Been going to eddies for breakfasts for years. Which has always been pretty good though quite pricey.
The campsite charge £3 for parking, which if you spend £5 in eddies, the parking would be refunded, which is fair enough.
Today I handed in my parking voucher and was told they don't refund anymore, but you could have a free coffee. So for one adult breakfast, one child's breakfast with extra hash brown, and 2 smoothies, the bill was £19.35 and the additional £3 for parking! We did not want coffee and there was no option to have another drink instead. I think it is disgusting to have to pay £3 to park at a restaurant when your paying £19 for one adult and one child to have breakfast.
I asked to have a hash town instead of toast, this wasn't possible, yet two weeks before, it was no trouble, we were charged extra for this. When the breakfast came, the toast was actually just warmed bread with a cheap vegetable spread on it, the black pudding was actually a few scrapings which looked more like off cuts than an actual piece, and there were no tomatoes. In addition to this, the ketchup tasted like gherkins (not sure what happened there but it didn't taste anything like ketchup) and the brown sauce was also horrible.
The smoothies were actually fantastic as always. No complaints about staff, they are great. Just the food and the fact that we were charged to park. I have no objections to being charged to park when using the beach, but it should be refunded when eating at eddies.
Some may be happy enough with a 'free' coffee, personally on a hot day, I don't want coffee, and this means I have to pay to park to have a meal.
Can't say I will be going for regular breakfasts there in the future!
