Breakfast…the most important meal of the day! At Fairhaven you can enjoy an award-winning array of choices in our bright and airy dining room with views over the moors.
Start with your choice of fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereals and juices. Then tuck into any combination of locally sourced full English options: sausage, dry cure back bacon, mushroom, tomato, baked beans and eggs, cooked however you like.
Or perhaps you fancy one of our daily specials from the blackboard. You can look forward to treats such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on a toasted muffin, baked spiced plums with homemade granola and greek yoghurt, or a Fortune’s of Whitby Kipper with a perfectly poached egg.
Whatever you choose, you can be sure that only the finest quality ingredients have been selected and carefully prepared for you.
