Our award-winning breakfasts include a range of options to suit all palates. Quality, locally sourced produce is used on our menu, including the famous `Bamburgh Bangers’ and Craster Kippers. In addition, we serve fresh fruit, natural yoghurt, cereals and toast, together with a selection of Ringtons teas of your choice or ground coffee, sourced from Pilgrims Roastery in Holy Island. Breakfast is served at a large table, in a friendly and informal atmosphere where guests can meet, exchange travelling experiences and tips. Breakfast times are between 8.00 am and 9.30 am, with half-hourly slots to choose from. Breakfast choices are ordered the night before and freshly cooked-to-order, therefore ready a short time after your chosen time in the morning. We are happy to provide breakfast at an earlier time, if required.
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; haddock, 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 mileage, 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, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan diets are also catered for. Please inform us with any special dietary requirements on booking, so we can obtain the necessary ingredients and therefore tailored to your individual needs.
