St Michael's Mount
The Godolphin Arms. View from St Michael's Mount.
The Godolphin Arms is a hotel restaurant wonderfully located on the sea wall at the end of the causeway to St. Michael’s Mount. You cannot have a better location. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to St Michael’s Mount which is a Cornish counterpart of the Mont Saint Michel in Normandy but much smaller. You only walk in low tide of course From Marazion you can also go to the Isles of Scilly by helicopter or boats. These isles are great for people into birds.
We took the Godolphin breakfast club full English composed of 2 sausages, grilled tomato, a hash brown, fried egg, toast, mushrooms and 2 rashers of bacon, with mug of tea or coffee (£6). They have quite an extensive breakfast menu with smoked haddock fillets served with scrambled eggs (£7.95), traditional kippers served with poached eggs (£7.95), rack of toast with butter, jam or marmite (£1.95), backed beans on toast (£3.75), scrambled egg on toast (£4.25)… They have breakfast baps, like bacon bap (£3.25), bacon & egg bap (£3.95), sausage bap (£3.25) or egg bap (£2.95).
The dining area is quite pleasant, through the windows you have a great view over the St. Michael’s Mount. The breakfast was quite good and large. After eating it, we felt we could brave the cold wind more easily.
The two breakfasts
Sausages, grilled tomato, hash browns, fried egg, toast, mushrooms and bacon!
Cost and conclusion: it was £12 for 2, not bad value considering the location and the quite decent breakfast. Highly recommended if you plan to visit St. Michael’s Mount!
