Red Lion Full English Breakfast – Hopwas

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).

I was surprised how busy the pub was, (which after breakfast, I found understandable), however, we ordered our breakfasts our teas and promptly got our breakfasts delivered. The egg was a little greasy, however, apart from that, it was very good. My wifes fried egg was hard and a bit greasy, which was a shame and likewise, it was very good.

2 thick slices of bacon, 2 sausages, (they looked deep fried, but had great texture and taste), black pudding, (cooked perfectly), beans, (which I asked for separately), tomato, crispy hash brown, beautifully cooked mushrooms and a slice of toast.

The veggie version was 2 veggie sausages, tomato, mushrooms, 2 fried eggs, (sadly both greasy and hard) and a crispy hash brown. this was rated 7-8/10 – which is very good.

To imporve this breakfast, sort out the eggs and change the toast from standard sliced bread to some decent quality bread, (ideally thick and crusty).
