London’s best full English breakfasts

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but the avocado is overcado; nothing beats a good old-fashioned fry-up

By Time Out London Food & Drink

Beyond fish and chips, roasts, or pie and mash, the full English is our true national dish. But London takes breakfast to another level. From bacon chops and insanely rich black pudding to a steaming bowl of noodle soup with a fried egg floating on top, this is your bucket list of fry-ups in the city. And not an avocado in sight.

The English £18.75

Breakfast at The Wolseley in St James’s is so iconic the late great AA Gill wrote a whole book about it. Combining London heritage with Viennese grandeur, the Full English here is the foodie equivalent of a Savile Row suit: classic, impeccably made, and very expensive.
