A FULL English breakfast is a treat on any day of the week but one Taunton B&B has been awarded gold for the sizzle of its sausage.

Louise and Simon Tilden, owners of The Loft Room in South Road, were pleasantly surprised to receive the accolade following a secret visit by Taste of the West.

They had celebrated their second wedding anniversary that morning with a champagne toast, little knowing they would later have even more cause to celebrate.

Louise said: “We can’t believe it, we’re utterly delighted. When we entered I thought at best we might get a bronze, being newcomers in Taunton.

“As the judges – a couple, we thought – were checking out, they revealed they were from Taste of the West and we had a bit of a laugh and a joke about how brilliantly they had disguised themselves, because we honestly didn’t have a clue.”

In their feedback, the judges commended the B&B’s “amazing” breakfast and its proud use and promotion of local suppliers. They said: “We would definitely stay again – they are doing a great job!”
