I use this site all the time to read recommendations but always use an excuse (my laziness) to not write a review. However, eating dinner and breakfast in Blakes made me log on. The food is great and good value for money, having only discovered Scotch eggs recently (I lived an incredibly sheltered life) I chose this as a starter and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rest of meal was just as good as was the breakfast of poached eggs and smoked salmon. The biggest plus was nikky, who seems to oversee the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. He took the time to talk to us, educate us on the wine and say hello at breakfast. I wanted to kidnap him and bring him back with us in our suitcase! I hope Blakes and Connaught Hotel recognise the asset they have here. We will come back next year as long as nikky is greeting us!
