"There is no love sincerer than love of food" ...and we love to provide the very best food here at St Cuthbert's House.

We're always told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there's no better start than a St Cuthbert's House breakfast! You'll be eating amidst the elegance of the Cuthbert Room - and whilst we can't actually quote any research to prove that a beautiful room makes for a more enjoyable breakfast, we're sure it's true.

We serve breakfast for you between 8.15 - 9.15am on weekdays, and 8.30 - 9.45am at weekends. Everything is prepared fresh for your arrival in the dining room, and so (to provide a good choice, yet avoid long wait times and food wastage) we invite you to choose your main course before you turn in, and tell us what time you're aiming for. This makes for a much better breakfast than one that's been kept warm for an hour. If you would really rather order in the morning, that’s fine too - but you should anticipate a longer wait.

If you fancy treating yourself to a traditional, hearty Northumbrian Breakfast whilst you're here, you'll enjoy the highest quality ingredients, beautifully prepared and elegantly presented. And even if you're watching your waistline, you can enjoy it with a (relatively!) clear conscience, because none of it sees a frying pan.

You'll see how serious we are about where our food comes from when you browse our Suppliers page. We take great pride in sourcing as much as possible from local suppliers whose passion for food matches our own. But not every product we use can come from Northumberland - so then we take the same care in sourcing those things too, from coffee to wine, and cider. We can also sell you some of these fantastic products to take home with you, including our free-range eggs, honey, and home made marmalades.

We source  all of our meat from award-winning butcher Chris Green in Longframlington. He's passionate about his heritage and his produce, so his meat comes from locally-reared and fully traceable stock.

Our eggs come from Rob Ord's free-ranging hens on a nearby farm, and the yolks are so bright and yellow you almost need sunglasses. We don't fry them - they're much too good to do that to them - so you'll enjoy their mouth-watering splendour when lightly poached or gently scrambled.

Also on the menu you'll find delicious kedgeree, made with oak-smoked haddock from the Seahouses smokehouse. Of course, since this is the birthplace of the original kipper, our breakfast menu includes home-made Seahouses kipper pate too.

We've reprieved an old favourite dish for the menu too - Northumbrian Bubble & Squeak.  It's distinctly 'Northumbrian' because we use beautiful ancient and traditional varieties of potatoes from Carroll's Heritage Potatoes, which are sweet and delicious.  Theirs is a good story...

We can cater for special diets, so just tell us if there are things you need - or need to avoid.  Comprehensive allergy information is contained within our breakfast menu.  And of course, if there's something in particular you crave, or you like your eggs done somehow unusual, then just have a chat with us - we can usually oblige! 

You can also help yourself from the buffet table too, stocked with fruit, cereals (including our home-made muesli and toasted granola), home-made yoghurt, oven-baked pastries and and fresh fruit juices.

The preserves tray carries jams and marmalades stuffed with high-fruit content, and hand-made in small batches in our own kitchen - by our daughter Abi, who is Willow Cottage Preserves!  Why not take some home, as a gift for someone - or yourself!  You'll also find honey from the local Chain Bridge honey farm - which is well worth a visit, it's really very interesting!

We also grow our own herbs in our garden, and love to sometimes decorate your plate with beautiful nasturtiums from our kitchen-garden flower boxes!

And when our bread arrives each morning, delivered fresh from Trotter's Bakery just around the corner, it's often still warm.

You can see our Breakfast Menu below, and meet all of our Suppliers on this page.
