A Breakfast Worth Getting Up For !

Start your day in our light and airy dining room, where we pride ourselves on providing good wholesome food. We believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day and with this in mind we aim to satisfy the heartiest of appetites, just the thing to keep you going through the day ahead.

We like to support local businesses who also insist on quality.  So, we use our two local butchers to supply our thick meaty rashers of dry cured back bacon, lightly spiced handmade Cumberland sausage and their “homemade” black pudding (the new super food!).  Our freshly laid free range eggs are supplied by Scales Farm situated just up the road at Embleton, where you can see the hens running free in the fields.  Plump, juicy, grilled tomatoes and fresh mushrooms lightly sautéed in butter complement your Full Cumbrian breakfast and not forgetting our freshly grilled hash brown accompanied by a dash of baked beans all served on pre warmed oversized plates.

We like to make our full breakfast as healthy as possible so grilling rather than frying is the order of the day at Leonard’s Field House.

Opt for the Full Cumbrian, “Lite” Cumbrian, or any of our tasty combinations on offer. Our menu is not set in stone, and we like to be as individual as you. Cherry pick the items you like and leave out the ones you don’t so you get the delicious breakfast you want, however you want it and watch out for our daily changing ‘Specials’ on the board.

Help yourself to our buffet selection of fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit, grapefruit and yoghurt. We offer semi-skimmed or Soya milk to go with your cereal.  In addition there is always a good selection of fresh fruit, seeds, and rice cakes.

To top your wholemeal, farmhouse white or Gluten Free toast, we offer a selection of locally made jams and marmalade by award winning Claire’s of Wigton, plus honey, peanut butter and chocolate spread. Look out for our home made jams, when in season. All washed down with lashings of tea and freshly made filter coffee. Decaffeinated versions available, together with fruit and herbal teas.  Have a favourite? Let us know when booking and we will have it available both at breakfast and in your room when you arrive.

Crucially, we appreciate that everyone is different and to complement our Award winning breakfast menu, a full range of vegetarian and Gluten Free* breakfast options are available, all stored, cooked  and prepared separately using separate equipment and utensils.

*See our  gluten free and coeliac page for more information.
