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 our guests can warm up in front of our 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. Quality, locally sourced produce is used on our menu including `Bamburgh Bangers’ and the world-famous Craster kippers. In addition to the cooked variety, we provide freshly prepared fruit, natural yoghurt or homemade muesli/cereal. Toast is freshly toasted using bread from our local, family bakers and our own homemade preserves are also available. Due to the current climate and in the interests of distancing measures, both tables now have their own separate buffet areas with single portion cereals, sauces, mustards, yoghurt and our homemade preserves, now in small jars, which are yours for the duration of your stay. We also serve a wide selection of Ringtons teas or `Daily Bread’ roasted, ground coffee from Pilgrims Coffee on Holy Island, all served to your table.
We grow most of our own herbs and nasturtiums; these colourful flowers and peppery leaves are used to decorate our breakfast dishes and are edible too!
For physical distancing measures, we have provided two tables of two which are around 1.5 metres apart and two sets of guests can be seated at a safe distance. The larger of the two tables can seat four but this would only apply to guests who are in a support bubble. We ask that your breakfast choices and chosen time are pre-ordered the night before (as per pre-COVID) to ensure that it is served freshly-cooked-to-order and to your exact requirements. Guests are also asked to stagger breakfast times, between *8 am and 9.45 am, this is to reduce the number of guests in the Breakfast Room where possible and this is discussed with you on arrival.
*We do not normally serve cooked breakfasts earlier than 7.30 am. If you require an early start, then please discuss this with us prior to making a reservation.
