Sam and Sonya are keen that Eagle Mill is as sustainable as possible. To this end, they ensure that where possible, their breakfast materials are locally sourced. Their sausages, cured back bacon and black pudding are all produced by a local family butcher and when in season, tomatoes and mushrooms will reach your breakfast plate fresh from the fenland.
If you are lucky, during the autumn months, you will taste Eagle Mill’s own apple juice and Sam’s apple and plum jam is pretty tasty too.
With St Ives and Huntingdon close by, there is no shortage of excellent restaurants for guests to visit.
In Wyton, the Three Jolly Butchers offers tasty fare just a mile from Eagle Mill. http://www.thejollybutchers.co.uk
