Frank’s Canteen All-Day/Brunch Menu

The bacon or sausage bap, featuring smoked garlic and tomato chutney, adds a delicious twist to a classic brunch staple. Meanwhile, the creamed spinach, mushroom, and onion bap offers a tasty medley of flavours, topped with gruyere, roquito pepper, and a fried egg. We shared the Vegetarian bap, which was excellent and a great choice.

The variety of extras includes house-baked beans, treacle cured back bacon, Cumberland sausages, smoked black pudding, and Lambton and Jackson smoked salmon, ensuring brunch aficionados are thoroughly satisfied.

For diners with a penchant for bold, international flavours, the Sloppy Joe flatbread and hot dog Frankfurter add a touch of excitement to the menu. The Raclette sauce, charred hispi, Jersey royals, cauliflower, and sauce vierge, accompanied by crunchy croutons, make for a memorable dish. And the smoked haddock fillet kedgeree, featuring pilaf, poached egg, and mustard creme fraiche, is a comforting option for fish fans.

We also shared the croissant French toast, dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with mascarpone and maple syrup. It’s an indulgent treat that will have us coming back for more. I’m still thinking about it now! Menu prices were reasonable considering the high standard of food; expect to pay between £8.50 and 16.50 per dish.
