What a fantastic effort. Brackley’s recently refurbished town hall, adorned with 10,425 poppies crocheted by local residents in preparation for Remembrance Day, 2018.Read on ...
It has been a while since we visited The Green Room in Brackley, though we used enjoy a frequent weekend breakfast there. By chance we have now had two breakfasts there in a week. I have to say there have been some improvement in recent months.
When we arrived the place was busy, with the downstairs seating area full. It was a pleasant day, so we chose the one remaining table in the garden, rather than sit upstairs. As the photo shows, the table was rather small for a full breakfast for two! That was our choice, so no complaints – we could have had more table space upstairs.
Green Room Breakfast
The breakfast menu has always had a wide range of options, from simple toast and marmalade to the traditional Full English fry up. Vegetarian and high protein options are there and the staff are always willing to adjust the plate to suit your own tastes. My family doesn’t know how to use a menu – something is always changed!
Our breakfast started with a great cappuccino and dairy free hot chocolate, made with soya milk, which my wife assured me was good.
My full English was well cooked and tasty. For those who don’t know it a “Full English” is a fry up consisting of bacon, sausage, eggs (poached or fried), and often includes beans, hash browns and black pudding. A big test for me is how “clean” the plate is. Sometimes the full English is served with a lot grease on the plate. This is a no-no for me. I am happy to report that my plate was clean free of stray grease and well presented. As the photo shows I opted out of the beans! My wife’s “vegetarian with a bacon cheat” was similarly a well presented meal.
During the day, once breakfast is over (11:15 on weekdays, 11:45 on Saturdays) The Green Room offers a selection of interesting meals. Not your normal “pub food”, and always something imaginative. I have always found something good to eat there.
This is also a good spot to stop for a coffee. And there is always an interesting looking range of cakes on the counter.
Tapas is on offer during the evening, though I have not yet tried that. The Green Room also has an extensive range of gin, carefully paired with the right tonic. Enjoy that at the bar, or with your dinner.
Would I go back to The Green Room
Without question I would go back for breakfast or lunch. We do aim to try their Tapas at some point soon.

A beautiful big blue sky late in the evening in Brackley. English weather can be terrible, but on a good summer day like this one, it’s hard to beat.
You saw a couple of the classic cars in the Brackley Market Place in a previous post. Here are my other photos from this event. It does get a bit worrying when you are taking pictures of “classic” cars, some of which were new and exciting when you were younger. Nevertheless it was a good morning out. Not much to say about them really, just enjoy the photos.
For the uninitiated, Brackley is the home of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 team. Silverstone is a few miles away. So a car show locally is quite appropriate.
