diningBreakfast at Bank House

Our aim is to give you a breakfast to remember using fresh local produce. Free range  eggs, our Sausages, bacon and black pudding comes from the award wining Cranston’s. The home made bread uses stone ground organic flour from the Watermill who also supply us with the oats for the much liked and well reviewed porridge.

I have supplied the table with locally produced jams and chutneys. We now also have on the table Marmalades from Dalemain. Dalemain hosts the World Famous Marmalade Festival. All the teas and coffees in the bedrooms and served at breakfast are fair-trade. The orange juice is freshly squeezed and the fruit salad also made that morning only using fresh fruit. Special dietary requirements of our guests such as gluten free menu we will always strive to meet.


Below is a lovely video produced by Nurture Eden it really shows what Bank House's approach to locally sourced quality food is and how lucky we are in this area with such fantastic producers. You also get a lovely idea of Eden and places you can visit to have your own experience and maybe purchase some of Eden's products.
