The Cottage - Norwich

(No longer serving Breakfast)

9 Silver Road

Breakfast served Saturdays only
10.30am till 2.30pm

The Cottage serve a great roast dinner (read my thoughts on my other blog "Roast Inspector"  here)

We sat on the same table again by the back door.

The area by the back door is quite cosy and warm.

It was far to cold to be sitting outside but looks great for the summer.

A quick Game of Life whilst the sausages are cooking?

A large breakfast with toast and a hot drink for £6.95 seemed like a great deal.

You can chose from tea or coffee.

Sugar lumps in a bowl, nice!

Plenty of piping hot toast served with real butter.

Very colourful and nicely presented.

Excellent fried eggs and mushrooms.

Quality bacon and sausages and sweet tasting tomatoes.

Having eaten a delicious roast dinner at The Cottage a week ago we decided to pop in for a fry up...

Upon entering - Inside it is a very traditional pub with a bar in the centre and plenty of tables to choose from. At the rear is a decent sized beer garden that looked good to sit in during the warmer months. Lots of pictures, trinkets and photos can be found on the walls along with a good selection of board games stacked on a shelf. It was nice and warm with a welcoming feel, a really nice place to sit and spend some time in. Order your breakfast at the bar, tell them what drink you would like, pay and chose where to sit. Once you are seated cutlery, ketchup and eventually the food will be bought over to your table. 8/10

Service - The chap serving us was friendly and ensured everything arrived in good time. We requested ketchup and he bought it over for us. 7/10

Contents - 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 1 slice of black pudding, 2 fried eggs, potato chunks, mushrooms, grilled tomato, beans, 2 slices of toast & butter and tea or coffee. 8/10

Presentation - Everything that arrived at the table was nicely presented from the drinks and the toast stack to the breakfast itself. 8/10

The food - The quality of the sausages was excellent, really meaty with a slightly herby taste. The bacon was delicious and cooked very nicely as was the black pudding. Two great fried eggs with nice runny yolks went perfectly on top of the chunky hot buttered toast. The potato chunks were just how you want them to be, soft in the centre with a nice crispy edge. The grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and beans were all really tasty and along with everything else on the plate served piping hot. 8/10

Value for money - The breakfast was huge and I left feeling incredibly full up. The ingredients used were good quality and the fact it included toast and a hot drink made the £6.95 price seem very reasonable. 8/10

Veggie option - No

Overall - A really enjoyable breakfast and possibly my favourite pub breakfast so far. The selection of items on the plate is excellent, the food is delicious and the pub is a nice place to spend time in, definitely worth a look! 8/10
