A west Dorset B&B officially has the tastiest breakfast.

Dorset House in Lyme Regis has been crowned the winner of the ‘Tastiest Breakfast’ award at the 2019 Eviivo Awards.

The B&B, run by Lyn and Jason martin, fought off competition from nine other establishments, finishing top of the breakfast menu with their signature vegetarian breakfast dish.

They competed in a cook-off in front of a panel of industry experts, including celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, who presented the award.

Lyn said: “It is a real honour to win this award, we are absolutely delighted. There was some strong competition in this year’s category, so it was really great to be crowned ‘Tastiest Breakfast’ winner at the Eviivo Awards ceremony.

“We take food very seriously at Dorset House, carefully selecting quality produce for the best local suppliers, including slow-reared bacon and sausages from nearby Downhouse Farm, vegetables from Trill Farm and eggs from Haye Farm.

“Breakfast is served around a communal table where guests can relish in a range of favourites. We look forward to showcasing our signature dish to new and returning guests in the future.”

The Eviivo Awards, which were held in the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, seek to recognise the best of the UK’s independent accommodation.
