The Doyle Collection hotels homemade Guinness Bread is a staple on the menu at all their restaurants. Served as a side or a light bite, this deliciously moorish bread has almost a cake-like texture and can be enjoyed as it is, or accompanied by smoked salmon for breakfast or perhaps Dorset Crab with apple and mayonnaise as a quick lunchtime bite.
