All 95 pupils enjoyed a mini-full English breakfast at the village pub, the Chequers.
Landlord Richard McDowall even had to rush down the road to get extra supplies of locally-made sausages as the youngsters tucked into plates of tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage, bacon and scrambled egg and a piece of toast.
And they were served sugar-free juice as well.

She had been asking her dad to put on another breakfast for the school because her older brother, George, now 12, enjoyed one several years ago.
'It was actually good. It went very well and I think helpers, teachers and children all had something to eat and enjoyed it,' said Mr McDowall, who was originally persuaded to serve breakfast for the whole school 10 years ago.
And Ian Robertson, who is a former chairman of Watton branch of the National Farmers' Union, and his brother, Brian, exchanged their overalls for aprons and gloves to serve the youngsters.
Mr McDowall even had to rush down to Stow Bedon and buy more sausages from pig producer Marshall Warren, who runs a farm shop.
Unfortunately, the head teacher Joanne Weight had to miss out on a 'second' breakfast because of some scheduled training, but a number of her staff joined the day.
