Early doors

In Breakfast by James Anstee

A gastropub in the Midlands will start serving breakfast in a bid to attract more customers. House of Darwin, in Derby, was granted an extension to their opening hours back in August. When lockdown restrictions are lifted, the pub will open from 9am until closing, seven days a week to cater for breakfast. Dishes will include eggs benedict, granola with yoghurt and honey, and a full English breakfast. A takeaway service will also be available.

The owner, Easton Andrea, says that the decision has been made as the pub looks to boost revenue following a difficult year for the hospitality industry and hopes that the move will help protect jobs. “If people are on their way to work, they can pop into House of Darwin for a coffee and croissant or a bacon sandwich,” he added, “it will be breakfast – but with a sophisticated, House of Darwin twist.”
