The breakfast room was formerly the kitchen in Victorian/early 20th Century times, retaining the original sandstone surround for the former cooking Range which in recent years, houses 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 and vegans. 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. Guests have a choice of cooked breakfast times served at 8.00, 8.30, 9.00 and 9.30 am. We ask that your breakfast and chosen time is pre-ordered the night before so we can ensure that it is served freshly-cooked-to-order and to your exact requirements. In addition to our cooked variety, we provide freshly prepared fruit, natural yoghurt, homemade muesli, cereals, toast and our own homemade preserves.
Bacon, sausages and black pudding are sourced from Carter’s of Bamburgh, a Rick Stein’s Food Hero. The famous Craster Kippers and smoked salmon are also included on our menu. Bread is from a local, family-run bakery and free-range eggs are also from a local farm. In addition to the cooked variety we offer freshly prepared fruit, natural yoghurt, fruit juices, cereals and toast, together with a selection of Ringtons teas or `Daily Bread’ roasted and freshly-ground coffee, from Pilgrims Coffee on Holy Island.
The former role of Post Office House is acknowledged with vibrant post box fabric at the large window overlooking the courtyard. The post office theme extends to our wacky wing-back armchair with its’ brightly coloured stamp fabric.
