Distiller, politician, cricket player, benefactor and our founder. Since 1873, we’ve remained true to William’s ideals of what a great pub should be, especially at The Old Contemptibles: warm and welcoming, where people can live life to the fullest in beautiful buildings, brimming with character.
Within our historic walls at The Old Contemptibles, you’ll find a superb range of breakfast options from Full English breakfasts to vegetarian options, pancakes and more. Start your day right at The Old Contemptibles.
We’re rather proud of our delicious cooked breakfast. It’s full of everything you know and love from a proper breakfast — pork sausage, smoked back bacon, golden hash brown, roasted mushroom, free-range eggs cooked to your liking, plum tomato, black pudding, baked beans and a freshly toasted muffin.
If you’re after something a little lighter, well you can’t go wrong with our Eggs Benedict, Eggs Royale or our Avocado Boost Muffin. They’re all perfect for when you’re looking for that morning ‘pick-me-up’.
