“Bah! Wetherspoons!” You may spurt, that is too uniform, too standard. To be considered on a blog of ongoing breakfast reviews. I’m here to say, perhaps uniformity isn’t so bad an idea. Wetherspoons have brought up hundreds of restaurants and pub over the years, business is booming. Indeed also having now moved into the hotelier business too, they must be doing something right. Where ever you may be travelling in the UK, its pretty suffice to say, there may be a Wetherspoons there. So how are the breakfasts?
Wetherspoons offer an extensive Breakfast Club menu. From the traditional English to the larger one, with those extra yummy hash browns, another egg and toast. Is a spot on morning feast that will last you all day. Breakfast wraps, a self contained English in a bread wrap for those not wanting the full feast. Lots of vegetarian options, swapping out sausages for the Quorn equivalent. Porridge with blueberries and brown sugar. American style pancakes with syrup. Nom!!!! Smoked salmon, on a bagel with cream cheese and rocket salad. Bowl of mixed berries and fruit. Childrens sizes, vegan and gluten free selections. Wetherspoons have you and your family covered for your most important meal of the day for a reasonable price.
Nottingham has a number of Wetherspoons, though our preference is the Roebuck Inn, off the main market square up an alley like street called St James St. Directly opposite the Malt Cross. Sized spacious built into a Grade 2 listed building from 1770 formerly a warehouse/workhouse with a conservatory outdoor terrace smoking area on the roof. It can get generally busy, but not as much as its Market square company neighbour. The Joesph Isle. Its a lighter atmosphere with natural light coming from the roof above.
Our only gripe, is that pretty frequently, staffing can be very tight. With the bar staff/duty managers also rushing around delivering food before dashing back to the bar to continue taking orders.
