The Fancy Goat

Before heading off on the train to London, we decided to get a spot of breakfast in West Malling, a little town in Kent which I believe I've spoken about before

Just before I started blogging (over a year ago, can you believe?!), I spent my 20th birthday in The Fancy Goat, a new restaurant in the area which had recently opened. The food was lovely but we hadn't returned since that day. Luckily, on this particular morning we eyed up the breakfast menu and saw that the prices were really reasonable, so popped inside for a bit of pre-travel foodie goodness. 

We took a seat in the empty restaurant (which I feel should be buzzing, considering the breakfast we were just about to have!), the sun shining through the windows. 

With an appropriately well sized coffee, complete with logo'd mug, we waited eagerly for our brekkies to arrive. 

Both my mum and Ollie ordered the full English, which was a fantastic size and tasted amazing. The quality of all the ingredients was top-notch (I can vouch as I obviously had to take a nibble...). 

Guess what I had? Pancakes, of course! 

They were some of the nicest American-style pancakes I've had in a while! Perfectly light and fluffy, with a generous helping of maple syrup (always appreciated) and some deliciously sweet blackberries and strawberries to top it all off. They were pretty much perfect!

The Fancy Goat is definitely a place to go if you're into all that trendy decor. The walls are interestingly textured, while quirky art (which you can buy) hangs on display. 

They also have an upstairs seating area for the evening, and I'm pretty sure you can rent them out for functions as well. 

I'm so glad we stopped by The Fancy Goat for breakfast, especially because of the price! The pancakes were only £3.50 while the Full English came in at £6.50! Anyone who comes from Brighton or London will know that for that quality of breakfast that's a complete steal! 

We hurried off after breakfast down to West Malling train station, where we would soon head to a lovely London market for the day, but more on that next time.
