Blackett’s of Bamburgh – Our evening meal

Blacketts - pork belly smOur final evening in Bamburgh.

I always adore the luxury of being on holiday when one can stroll down the road for a delicious meal at a local restaurant. Being able to walk down the road in the evening twilight and not worrying about parking the car or about missing a connecting train or bus.

Bamburgh is such a lovely Northumberland village. Castle, local history museum, shops selling local produce, village green. And not much else (Hey, I don’t want to make too much of it, or else, you’ll all want to come!) But, then, we love Northumberland as a county. It seems to tick all the boxes for what you expect of the English countryside; wide sandy beaches, little villages, quaint cafes, fabulous castles.

We’ve had a lovely few days here – so much fun breakfasting on local produce and wandering the castle walls.

My starter here was particularly tasty; Black pudding topped with mushroom and a dollop of goats cheese. Swimming in a sweet, rum sauce. Wow!
