What happened with the breakfast beans?

Mike said, when his full English arrived the morning after their night at The Seacrest: “Really tasty I must admit, only thing I might not do, I don’t like the idea over getting the beans out of a pot.”

Fraser pointed out: “I suppose you can always put it in but you can’t take it out… you can pick and choose, can’t you.”

When it came to scoring the hotel, Mike decided to deduct a point on the breakfast because of the ramekin.

“‘How was breakfast?’ Almost perfect, apart from having the beans in a ramekin. We’ll go with a nine.”

It didn’t harm his perception of the venue too much, however, as he said he would definitely stay again.
