What’s for Breakfast and Brunch at The Henry Potts?

Those who enjoy a slice of history with their brunch or breakfast will find The Henry Potts well worth considering. Based at 85 Watergate Street in Chester, the building housing the pub dates to the Georgian era and was constructed as a townhouse for a pillar of society, Cheshire solicitor Henry Potts, Esquire (from whom the pub takes its name).

A basement pub in the heart of Chester, The Henry Potts has earned a reputation for honest food and ales, which is immediately apparent in its offerings for morning meals. Those dropping by for a bite with a beer can indulge in a large or small breakfast or brunch, with dishes available for different diets.

The HP Breakfast kicks off the menu featuring traditional favourites like black pudding, smoked bacon and pork sausage, accompanied by homemade baked beans, sourdough toast and a poached egg.

Equally hearty is the grilled ribeye steak open sandwich in garlic butter with a fried egg and rocket leaves and tater tots on the side. Smoked salmon is also available with avocado and scrambled egg on a toasted slice of sourdough.

For vegetarians seeking a treat, there’s a wild mushroom crumpet loaded with truffle, rocket and goat cheese.

Meat eaters seeking a lighter start to the day will find breakfast baps filled with sausage or streaky bacon, while vegetarians can tuck into barrel-aged feta with beetroot hummus on sourdough and topped with toasted seeds.

When you’re next enjoying a day out in the city, you can try starting your excursion with some sustenance at the Henry Potts.
