The Dudley Breakfast

“Make sure you allocate an entire morning to relax and enjoy The Dudley breakfast.”

Breakfast is an event at The Dudley! Since opening in October 2013 we have become known for our incredible breakfasts. Every Room Rate Package at The Dudley includes breakfast for two in the Dining Room every day of your stay. 

“Breakfast is simply amazing.  We stayed for 3 nights and it was the highlight of our trip.
The breakfast menu was a culinary adventure.”

Start your breakfast journey with the Continental Buffet of fresh juices, yoghurt parfaits, fresh and preserved fruits and a selection of cereals.  Then, the biggest decision of the day – what to order as your hot option.  From classic Eggs Benedict to modern breakfast creations every palate is catered for with a selection of hot dishes.  Linger over another espresso, latte or a pot of leaf tea and simply relax.

Breakfast is served in the Dining Room with full service using fine crystal and Royal Doulton crockery.  We only use the highest quality of ingredients in all of our dishes, sourcing and showcasing local produce where possible.  Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Paleo options are available as part of our regular breakfast service and we will happily accommodate for specific food allergies and preferences.

“We’ve travelled the world and this is by far the best breakfast we’ve ever had.”
