Brunch at Alexander's Skipton

Calling all comfort food seekers! Start your day off right with Breakfasty Brunch and let’s be friends with The Benedicts– poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on a seeded ciabatta in three different styles; ‘traditional’ with ham, ‘florentine’ with spinach & nutmeg, or the ‘royale’ with smoked salmon.

Take your time with our House Breakfast with eggs cooked your way, dry cured bacon, locally made sausage, Portobello mushroom, doreen’s black pudding, homemade baked beans, roast tomato & sourdough toast, or if your New Year health kick is still going strong- well done! We can help you keep on track with Homemade Granola & Organic Yoghurt with fresh berries or banana and a range of delicious smoothies.

For the perfect ‘Galentine’s’ Brunch, add a Bloody Alexander with tequila, lemon, tomato juice, a dash of tabasco, Worcestershire sauce & chilli flakes, a Peach & Elderflower Bellini or a Mimosa or two.
