Witha revamped breakfast menu The Big Chill House now serve the most important meal of the day from 8am to 11:30am on weekdays and 11am through to 4pm on weekends. The revamp is all in the spirit of the Big Chill Festival and they have reworked the interior as well as their home cooked food. LondOnTheInside took the opportunity to gorge on a Sunday morning.
The Full English Breakfast is located at the top of the menu, ideally placed and easy for the eye to be drawn to, on a Sunday there should be no other option considered. However through the week you could try the homemade rosti which is like a Swiss omelette with onions and mushrooms or you can build your own bap, choose from sweet waffles, cereal, toast, pastries and much more. A good selection of dishes and something for all levels of hunger and funds.
The Full English comes with a complimentary coffee and free refills. With a choice of fried, poached or scrambled eggs on English Muffins, bacon, Lincolnshire sausage, tomato, mushroom and beans. The breakfast looks appealing, dirty enough to beat of a hangover but clean enough to eat clear headed. The mushrooms in particular are something to write home about, pan-roasted wild and button mushrooms they add an upmarket element to the fry up and taste delish! The English muffins were a great substitute for toast and at £7.50 it isn’t too bad given its proximity to Kings Cross Station and the quality of the brekkie.
The Big Chill House is informal and relaxed – Would we go back? Well we do love a breakfast so why ever not?
