THE CHEF OF THE VENUE HAS NOW CHANGED SO THIS REVIEW IS NO LONGER CURRENT AS OF FEB 2020.
Saturday Morning we were in the town centre and got a craving for a full English breakfast. I’d previously seen on Facebook an inviting image of a full English breakfast at The Lord Bobs and we kept meaning to try the food there so it was a good opportunity.
It was around 1:30pm, so a little late for breakfast but luckily the breakfasts are served until 2pm.
Upon entering It seemed quite busy and loud but it was a Saturday afternoon. Everyone was friendly enough and there were a few customers tucking into bar snacks like wings and fries. The staff were helpful and attentive, as we wondered in to the pub looking a little lost, it’s been a while since we’ve been in and we hadn’t eaten there before.
The guy behind the bar asked if we were wanting food, told us to take a seat and have a look at the menu and someone would be with us soon, as the chef had just popped out for more supplies due to a busy morning.
We weren’t waiting long at all before our orders were taken and the wait for the actual food wasn’t bad either. Although I did have to nip out to the cash point before it came as they don’t take card payments.
We had opted for a medium breakfast which was around £5 each. To be honest it was a rather generous portion and we were both full so a large would have been too much to handle.
Everything on the plate was hot and freshly cooked. Perfect runny eggs for dipping my toast and crispy hash browns. The bacon was thick and the slice of black pudding was an added bonus for me.
The breakfast also came with 2 slices of toast each and a nice big ramekin of butter, rather than a stingy little packet. The only thing that could improve the breakfast would be the sausages. I’m not sure what they are but reminds me of Richmond or Irish sausages and personally I prefer Lincolnshire or butchers sausages. But obviously costing for the breakfast using these sausages it is cheaper for mass breakfast production, the sausages weren’t bad though and they still tasted alright ……and I ate them. There was a good helping of beans and mushrooms, because some places you get a teaspoon of beans and you need a magnifying glass to see the remains of some shriveled mushroom.
All in all it was a pleasant breakfast at somewhere we wouldn’t usually think to eat and no doubt we will return again to try something else on the menu one day, I do hear their Sunday carvery is pretty popular. The total for 2 medium breakfasts and 2 cokes came to around £14.
Good service and friendly people.
Will you be giving the Lord Roberts food a go?
