On New Year's Day my Guy and I returned to Moor Hall for brunch. Many years ago we went to a city hotel for brunch but things went wrong with the booking so it wasn't a great event. Since we know our local Moor Hall so well and go there so often we thought their idea of brunch was bound to be pretty good. We were right.
The brunch was held in Moor Hall's Country Kitchen which serves as a carvery. This is the scene that greeted us on arrival.
A gorgeous Christmas tree

Our table faced the door so I still had a view of the tree. We were greeted with either bucks fizz or fruit punch ... both of us chose the bucks fizz. Then we were served with a pot of tea and toast.
They certainly know how to feed folk at this place. I went straight for the hot buffet and had the full English breakfast: grilled bacon, sausages, sauteed mushrooms, fried eggs (there was an assortment of egg dishes), black pudding, baked beans, hash browns, mini burger, fried tomatoes, minute steak, and crunchy fried bread. Afterwards I had pancakes and hubs partook of a little yoghurt. And toast and jam. Wow, it was like having all my dreams come true! If you want to know what I didn't have, just look at the menu.
The guy at the next table started with fruit from the cold buffet, followed by kippers, and then a traditional English breakfast. When he'd finished he (and his wife) went back for more. He might have selected different items but the quantities were the same. Huge platefuls both times, followed by pancakes. I couldn't believe it 'cause I was full to bursting on one plateful.
I was so busy eating I forgot to take a picture of all the goodies on my plate. Heehee, sorry about that. Anyway this was the tail end, the rest was in my tummy.
