    Anything is possible in a town where you can get a burger but no chips.

    A breakfast without beans would mean I did not have to construct a sausage dam between my beans and my egg.

    Must admit that if there's one item from a full English I could do without, it would be beans. Unless they're really really stodgy.

    I'm not a great fan of beans with a full English (or "Traditional English Death-Plate" as I once heard it called). To be fair, I'd probably just manage with bacon, sausage, plum tomato and fried bread .... and pickled onions and cabbage.

    Re The Bod, despite living only about 10 minutes walk away, I've only been in to eat or drink about 3 times. I've never been that impressed with the food, and though the beer's good, I'm not much of a daytime drinker. It's good for Christmas pressies, though - I usually get half a dozen bottles each for my son and brother.

    You can keep the tomato and hash browns, I'd want another slice of toast and a second egg, a lot more black pud and mushrooms. And that bacon's a bit underdone for me. x

    Beans are the best part of a cooked breakfast for me! Hate it in hotels when they haven't got them on.

    And me, I like it well done and crispy fat .

    Love fried bread and Hash Browns.

    Mushrooms ok if they aren't all watery on the plate.

    Don't like Black pudding at all .

    Not a fan of tomatoes, but can eat them if they have ketchup on.

    Like fried eggs when cooked properly, and not undercooked .

    Hate it in hotels when potatoes and chips are heated up and put on the cooked breakfast. Always assume they are left overs from the previous evenings meals.

    It's got to be a pretty crap establishment that serves chips with a Full English. Even Spoons don't do that!

    A 4* hotel we regularly use puts them out on the buffet . Not there everytime , sometimes shrivelled up chips or shrivelled sliced up roast potatoes, that what makes me think its last nights leftovers.....
    I just pick and choose what looks fresh & tasty of the other breakfast items. We get the breakfasts slung in for free now (as well as the best room in the hotel and free reserved parking spot. The management are falling over themselves to keep our custom , worth taking a past complaint to the top bods ;) )

    This means that an undetermined amount of people believe that a full-english-breakfast needs at the very least two, if not three, varieties of cooked egg?

    Now that we are approaching a sort of lawless wasteland of morality, is it not too much to ask that we are able to punish such people by poaching them whilst still alive?
