Due to a combination of seasonal pressures, and a memory lapse concerning photos (which I shall attribute to the lack of sleep induced by the arrival of Little Baked Bean), I’m afraid I can only offer a rather perfunctory review of our visit to Moorgate Buttery.

What it offers via promising facade and inspired title, it unfortunately rather fails to live up to in the quality of fare, which just about tips the balance in favour of “above average”, but certainly no more.

A lengthy menu offers various combinations of essential breakfast elements, but if you actually want a full English, you pretty much have to piece it together yourself – somewhat bizarrely, none of the set options gives you everything.

This then inevitably pushes the price up – which would be fine if it were truly outstanding fare, but is somewhat uncomfortable when it’s really quite middle of the road.
