We take our food seriously at The Great Grubb and strive to provide you with a delicious breakfast made from quality ingredients.

Whilst Covid-19 social-distancing remains an important requirement, we will be adapting how our breakfasts are served. However, we will be keeping to the same comprehensive menu our guests have enjoyed in the past. 

During this period, breakfast will be organised as two separate 45 minute sittings and served every morning in the dining room and the conservatory area overlooking the garden terrace. Guests will also continue to be able to enjoy the popular, summer 'al fresco' option with breakfasts served on the patio area.

Our menu will continue to include fresh fruit salad, cereals, yoghurts, juices, toast and a cooked selection prepared individually for you.

Our standard full English breakfast consists of:

  • 1 Premium English breakfast sausage
    1 Premium pork chipolata sausage
    2 Large rashers of smoked back bacon
    1 Extra-large free range egg (poached, fried or scrambled)
    1 Portion of sauteed potatoes
    1 Portion of mushrooms
    1 Portion of baked tomato(es)
    1 Pot of baked beans

Guests are free to make their own combination from these ingredients.

Vegetarian and Vegan Breakfasts and catering for guests with allergies.

We pride ourselves both in our vegetarian/vegan breakfasts as well as in catering for guests with specific dietary needs. 

For those guests who have requested these options prior to their stay, we are able to offer gluten and milk-free brown and white breads for toasting, a gluten-free cereal, milk-free yogurts, a vegan alternative to butter, as well as soya or almond milk. Vegan and vegetarian guests are able to enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast, with meat free sausages and oven baked tomatoes, mushrooms and potatoes cooked in rape seed oil rather than butter, and baked beans. 

Please ensure you advise of any allergies when booking a stay with us!

Breakfast Reviews

Katalin from Hungary (Reviewed:20 February 2020):'Exceptional'

Sandra and John are super kind and flexible hosts, and the place is also friendly and neat. My vegan and gluten free breakfast was not a problem at all. Highly recommended, I will return for sure!

Anthony from the United Kingdom (Reviewed:16 February 2020):'Great place to stay in Totnes.'

The breakfast was quite possibly the best breakfast I have ever had in a guest house. The owners, John and Sandra, were very welcoming and it felt like nothing would be too much trouble?.

Peter from the United Kingdom (Reviewed:10 June 2019):'A lovely welcoming place '
