Italian breakfast at Cafe Max on Benfleet High Road - a lovely treat in glorious sunshine on their garden terrace.

That's scrambled eggs on toasted ciabatta, two rashers of bacon, grilled cherry tomatoes and mushrooms - plus two flat whites. Yummy!

I have always thought them a bit expensive.

Then again it's always busy so what do I know?

Prices have gone up markedly, we walked to The Bull in Hockley on Sunday to meet up with friends.

3 Adult lunch meals, 4 kids meals and 1 side dish with drinks was just under £100. The portion sizes were also very stingy so won't be heading back in a hurry.

I vowed never to return to The Bull a long time ago.

Nice location, poor quality and value for money.

That’s definitely pricey, more so if the pub is still gaining from the 5pct reduced vat rate.

It was disgusting to be honest, especially when you consider we had to go and collect our own drinks and the food all turned up in a cardboard box inside a brown paper bag with plastic cutlery.

Robbing bastards

That sounds like one of my summer pub nights out Old Leigh when I was at sixth form.

Except the drinks were collected from a local off licence and there was no food.
