A city pub has introduced a new breakfast and brunch menu.

The Plungington Hotel is part of the Meat and Drink group which operates Plau bar amongst other venues in the city.

A full English and a full veggie or vegan breakfast is on offer at the pub on the roundabout where Plungington Road, Black Bull Lane and Lytham Road meet.

Worth noting if you’re planning an early alcoholic beverage with your meal they don’t serve alcohol until 12noon so it was coffee and tea all-round for the Blog Preston crew.

We ordered three full breakfasts and Kate, our vegan, went for the vegan option (obviously).

You get a choice of toast (white, brown or gluten free, which comes with an extra 50p charge).

For the full breakfast the highlight is definitely the hash browns.

No Maccies type hash browns here, these are freshly made and absolutely delicious.

Despite an egg mix up, I landed a fried one instead of a poached, it shows the size of the menu may prove a little confusing at first between the serving staff and the kitchen but as it’s only a few weeks in of the new menu we’re sure they will iron this out.

It’s also good to see the Plungy lets you chop and change from the extensive options, so you can swap a tomato or black pudding out if you’re wanting more of something.

There was also a surprise in store for Kate when her plate arrived with not one but two tofu variations. The grilled version looked just like the halloumi that’s included in the veggie breakfast and was eyed suspiciously by Kate until it was confirmed as tofu. Although she thought the two tofus could’ve benefitted from more seasoning, Kate gave the Plungy an A for Vegan effort.

Kate had the thirst so a round of prosecco was ordered as the clock struck 12, although the pub were keen to point out they don’t serve prosecco – only sparkling wine.

At £7.95 for the full breakfast and the full vegan breakfast it’s good value for the portion size.

If you’re not wanting the full works there is a breakfast bap or wrap, with plenty of options, or a three egg omelette available. They serve breakfast from 11am on Saturdays and Sundays only.

Blog Preston was invited along to try, so they knew we were coming and this was a taste test not a review.
