Dukes Guest House – The Breakfast Experience

Unlike most guest houses and bed and breakfasts in Bath Dukes has a dedicated, professionally trained chef preparing sumptuous breakfasts for our guests. Breakfast is served from 7.30am till 9.30am Monday to Friday.  During the weekend breakfast is a more casual affair, which is ideal for those on a romantic weekend break wanting a lie in, with service running from 8am to 10am. Regardless of the day, breakfast at Dukes is a relaxed and indulgent experience and one that you are encouraged to enjoy. In order for each guest to experience this to its full it is advised that if you are travelling in a large family group or party that all breakfast orders are received between 9.30 and 10am.

Classic ‘Full English’

Our British breakfast is designed to ‘set you up’ for the rest of the day and comes with sausages and bacon from Terry and Son of Bath, lightly seasoned mushrooms delicately dressed in extra virgin olive oil, fresh free range eggs, and plump red tomatoes seasoned and grilled with thyme. A proper British breakfast wouldn’t be complete without a good portion of black pudding and at Dukes only the best ‘Stornoway’, award winning, black pudding from Scotland is served.


Dukes fully appreciate the need to cater for vegetarians, having vegetarians in our own family. The chef at Dukes takes great pride in making sure that the breakfasts are varied and flavoursome serving only the best smoked poached haddock, kippers and smoked salmon, all sourced through Kingfisher of Paignton in Devon. The eggs come as you like them, lightly scrambled, softly poached or fried any way up or down.  Every effort is made to make this a wholesome and delicious experience.  


Sweet home baked pastries, toast and jams, cereals, muesli and yoghurt, light and fluffy croissants are the staples of the continental option. Freshly prepared seasonal fruits, delicate slices of cold meats and cheese are also served and washed down with oodles of freshly brewed coffee which in true Dukes style is possibly the best served in any of the guest houses in Bath.

If all this isn’t enough to tempt you, Dukes breakfast chef also offers you homemade pancakes served with a drizzling of the finest maple syrup and thick dollops of Greek yogurt complemented with homemade red fruit compote.  Here at Dukes we also have a reputation for our Scottish porridge oats, served with a sprinkle of rich brown sugar and a wee dram of whisky for the gourmet offering!
