Eating Out: The Gap Inn, Muston

Have your say

The all-you-can-eat breakfast at The Gap Inn would be the perfect hangover cure.

Unlimited bacon, sausage, fried egg, scrambled egg, hash browns, beans, tomotoes and toast, all washed down with a brew - at extra cost - and you’d be right as rain.

And all that for just £3.99!

The all-you-can eat brekky at The Gap Inn, in Muston, is a great idea and follows on from the very popular carvery the pub/restaurant has offered for a number of years.

The pork sausages were plain but tasty, the bacon not too fatty (if a little salty) and the rest was spot-on. I’d half-expected the beans to be cheap and tasteless and tomatoes watery at that price but I was pleasantly surprised.

Plus, the fried eggs were runny.

Added to that, the toast was fresh as diners place their own bread - white or wholemeal - in the conveyor toaster, which had by the side of it margarine, butter, jam and marmalade.

Both my other half and I thought the breakfast was delicious, although he did remark that mushrooms, black pudding and fried bread would have made it that much better. I replied that at £3.99 he should have no complaints!

A pot of tea for one cost £1.55, very cheap considering it filled his cup twice.

The service was friendly and we didn’t have to queue. In fact, at 10.30am on a Saturday we were one of just five lots of diners.

Muston is a short drive out of town, located off the A52 in the Vale of Belvoir. Its location means it is the ideal place to fuel before a visit to the Vale’s attractions or even a shopping spree in Nottingham.

The Gap Inn - known by many locals still as the Muston Gap - certainly deserves its four stars.
