Although the menu is brief, it features fresh local produce and brunch classics for those that like to stick to what they know.
My guest and I sat in the conservatory of the restaurant and examined the menu with ravenous eyes. Starting off with a pot of English breakfast tea and a cappuccino, we set our sights on the food.
I went for the waffle with Dingley Dell Bacon, a fried duck egg and a side of black pudding. This was very good – the eggs were sunny side up just how I like them, the bacon was not too fatty, the black pudding were crumbly and also not too fatty and the waffle was fluffy.
We also got some Mersea oysters on the side, which may not be to everyone’s fancy, including our own.
My guest went for a classic breakfast item – eggs Benedict.
