West Vale's famous breakfasts served in our stylish and traditional dining room. Guests are able to choose from the delights of the buffet table including Dee's famous lemon posset which is always hailed as a must try by our regulars. For the very hungry this is followed by Glynn's huge traditional English breakfast. (See Breakfast Menu).
