Inspired by Scotland’s first ever steam locomotive, which
was acquired by the Duke of Portland to transport coal from
Kilmarnock to Troon, The Duke is a classic all-day café bar
serving everything from coffee to cocktails
(and all points in between).


Throughout the day, we serve a tempting array of breakfast, 
sandwiches and favourites, with an emphasis on classic comfort
dishes made with the finest local ingredients. Our chefs rustle up
daily specials on the regular.

Proper coffee is our passion, and we have partnered with the equally 
enthusiastic artisans at Rocket Monkey, who live, breathe and
(hardly ever) sleep coffee. Order a cup made with their small batch,
ethically-sourced Ethiopian or Brazilian beans and then try telling
us they don’t make the best coffee you ever tasted!

a few of our bar bites. We’re here till late if you want to make an
evening of it.
