Our award-winning breakfasts include a diverse range to suit all palates. Quality, locally sourced produce is used on our menu. We are very proud to be members of the Produced in Northumberland accredited scheme which supports our excellent, independent suppliers and producers in the region.
Breakfast is served at one large table, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast times are 8.00, 8.30, 9.00 and 9.30 am. We are happy to provide breakfast for earlier risers, on request. We ask that your breakfast and chosen time is ordered the night before, to ensure that it is served freshly-cooked-to-order and to your exact requirements.
Bacon, sausages and black pudding are sourced 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 from L. Robson & Sons, traditional fish smokers located in Craster. Trotters Family Bakers of Seahouses supply our bread. Free range eggs are also sourced locally. 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.
At Post Office House, we are strong supporters of shopping locally and keen to be as environmentally friendly where possible to reduce food mileage and waste, which also helps our small, independent businesses and local economy to thrive. This also applies to recycling; our paper, bottles, tins, cardboard and garden waste are recycled. We also recycle newspapers – for lighting our two stoves and also very useful for stuffing 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.
