Highway Garden & Leisure - Framingham Pigot

Loddon Road
Framingham Pigot
NW14 7PW

Big Breakfast served daily till 11.30am.

Highway garden & leisure is about a 10 minute drive from Norwich on the A146.

There is a restaurant and coffee shop, both have a vast seating area.

Yep, looks like a great deal!

Salt and pepper are on the tables along with a menu.

Cutlery and sauces are found close to the counter.

Welcome to sauce city!

The filter coffee was great and included in the price of the big breakfast.

First impressions were good.

Real butter for the toast and a great fried egg.

Quality sausages and chunky cut mushrooms.

A weekend without drinking was on the cards and this meant with no hangover I could get up early on Sunday and search for records at the local car boot sale. Having found a few records that I could sell on ebay I headed to Highway Garden & Leisure knowing fry up inspection time had arrived again...

Upon entering - The restaurant is down the ramp to the right as you enter the main entrance, there is a coffee shop too but ignore that and head to the restaurant counter. The restaurant covers a large area and is well spaced out, clean, light and airy. The big breakfast is advertised on posters on the way in and on the menus found on each table. Place your order at the till and pay, your hot drink is given to you and you are informed the breakfast will be brought to your table when it is ready. Be sure to grab some cutlery and sauces before sitting down, salt and pepper is already on the tables. 8/10

Service - The person taking the order at the till seemed friendly enough and the person who bought the breakfast over did too, I was told the plate was hot which was good to hear! 7/10

Contents - 2 sausages, 1 bacon, 1 fried egg, 1 hash brown, half a grilled tomato, mushrooms, beans, toast & butter and a cup of filter coffee. 7/10

Presentation - Everything sat proudly on the plate surrounding the central highlight of the breakfast, those delicious pork sausages. 8/10

The food - That pair of sausages were well nice, good quality, juicy and full of flavour, the bacon was great too. The hash brown was perfectly crispy, quite large and contained onion which is always a bonus. The fried egg was spot on and went nicely with the hot buttered toast. Chunky cut mushrooms and a tasty half tomato were joined by a rich and juicy serving of beans. A real pleasure to eat! 8/10

Value for money - I was well impressed that the big breakfast only cost £4.95, it came with a hot drink, was a real joy to eat and there was plenty of it, absolute bargain! 9/10

Veggie option - Yes, but forgot to check the details, sorry!

Overall - A fiver well spent and an impressive breakfast that I really enjoyed eating. I was relieved to discover the food was bought over when it was ready so it arrives piping hot . Definitely worth a look if you are passing or why not make a special trip out there, you won't be disappointed! 8/10
