Our Menu - The Embankment

BREAKFAST AT THE THE EMBANKMENT

Served Daily 8:30am - 11:30am
The old proverb demands that we should eat breakfast like Kings (and Queens). We serve up the favourites and always prioritise quality produce – our eggs and bacon are free-range and our sausages are from Jimmy Butler’s farm. Starting the day has never tasted so good.

SUNDAY BEST AT THE EMBANKMENT

We are serious about Sunday roasts, which is why you’ll find at least three choices on our menu every week.

Long may it reign.
