Everything was fantastic.
Just personal preference on the chorizo it wasn’t our favourite, however that has nothing to do with the chefs and their skills just whatever brand they use wasn’t our favourite.
Rest of the food was amazing! 10/10

We attended Higher Society for Mothers day breakfast. Not the first time we have been there and it won't be the last. Food and service is brilliant and would highly recommend anyone to visit.

Staff are great, friendly and professional. Food is well presented and delicious. Coffee was very good. Tables need to be separated further apart. As one side of the table is looking bench seating, diners are forced to sit close to diners sitting at adjacent tables. Whilst we were sitting eating, another diner had to squeeze between two tables to reach the bench seat. This resulted in his bottom being in our faces as we ate. Really off putting!
