Character Breakfast

Our Character Breakfasts are extremely popular! With so many characters to meet throughout the year and delicious food to taste at Meadow Croft Kitchen, you’re bound to find the perfect event for your family.

At every event, each child will get a choice of breakfast from our chosen menu, a drink and the character will walk around to meet and greet each table. You’ll have a morning full of memories and lots of photo opportunities.

Tickets must be pre-booked.

Adults are welcome to order their own breakfast on the day (billed separately). Due to restaurant size, we can only accept a maximum of 2 adults per booking.

Meadow Croft Kitchen will try their best to seat bookings together if requested. Please email to submit your request.

Character Breakfasts are very popular, and we strongly recommend that you make your reservation as soon as tickets are released.

Tips to a great Poinsettia⁠

❤️Only buy a plant that has not been exposed to draughts as this can cause the leaves to drop suddenly. ⁠

❤️Keep the plant wrapped for the journey home to protect it from the cold. ⁠

❤️Do not overwater or let the plant dry out. Consistent watering is the key to a healthy plant, using tepid water if possible. If the leaves turn yellow or fall off it is incorrectly watered. Only water when the plant is noticeably dry, lift the plant up and if it feels light it needs watering. Watering can be done from the top of the pot or by standing the pot in water for half an hour and then allowing to drain freely.⁠

❤️Poinsettias need warmth and light but must be kept away from draughts including open windows, fireplaces, open doorways etc. ⁠
Temperatures between 15-22 degrees are ideal and preferably placed in a light spot.⁠
