Anyone for a Full English? Our ingredients here at our B&B in York for our traditional Full English breakfasts are sourced locally. We believe that it is worth that bit extra to provide our Guests with good quality local ingredients.

We make our own breads along with our jams and marmalade and again this year we have been recognised by Deliciously Yorkshire for sourcing local quality ingredients. Our breakfast trifle eggy crumpets and black pudding delight are just a few alternatives to a Full English that we offer our Guests here at Gregorys. So what are you waiting for!!!!

So a big thanks goes out to all our Guests who took the time to write a review. To check out our availability just visit our website.
Our floor tiles in our hallway our over 100 years old. These Minton tiles were developed by a man called Herbert Minton along with his Business Partner Michael Daintry they sucessfully took over the family business from Thomas Minton (Herberts Father). The Minton factory in Stoke upon Trent began production of encaustic tiles during the 1840’s when Herbert Minton died in 1858 his Nephew Colin Minton Campbell took over production. Thank you Herbert Minton for your wonderful eye catching designs we know there are many Minton patterns around but we absolutely love ours. Our claim to fame is !!!!! A Guest that stayed with us said his Grandfather worked on the production line at Mintons. !!!!!!!! Oh and can you spot my feet on this picture. Lol !
