The wife has now decided on the Hilton in Gateshead for our weekend away (forgot to mention that this will be 19-21 Sept 08). I am refusing to pay the £15 each for the hotel's breakfast and was wandering if anyone has any recommendations for a good full english breakfast stop. Ideally we would like to leave the hotel, walk a short(ish) distance, have breakfast and then go off to do what we want without having to return to the hotel again. I'm a firm believer in starting the day with a good, generous hearty fry up in the morning and then spend the day walking it all off so no ponsy "pretty" breakfast stops please, happy with a greasy spoon.....
