Rise and Shine!
What did you have for breakfast this morning? The full-works fry up, or a banana on the go?
This week is Farmhouse Breakfast Week - the perfect excuse to make it a week of hearty, healthy breakfasts! As the old saying goes, you should always "breakfast like a king!"
The event is run by the Home Grown Cereals Authority but also supported by the Farmers Union of Wales, and it aims to highlight the importance of a good breakfast to set you up for that day.

Of course, the healthier the better, and don't forget to add lots of local Welsh produce on your breakfast plate too.
There are loads of reasons why eating breakfast is a good idea; here are just a few:
- people who eat breakfast are usually slimmer than those who don't.
- people who eat breakfast have been shown to be less prone to depression and stress than those who skip it.
- eating breakfast helps keep you mentally alert and focused all morning.
- and a balance, healthy breakfast can help to provide more essential nutrients and vitamins.
You needn't tell us twice! We're off for breakfast now - the Oakeley Arms Welsh breakfast is one of the best, yum!
We're open to non-residents too. Breakfast is served every day between 7am and 11am.
