Our cosy, welcoming Breakfast Room was the kitchen in Victorian times. The focal point is the characteristic, original sandstone surround for the former cooking range where guests can warm up in front of our lovely Jøtul wood-burning stove, lit in the colder months. Cheery, colourful post box fabric is dotted around as a nod toward the buildings’ previous role.
Our award-winning breakfasts include a diverse range to suit all palates including vegetarians. We use locally sourced Northumbrian produce on our menu including Carters of Bamburgh famous`Bamburgh Banger’ sausages and the world-famous Craster kippers. We also provide freshly prepared fruit every morning, served with natural yoghurt or homemade muesli/cereal. Bread is sourced from local family bakers, Trotters of Seahouses together with our own homemade Seville marmalade and preserves to accompany. There is a wide selection of Ringtons specialist teas or `Daily Bread’ freshly ground coffee from Pilgrims Coffee of Holy Island, to choose from. We grow most of our own herbs and nasturtiums; these colourful flowers and peppery leaves are used to decorate our breakfast dishes (when in season) and are edible too! For Vegans, we have a separate bespoke menu which is extra at £5 per room, per day.
Breakfasts are by pre-order the night before so they are freshly cooked-to-order at your chosen time. We continue to carry out staggered breakfast times for each set of guests, with two sittings at 8 am and 9 am. This is essential as we only have two tables in our breakfast room. With three different sets of guests staying, one table has to be cleaned, disinfected and re-laid for the third set of guests. Different times can be catered for if a group of three or four staying with us and are on the same table, where we are able to be more flexible on times.
We are sorry but cooked breakfasts are not served earlier than 7.30 am. If you require an early start, then this must be discussed this with us when making a reservation where we can arrange alternative options.
