In this short blog, I wanted to highlight some of our favourite breakfast spots within Bridgnorth and the local area. If you have never visited Bridgnorth before, you will soon learn that is a bustling little touristy town with lots of independent shops and restaurants and some of the larger chains too.
We are regularly asked ‘Where can we get breakfast while staying in Bridgnorth?’
Shocked that you don’t want to cook your own over the camping stove… We have picked out 5 popular cafes and restaurants for breakfast in Bridgnorth, all serve different likes, budgets and appetite for walking. We have also provided links so you can find, book and feed-up easily.
REMEMBER: If you do make it to one of the 5 best spots for breakfast in Bridgnorth, please let them know you were recommended by Craig & Paula at Bridgnorth Glamping.
#1 – The Closest – The Swan Inn (300m / 2 min walk)
The closest brekkie spot is The Swan Inn just a short walk up the hill from our main gate. Breakfast at The Swan is by prior booking only… ideally the night before, but they will work hard to accommodate you if you call first thing.
∙ Mon – Fri 7:30 am – 9:30 am
∙ Sat – Sun 8:00 am – 10:00 am
The Swan provides a selection of cereal, juices, toast and cooked breakfast options. The quality of the food is high, but the price can reflect that, personally, I think it is great value for your money. If you want a cheap and cheerful gutbuster, move along, but… If you value great surroundings, good quality ingredients or the ability to walk or avoid heading into town… Book yourself in!
#2 – Our Favorite – Peepo’s
Peepo’s is one of our favourite restaurants in Bridgnorth and they infuse great quality and quantity at a very reasonable price. The ‘Local Legend’ breakfast is enough to fill any starving glamper and the bottomless refill on coffee is an added bonus.
Peepo’s is located on the high street and is a 15-20 min walk or a short drive. There is limited parking out front or you can use any of the larger car parks which are a short 2 min walk away.
Peepo’s are closed during the weekday mornings which is a shame, but this really is our go-to spot brekkie (and more) for our family. You’ll love it too.
∙ Saturday from 09:00-11:30
∙ Sunday from 10:00-11:30
#3 – Best Coffee – Butlers
Third on the list is a relative newcomer to the Bridgnorth coffee scene Butlers. Paula and I use Butlers for regular ‘meetings’ and to escape the grind. We think the cappuccinos are the best in town and they also provide a range of fresh breakfast sandwiches and omelettes all made to order.
TOP TIP: Park in the bottom end of Sainsbury’s car park and look for the rear door to Butlers instead of fighting for a parking spot in town.
∙ Sun – 10:30-14:00
∙ Mon – Sat – 09:00-16:00
#4 – Budget – Whitburn Coffee Shop
Undoubtedly the biggest ‘banger’ for your buck is Whitburn’s on Whitburn Street. Similar to a greasy spoon cafe of yester-year, but without the greasy, stinky truckers. They have a great atmosphere and if the quantity is more important to you than anything else… You’re in the right spot.
∙ Fri – Sat – 08:30-17:00
∙ Sun – 10:00-15:00

#5 – ‘Spoons’ – Jewel of The Severn (Wetherspoons)
No breako list is complete without ‘Spoons’ and very little write up needed as you know what you get at the Jewel of The Severn. Wetherspoons is located on the High Street, a few meters up the road from Peepo’s.
∙ Daily – 08:00-23:00
