Bacon roll and a hot drink for £4.70
Available from Coach H on Greater Anglia's Norwich to London service
I visit London fairly frequently and always board the train on coach H, the buffet car. Often my first port of call in London is a cafe to inspect a breakfast but with an almost 2 hour journey ahead of me I find it hard to resist the bacon roll and hot drink deal for £4.70 that the buffet car offers. The coffee is always rather nice and the bacon roll (despite being microwaved) I always really enjoy too, time to take a closer look...
Usually within 10 minutes of boarding the train I decide a coffee and bacon roll is needed.
I always approach the counter praying they have some bacon rolls left, thankfully they always seem to. I have tried Bacon rolls from Upper Crust on Norwich station and Subway on Prince of Wales Road but they just don't seem as good as the ones found in coach H.
£4.70 gets you a tea or coffee and the bacon roll served with Heinz ketchup. A coffee on it's own costs £2 so it seems to make sense to pay the extra £2.70 for the bacon roll too.
It is always piping hot in a soft roll and packed full of bacon, usually about 3-4 rashers. I am not really bothered about bacon being crispy so I always really enjoy it and with buffet car prices always being quite high this always seems like a good deal and money well spent.
