    One man and his Hog(raost)...

    Here we go:

    Friday



    Genius or madness - you decide:



    Andy Pandy was there.....



    Brum-brrrum!



    Musical Hamsters...



    Saturday





    After several hours of loin-gurding I set-off on my breakfast run ... alone ...however Bakerman had suggested a lovely route to the Popham Little Chef, my favourite part of it being Waltham Lane ( I think) - lovely single-track lane...

    Anyway...arrived at my destination:



    ...was seated straight away and ordered an "Olympic Breakfast".

    This is what I was served:



    It was tasty enough, but the sausages could've done with a bit more colour in them...blackpudding was lovely... but it really didn't seem terribly Olympian to me....not at all as I recalled.......and having seen the picture, I've just realised there were no fecking sauteed potatoes...



    An email to Little Chef is in order, I think.

    Anyway - Back to the 'Raost via Sainsbury's for some beer and off with the bike-kit for some serious relaxation...











    Dorty Boik:



    Loud shirts and Tossers...



    Hot pig:



    Sunday



    Splendid weekend!

    Thank you for your company and to Bake's and all those who worked so hard to make a crack(l)ing weekend.

    That's disgusting, hope it didn't ruin your Hogroast and someone's head should roll for such a fundimental cock up.

    Nice breakfast shot by the way

    Had an email from a nice lady at Little Chef HQ: The 3 restaurants given the Heston Blumenthal treatment, Popham, York and Kettering West do not serve saute potatoes with the Olympic breakfasts ........should've had me reading glasses with me then.

    PS: Heston, you twat!

    So seriously Chris, was this in any way 'special'

    It looks pretty bog standard....edible, but nothing special at all.....how did it taste though? was it worth it, and how much was it ?

    These are critical questions in tosserdom

    Nine and a half quid for that and a Diet Coke.

    To my palate the sausages, black pudding and bacon were tasty and of good quality.... the mushroom (note singular) was revolting, fortunately you can't really do a bad fried egg

    ........but we can get a full breakfast at Salt'n'Pepper on Westgate Hill for £4.95 and you get about 3 times as much on your plate.

    It was disappointing and I'm glad I didn't persuade anyone else to go there with me.

    The reasons I went were the TV series with HB and a fond memory of years ago returning from Greece, off the Dover ferry and into the first Little Chef we came across.
    In my mind the "Olympic" was a huge platefull of English breakfast that we'd missed for 3 weeks whilst abroad.

    In the TV series he made a big thing about using a pipette to get black bits on the egg. Can't see them on there

    I stopped at Tesco near the Hograost on the way ther eon Staurday and had a huge breakfast - two of everything - plus a cup of tea, all for only £3.45.

    That's why I could only manage four* doughnuts a bit later on ...





    *(six.)
    I'm tired of giving a reason when the future is what we believe in.
