We are pleased to present our breakfast menu, which has earned us a considerable reputation and awards for the quality of the ingredients and the care and attention with which it is cooked and presented.
Breakfast at the Old Vicarage is served between 8.30 and 9.30 and no need to order in advance as you may not know your preference until the morning.
