Our breakfast room was formerly the kitchen in Victorian/early 20th Century times, retaining the original sandstone surround for the former cooking range, now housing a cosy Jøtul wood burning stove, lit in the colder months.
Our award-winning breakfasts include a diverse range to suit all palates including vegetarians. Quality, locally sourced produce is used on our menu including Carters of Bamburgh (one of Rick Stein’s Food Heroes) and world famous Craster kippers from L Robson and Sons. We are very proud to be members of the Produced in Northumberland accredited scheme. In addition to our cooked variety, we provide freshly prepared fruit, natural yoghurt, homemade muesli, cereals, toast and our own homemade preserves. We serve a selection of Ringtons teas/herbal teas or `Daily Bread’ roasted and freshly-ground coffee, from Pilgrims Coffee on Holy Island.
Due to social distancing rules, we have provided two tables of two which are around 2 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 household bubble . We ask that your breakfast choices and chosen time is pre-ordered the night before (as per pre-COVID arrangements) to ensure that it is served freshly-cooked-to-order and to your exact requirements. Although we can accommodate two sets of guests in the Breakfast Room, there will still be the option of staggered breakfast times, between 8 am and 9.30 am. Each table has it’s own little buffet area.
We grow most of our own herbs and nasturtiums; these colourful edible flowers and peppery leaves are used to decorate our breakfast dishes and are edible too! Our own homemade soda bread is also available by prior notice. This can be put in the special instructions if booking online or mention this if telephoning.
*We do not normally serve cooked breakfasts earlier than 8.00 am. If you require an early start, then alternative arrangements MUST be discussed with us PRIOR to making a reservation, please.
