You will savour a delicious breakfast in our dining room, seated around our Georgian breakfast table. To start, we offer a selection of fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, juices and porridge. Other choices include a full or lighter English breakfast, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, pancakes and a range of other options. Our home-made (indeed, home-grown) jams, marmalades, compotes and apple juice add a special touch.
