Pinnies is in a beautiful location very close to the River Ouse on The Causeway in Godmanchester, the parking is outside on the street if you can find a spot, luckily I did this morning.
The premsies were clean and tidy and nice and bright, there was quite alot of chatter going on which is always a good sign.
The service was good just right for me to read the menu on the chalkboard on the wall, decide what to have then ordered.
There was everything I needed on the menu with a good selection of dishes on offer.
On the Plate:
I ordered the Pinnies breakfast, which is the equilivent of their full english. I was amazed that when my breakfast came the lady that cooked it apologised and gave me another fried egg because the first one had broken, I thought that was a lovely touch.
The breakfast was very good and well presented, with the bacon and sausage being the highlights for me, so full of flavour and very tasty. There is a very good butcher in Godmanchester so I would imagine they came from him. As I said 2 fried eggs which is a novelty for me as I usually only have one. The rest of the breakfast was perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Included in the price was a slice of toast, with a choice of whire or brown bread. During the breakfast one of the staff kindly asked me if I would like any more toast or coffee …. nice touch.
The coffee was a good cup with plenty of flavour with a good size, cuo and nice to know that a free extra cup was on offer. The coffee did come along well before the breakfast, but that didn’t really matter on this occasion.
For the ‘Pinnies’ breakfast icluding the toast and coffee and the option of a refill was £6.95
The biggest surprise I had today was that Pinnies is all part of ‘Mencap’ mental health charity so the staff are all volunteers in there, so I was delighted to contribute to the charity and well done to them all. They all did a stirling job and were all very willing to stop and chat and spend some time with their customers …. keep up the good work.
