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.


When it comes to drinks, we have a refreshingly affordable assortment of wines, beers and house pours – best served with friends and a few of our bar bites. We’re here till late if you want to make an evening of it.

Outdoor Dining & Drinks

Soak up the sunshine in our stylish outdoor terrace! Whether you’re looking for a bite to eat in the sun or a spot for a delicious morning coffee, our terrace provides the perfect place for a little Al Fresco dining.

Book Your Table

Reservations can be made online or by phone. If you have
any queries, or would like further information prior to
booking, you can also email us.
