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 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 quality, locally sourced Northumbrian produce 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. There is freshly toasted bread from our local, family bakers, together with our own homemade Seville marmalade and preserves to accompany. In addition we have a wide selection of Ringtons specialist teas or `Daily Bread’ freshly ground coffee from Pilgrims Coffee of Holy Island, all served to you as well. 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!
We will continue to carry out staggered breakfast times for each set of guests, but now with two sittings at 8 am and 9 am. This is essential as we only have two tables in our breakfast room and if we have three sets of guests staying, one table has to be cleaned, disinfected and re-laid for the third guests. We are happy to still offer 9.30 am, as pre-Covid, if you wish a relaxing start to your day. We are sorry but cooked breakfasts are not served earlier than 7.30 am. If you require an early start, then please discuss this with us prior to when making a reservation where we can arrange alternative options.
