Food & Drink

Feeling Hungry?

You can’t beat Northumberland for sheer variety when it comes to great places to eat.

After all, we have everything from a restaurant within one of Europe’s largest tree houses to traditional fish and chip shops selling locally caught cod and haddock. Also home of the famous Craster Kippers.

There’s our country pubs where you will find delicious local lamb and beef served with fresh vegetables and perhaps a pint of tasty ale from a local micro-brewery, or locally made Lindisfarne Mead. Local pubs such as The Plough in Ellington is just 2 miles away, serves food and good ales. The Widdrington Inn serves food and is great for families. A bit further away in Morpeth, a historic market town, there are pubs a plenty along with a variety of restaurants and cafes and even a cocktail bar. Amble to the north, is a great seaside town with award-winning fish and chips and a very tasty ice-cream parlour; well worth a visit during your stay.

We have an abundance of quaint tea shops within our villages and towns that can offer a treat after a hard day’s walking , cycling or simply exploring. We are proud of our food and we’ll always try to serve up our local specialities. Menus across the county boast highlights like Cheviot Lamb, fresh lobster, or asparagus grown on the grassy shores of Lindisfarne. The Drift Cafe is now located in Cresswell village, with fair prices and a wide ranging menu. We personally recommend the homemade scones!

Eat with us and we’ll excite your taste buds and give you some great food memories to take home with you. Be sure to visit our Northumberland markets to purchase locally grown farm produce.
