Start your day in the best possible way, with a hearty breakfast. Please let us know the evening before what you would like for breakfast from the list of options laid out below, so that we can be sure to prepare it in time. If you need to avoid certain foods or follow a special diet please do let us know before your arrival, so we can provide adequate substitutes. We usually serve breakfast to suit our guests schedule, with last service at 9.30am.
FRESH FRUIT AND YOGHURT
We have a selection of melon, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, doughnut peaches and nectarines. The fruit varies according to when it is in season. Extra sweetness is provided from honey and maple syrup.
FRESHLY SQUEEZED ORANGE JUICE
CEREALS AND GRAINS
We provide a wide choice of cereals – muesli, Special K and granola and variety packs for our younger guests. We serve porridge as an option only in the Autumn and Winter months.
GROUND COFFEE AND SPECIALIST TEAS
We serve Breakfast and Earl Grey tea, as well as decaffeinated and herbal/fruit tea and good quality ground coffee served in cafetieres and tea pots. We don’t serve machine made coffee.
FULL ENGLISH BREAKFAST
We serve free range eggs (poached, fried or scrambled), locally smoked or unsmoked dry cure back bacon; traditional pork sausages (flavoured with herbs and spices); mushrooms, black pudding and grilled tomatoes – all served with fresh herbs from Tinsmith’s garden when in season.
SMOKED SALMON AND SCRAMBLED EGGS
We serve locally smoked salmon to order with scrambled eggs on fresh toast.
We provide either a mediterranean style mezze containing fried or grilled Halloumi cheese accompanied by herb crusted tomatoes, mushrooms and fried potatoes. Alternatively we can prepare a fresh egg tortilla containing oven roasted fresh tomato, goats cheese (a creamy young cheese), potato and onions, flavoured with smoked paprika and fresh herbs.
We serve freshly buttered toast on a choice of breads from Aylsham’s award-winning artisan baker Bread Source. Muesli bread and croissants are both a firm favourite with guests, as well as white, granary and sourdough loaves. If you require Gluten or wheat free toast, please let us know in advance as we will need to source these. Fresh butter and a choice of delicious marmalade, jam and preserve are available to complete the first meal of the day!
