Custodians Of A Great Tradition

Dedicted to the history, heritage, and culture of the English breakfast.


What is the English Breakfast Society ?

The English Breakfast Society (EBS) is a learned society of fellows, dedicated to the history and heritage of the traditional English breakfast. We are a non-profit organisation, staffed by volunteer enthusiasts, and completely independent of the retail, hospitality, or farming industries.

What is your mission ?

We research the tradition and history of the English breakfast to make it publicly available on this website, we also provide guidance and information to members of the media on all matters relating to the full English breakfast. Click here to see our English breakfast media coverage.

Why was Society founded ?

Our founding Chairman cares about a centuries old tradition, one that he saw falling into decline, and suffering from poor standards in preparation and ingredients. He felt that the tradition is one worth saving, and he works to restore the tradition of the English breakfast back to its former glory.

How can I become a Fellow ?

Members of our society hold the title of Fellow and are listed in the Fellows Directory. The only way to become a Fellow is to make a positive cultural contribution to the tradition. Fellows include actors, writers, diplomats, authors, producers, and fans who publicly paid homage to the tradition.

Where is your society based ?

We are headquartered in Hertfordshire, England, but through this website we have an international footprint and we welcome thousands of visitors every month from all over the world. The English Breakfast Society operates the most popular English breakfast website on the internet.
