Allan, it seems preferable to have a brown bag breakfast to take with
you in the morning. I know we will have to leave the B&B some mornings
BigMike, I'm in full agreement with you. I'm not a hot breakfast guy anyway so a sit-down breakfast at a scheduled time tends to slow down my day. I do appreciate a hotel with a free breakfast, but I'd prefer it on my own schedule. That's probably why I don't use B and B's that often. That's not a complaint about B and B's, just a statement of my travel style.
I remember our first experience with a B and B in Bath in 2018. Breakfast didn't start until 7:30, but we were unaware of the process and came and sat down at 7:00 thinking we'd just quietly wait and read our tablets at the table-it was a very big space, capable of sitting 15-20 people. The hostess was horrified and shooed us out and told us to wait somewhere else. It was very English sit-com like, with the clueless North Americans and the formal British.
