip to Halesowen to meet a friend. Not wanting to miss out, the following day, 4 of us went to see how good the breakfasts are. Firstly, its not trying to be anything but a greasy spoon. Its the first place that I […]
A mediocre breakfast. 2 greasy sausages, 2 slightly undercooked bacon, beans, mushrooms, a fried egg, toast and a hash brown. There are plastic sheets covering doilly type table cloths. I didn’t feel particularly clean.
A hearty breakfast, great value, (the photo doesn’t do it justice). 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 eggs, (OK one of them was broken), loads of sautéed potatoes, beans and toast. A big portion. We all paid the extra £1.00 for our coffee too. Its literally a stones throw from New […]
I was going to order a Full English, from this old school Greasy Spoon – but it was filthy – so I went with a bacon sandwich. I ate it very quickly then went outside. When I got home, (I was on my bike), I still smelled of grease and […]
Another classic greasy spoon. The place was busy – lots of builders and construction types in their high vis jackets. Cheap ingredients, cooked perfectly well. A decent breakfast of 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 hash browns, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, egg and a couple of rounds of toast.
Classic Greasy spoon. Great breakfast, lovely staff. Cheap ingredients – but you know what you are getting. Its the sort of place that they ask you how much sugar you want in your coffee and put it in for you. Don’t let that put you off, its wonderful! BBC Recommended!
