SIX Steyning restaurants are rustling up special breakfasts to tempt hungry morning crowds in order raise money for charity.

‘Breakfasts for Oxfam’ are part of the Steyning Food and Drink Festival and will be taking place every Saturday or Sunday at a different foodie location.

Last Sunday was the first breakfast hosted by The Cobblestone Tea House who served up a ‘very full’ English breakfast.

Owner, Edward Woodward, said: “It was a really good day and a nice crowd. There was a buzzy atmosphere and it was nice to see mix of regulars and those just out for the festival, who were upbeat and excited. Everyone said that the food was fantastic and liked that it was made with local produce and was a quintessentially English meal. The festival started as a small idea which just snowballed and now we are thinking how did we pull this off?”

For every plate sold, £1 will go towards Oxfam.

The High Street Oxfam shop has been in Steyning since 2011, manager Gail Armstrong said: “We are really privilege to be invited into the festival and it’s a great way to promote our ‘grow campaign’ which is a food justice campaign, so it links in nicely.”
