Customers can be assured of an excellent cooked breakfast at The Sir John Baker, in Portsmouth.
The pub came third in a competition to find Britain’s best pub-cooked breakfast.
The competition, judged by mystery inspectors, was organised by the British Pig Executive (BPEX).
Inspectors judged the breakfasts on several criteria: courtesy of the staff; overall impression of the breakfast; overall quality of other breakfast items served; overall value for money; quality of the sausage and bacon.
The Sir John Baker was the only pub to achieve top marks for value for money and the fastest-served pub-cooked breakfast.
The pub’s manager, Natalie Owens, said: “It is great to be recognised for the quality of our cooked breakfast.
“We offer an excellent cooked breakfast, comprising a fried free-range egg, bacon, sausage, baked beans, hash browns, a large flat mushroom and half a grilled tomato.
“It is extremely popular with our customers, so the award is great recognition for our kitchen team members who work hard to ensure that our cooked breakfasts are always first class.”
BPEX’s trade sector manager (foodservice), Tony Goodger, said: “Wetherspoon has demonstrated that it offers the best value-for-money breakfast, served quickly and built around really good foundations of great sausage, good bacon and nicely cooked egg.
“The team members at The Sir John Baker deserve to be congratulated on their achievement as should Wetherspoon – through its commitment to serving breakfasts across all of its pubs.”
