Celebrating the unique and wonderful breakfast dishes served up in UK B&Bs and small hotels, part two!

12 February, 2016

We recently asked some of our 5,500+ B&Bs to tell us if they served up anything slightly different on their breakfast menu. And last week we showed you that many of our customers do serve up spectacular and unique takes on the traditional English breakfast.

We had so many unique and delicious dishes, we had to bring you more:
