Breakfast is served in the dining room around a large communal table at a time that best suits you. We offer our Malabar house blend loose-leaf tea, freshly ground coffee, traditional Indian lassi as well as seasonal juices, home made bread, porridge and granola with yoghurt and compote. An alternative to a Full English is our Cumbrian Fell breakfast that includes wild boar bacon and venison sausages. Breakfast at The Malabar is a leisurely affair and you are welcome to linger around the table as long as you like and on warm days breakfast can be served outside in the garden.
