Breakfast for Champions

Our breakfast buffet is better than your daily two Weetbix and milk. If you are after a continental breakfast we have a large variety of cereal, fruits, toast and spreads on offer. But no all-you-can-eat breakfast would be complete without a big brekky- Think scrambled eggs, hash browns, sausages, mushrooms, and more. If you’re feeling more sweet than savoury, our pancakes or freshly baked pastries are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Feel energized for the day ahead and enjoy coffee made your way or how about a refreshing glass of orange juice for your daily boost of Vitamin C.
