GRAVY and the full English breakfast are both Great British staples, but not normally together.
However, one pub has taken the bold step of serving their fry-ups with a hefty serving of gravy – and the controversial combination is apparently a hit.
Bristol pub The Old Bookshop is responsible for the unusual mash-up, which sees ketchup and brown sauce thrown out the window in favour of good-old gravy.
Foozie reports that the “Bookshop Breakfast” is a new feature on the boozer’s brunch menu, served up with a jug of the brown stuff.
However, customers haven’t just been drowning their fry-ups in any old gravy – no, that would be disgusting.
Instead, the pub has whipped up a special “breakfast gravy”, designed to accompany your fried egg and baked beans.
And, according to Foozie, the unlikely sauce works with a full English.
Food writer Thom Whitchurch said: ” I’ll admit that pouring gravy over an egg did twist my melon at first, but I got over it pretty quick.”
The breakfast will set you back £9.50, coming with bacon, sausage, egg, bubble & squeak, baked beans, mushrooms and those all-important lashings of breakfast gravy.
In a clip from inside the pub, a hungry customer can be seen drowning their breakfast in gravy, although not everyone is impressed.
