Breakfast has long since been recognised by nutritionists and health professionals alike as the most important meal of the day, so at Thistle Hotels – we take breakfast seriously!

Guests staying at our range of hotels across the UK can set themselves up for the day with our wide selection of breakfast treats – from the full English to fresh fruit salads and pastries – and they certainly get through a lot of them! We recently looked into just how much bacon, eggs, tea, coffee and other breakfast goods we serve every day in our UK hotels, and the results were somewhat astounding:

On a typical day, guests staying at Thistle Hotels consume 5,153 rashes of bacon – which is enough to reach from dry land to the end of Brighton Pier!

We’ve put our findings into a fun new breakfast infographic featuring some of Britain’s most famous cities – London, Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh – all where you can find a fabulous breakfast at your local Thistle hotel.

Some of the exciting statistics from the infographic include:

  • Britain gets through 165 million cups of tea in a day
  • Thistle hotels serve 3,334 bowls of fruit salad – enough to fill an entire pod on the London Eye
  • 2,728 sausages are served every day – enough to reach across the Thames and Tower Bridge
