Our award-winning breakfasts include a diverse range to suit all palates. Locally sourced, quality produce is used in our menu. In addition to the cooked variety, we offer fresh fruit, natural yoghurt, fruit juices, cereals and toast, together with a selection of Ringtons teas or ground coffee which is sourced from Pilgrims Coffee on Holy Island.
Breakfast is served at one large table, in a friendly and informal atmosphere and times are between 8.00 am and 9.30 am, with half-hourly slots to choose from. We ask that your breakfast and preferred time is ordered the night before, to ensure that it is served to you freshly-cooked-to-order. We are happy to provide breakfast for earlier risers, on request.
Bacon, sausages and black pudding come from Carter’s of Bamburgh, featured on BBC’s “Rick Stein’s Food Heroes“. Our delicious smoked fish including salmon and the world famous Craster Kippers are sourced from L. Robson & Sons, traditional fish smokers located in Craster. Free range eggs and bread are also sourced locally. We are very proud to be members of the `Produced in Northumberland’ scheme, set up in 2016, to help promote the many excellent independent food and beverage producers in our region.
We are strong supporters of `shopping local’ and keen to be as environmentally friendly where possible to reduce food mileag and waste, whilst at the same time helping our small, independent businesses and local economy. This also applies to recycling; all our paper, bottles, tins, cardboard and garden waste are recycled. We also recycle newspapers – for lighting our two stoves and also very useful for wet walking boots!
All our marmalade and jams are homemade on the premises. The blackberries used in our Blackberry jam are very local! They are hand-picked by ourselves, from the wild bushes in and around Belford in the Autumn season.
Gluten-free, coeliac, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan diets are also catered for by prior arrangement. Please inform us with any special dietary requirements on booking, so we can obtain any necessary ingredients, therefore tailored to your individual needs.
