‘Cornflakes in lager please’ – B&B owners reveal Britain’s strangest breakfast orders

Cornflakes in Carling and dry Weetabix have been named among some of the strangest breakfast orders according to British B&B owners.

A poll of 6,600 owners conducted by online booking platform Eviivo found that 63% of guests preferred the traditional Full English while 17% liked a continental breakfast.

A further 10% opted for muesli while others came up with their own unique breakfast orders:


King prawn vindaloo and a boiled egg

Chicken and salad with vegetables

A plate of fried onions

A bag of uncooked pasta and a jar of Lloyd Grossman tomato and garlic sauce (which the guest then cooked inside the kettle in his room)

Corn Flakes in Carling Lager

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for the dog

Five rashers of bacon in porridge

Steak and Spaghetti

Ribeye Steak and Chips

A Curry omelette

Eggs and Lea and Perrins Sauce

Dry Weetabix

Smoked Salmon and HP Sauce

Scrambled egg on toast ‘with no egg’

Miso soup

Yoghurt with pepper

Weetabix spread with Marmite

Muesli with no milk

Thomas Messett, a director at Eviivo, said: “Chicken, steak, garlic pasta and curry are unusual choices for breakfast, but I guess that one of the pleasures of a holiday is that we’re able to enjoy ourselves whatever time of day it is.

“One of the biggest puzzles is a dry Weetabix spread with marmite. We tried this out in the office. It doesn’t taste great and worse still, it takes about 19 minutes to eat.”

He added: “What our B&Bs find is that catering for every reasonable taste is a great way of increasing bookings. Our data show that 2017 is shaping up to be a very strong year for British B&Bs with a weaker pound influencing British and International holidaymakers to choose a stay here. Even if some of their breakfast tastes are a bit unorthodox, more and more holidaymakers are choosing the ‘Full British’ B&B experience.”
