IS THIS THE BEST BREAKFAST IN BRITAIN?
Pampered by Champney's sugar salt scrubs, luxurious White Company bedding and dressing gowns, we had a look through the DVD library and armed with a vast selection of every tea, coffee and sugar we have ever wanted, settled down for the most peaceful and relaxing night a couple on Londoners have had in a long time.
In the morning, we made our way over to the Hardwick's new dining room and feasted on what Spoon HQ has now proclaimed to be the "Best Breakfast in Britain." Here's what we had (we challenge you to find a better breakfast this side of the Atlantic/Pacific)
Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
Local Organic Apple Juice
Teas, Cafetiere Coffee, Espresso, Cappuccino
Greek Yoghurt with Granola and Local Honey
A Rack of Toast with Butter, Jams, Marmite or Lemon Curd
Cooked Welsh Breakfast: Bacon, Sausage, Fried Egg, Mushroom, Tomato, Baked Beans, Black Pudding and Bread Fried in Pork Fat
Black Mountain Smoked Salmon with Free-Range Scrambled Eggs
Poached, Fried or Scrambled Eggs on Toast
Toasted Bacon or Sausage Sandwich
Smoked haddock with Poached Eggs and Mustard Sauce
I could gush all day about Stephen's food and I haven't started on the bedrooms (and most importantly, the bathrooms) More to come.......
