Last week I gathered some of my favourite ladies together to try out the new breakfast menu at No 131, Cheltenham. I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend a morning eating great food in such beautiful surroundings – with my best gals?
Cathy and I caught the train to Cheltenham from Bristol and was met at the station by Emma, who whisked us off to the hotel. Once there, we settled into our usual silliness of instagramming everything, chatting excitedly and putting the world to rights. Laura joined us just as we were looking through the delicious new menu.
No 131 has just launched a brand new breakfast menu called ‘hearty and healthy‘ – a great mix of classic breakfasts like the full english and poached eggs on toast – but also with a lighter, healthier option too. Smashed avocado, steamed bulgar wheat & Poached Hen’s Egg or Bircher Muesli with Bananas & Goji Berries. Plus there is a ‘buffet’ style spread with a continental twist, pastries, honey mustard ham on the bone and pickles.
Suitably stuffed we wandered the beautiful hotel taking many photos and styling up shots for Instagram. When the rooms are as beautiful as these it is not difficult to take pretty pictures. Those tiles! I want those in my kitchen please!
Thank you to No131 for inviting us to sample their delicious breakfast menu and allowing us to instagram the hell out of the place!
