The annex accommodation was really comfortable and quiet. The pub is really nice - trendy decor and good food. The breakfast was excellent. Not sure why others say it's overpriced. It isn't. My vegetarian supper was about £10 and the service great.

Yes breakfast will be included and you will have a large selection of items to choose from. Breakfast will most likely be served in All Saint's side room, but it might be a good idea to double check when you check in.
