Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Daily

A great destination to dig into a proper English Breakfast.  I went for eighteen pounds sterling worth, the Ten Deadly Sins.  Started with fresh squeezed orange juice, black coffee and a chocolate croissant.  A pitcher of orange juiced stayed with me the entire meal.  And had I wanted cream added to the coffee, the server poured, a nice touch.

On to the 10 Deadly Sins.  All on one plate.  Cumberland sausage, fried egg, streaky and back bacon, black pudding, lamb's kidneys, fried bread, grilled tomato, bubble and squeak, grilled mushrooms and baked beans.

I don't get British baked beans.  Most places just use Heinz from a can.  Give me a ladel full of Boston baked beans any time.  But they work fine with the breakfast and everything else was outstanding.

Simpson's is famous for their breakfasts and their prime rib at dinner.  Britishers told me to go just for breakfast, and I did.
