Morning outside The Cotton Bale


Remember the days when pubs opened about 11 or 11.30am and then closed in the middle of the afternoon?

These days they can open at 7am and serve tea and coffee and breakfast.

Hah--Last year, I went to the grocery store to buy a six-pack of ale as a gift for some friends... and I was told that the city would not sell alcohol before noon. I had to go spend another 20 minutes picking out some appropriate NON-alcoholic beverage, 'cos I still needed a gift.

Is it like that in Hyde? They may open at 7am, but what time can the pubs start actually serving alcohol?

Interesting question to which (as a teetotaller) I don't actually have the answer.

I like breakfast at pubs very much. We have coffeeshops which open at 6:00 or 6:30 am and serve coffee, tea, sandwiches and cakes. I don't know pubs/taverns which open in the morning where you get a hot breakfast.

The idea about breakfast is cool, with tea and coffee and for me a cappuccino! :)
The place looks interesting!
