Firstly, nothing wrong with breakfast as such.
However F&B’s is a cut above a greasy spoon. Atmosphere is nice, gentle 50’s music, nice furnishings usual expectation.
The breakfast menu’s are now cheaply printed ‘cafe’ style cards, the radio is more ‘pop’ than soothing (don’t think ‘Shaggy’ or ersatz Take That covers were crooning in the 50’s?).
Had breakfast stack. Sausage, bacon, hash brown, fried egg on ciabatta bun with cubed potatoes and (extra cost) side of baked beans with free-refill coffees.
Quick service and well presented. Nice looking fried egg but the joy of breaking the yolk and letting it run over the rest of the contents was spoiled when it turned out to be a congealed disc of yellow that dropped off the white onto my plate like a chocolate coin......
Given we eat fairly early the sausage was obviously a reheated left-over; hard ‘baked’, double-cooked skin.
Not to usual standards and feels like a purpose made decision to marginalise breakfast from core (big profits) restaurant lunch/dinner business.
Just under £11 per person for decent sized breakfast with a couple of coffees isn’t too bad but there are a couple of local ‘greasy spoons’ I’d use ahead of this to get similar for around £6-7, just not got the comfy bench seats of F&B’s
