Polly's Tea Rooms Full English but not a full price
According to the English Breakfast Society, our internationally famous cooked breakfast was traditionally an opportunity for 'the gentry to display the wealth of their estates and the quality of the meats, vegetables and ingredients produced on surrounding lands' . Few cooked breakfasts these days do justice to the original ideal and one might be especially wary of those which are available for less than £5, but at The Polly Tea Rooms, the full English lives up to the 13th Century tradition.
The success of a Full English lies in the sum of its parts and quality starts with the primary ingredients, without which the end result can never be first rate. At Polly's you’ll find free range eggs from Beechwood Farm with yolks full of colour and whites which have substance and flavour. Proper rashers of substantial back bacon are served with award winning sausages from Andrews - textured, well-seasoned and full of flavour. Add to this sautéed mushrooms, tomato, beans and hash browns with two slabs of hand cut, grilled, toast and you have yourself a feast.
Finding a breakfast for £4.95 is rare enough nowadays but to find one with prime local ingredients served by attentive staff in an attractive setting is frankly ridiculous. Try one quickly because this offer surely can’t last. The breakfast offer is available before 11a.m. but The Polly Tea Rooms stays open until 5.30 daily serving a selection of homemade cakes, light bites, drinks and main courses.
