If the cooked breakfasts are too much for you, lighter options are available. We offer pancakes & maple syrup and croissants. Alternatively, if you would prefer something savory you make like to try cheese and a selection of cold meats served with homemade rhubarb or plum chutney made from the fruit grown in the organic garden.

Toast is plentiful as is a daily selection of fresh fruit juice and cafetiere of Fairtrade coffee and pot of Fairtrade tea.

If you do not see anything on the menu which you would choose then please request what you would like and I will do my best to source it for you.  At the Old Vicarage, Arbroath B&B nothing is too much trouble and all diets are catered for.
