Loch Fyne Kenilworth offers perfect start to the day

LOCH Fyne is the keeper of a well-kept breakfast secret.

The seafood specialist in the heart of Kenilworth’s Old Town has always served a breakfast menu, but many people remain under the misapprehension it is purely served to guests of

their adjoining boutique hotel. It is not the case and never has been.

Loch Fyne has established an enviable reputation as the seafood restaurant of choice for many, and with very good reason. They bring the same invention and attention to detail with their breakfast menu, while also offering the same value for money.

There is the full cooked English/Scottish breakfast including haggis, and a continental buffet option with pastries and various cereals.

But there is so much more.

Avocado is very much a current favourite, and is served and teamed in various ways with poached eggs, bacon and smoked salmon options, among others.

We looked to the eggs. The Lobster Benedict – on toasted English muffin with perfect poached eggs, and a spot-on homemade hollandaise – was clearly prepared by a chef who understood lobster, as was our dish of two halves The Loch Muffin – smoked haddock and cheddar cheese on one side, and poached egg and crispy bacon on the other. The servings are also generous.

American style pancakes are another option, and we managed to find room to share a moreish banana, cream, blueberries and maple syrup stack.

To main breakfasts can be added a juice, hot drink and toast and preserves for an extra £4 – which makes for a simple decision.

‘Little soldiers’ are also well catered for with a dedicated children’s menu – again very good value judging by what we saw served to the smaller clientèle – which all come with a complimentary, and delightful sounding, babyccino (frothy milk with chocolate sprinkles).

Youngsters can also create their own breakfast from various choices, and even adults who may fancy say, scrambled eggs with haggis or some other pairing, need only ask.

Those who know the High Street restaurant will already be familiar with the relaxed atmosphere, and for breakfast diners can opt to eat in the actual restaurant, the bar area, and even outside in the summer when the British weather allows.

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then you would be hard pressed to start the day better than at Loch Fyne.
