Northerners say “yes” to Black Pudding in a Full English Breakfast
It’s official Northerners insist on having black pudding as part of their Full English Breakfast. Mitchell’s and Butler the national pub group recently surveyed 2000 people to find out what they think should be in a Full English breakfast. Apparently in London they want bubble and squeak with their breakfast and chips but no black pudding. Shocking behaviour if you ask me!!!
