About Blacks Corner
At Blacks Corner, small batch produce
is at the heart in this conversation of flavours and makers all striving to make small batch produce a reality.
The East Boldon restaurant works closely with
British farmhouse cheese producers, and
cured meat and charcuterie producers,
sourcing direct from farms to create a
menu of ‘taste pairings’ showcasing this
little-known British produce.
Set in a beautifully-restored Edwardian
corner building, Blacks Corner offers you
the chance to relax and unwind over a drink,
perhaps with a tasty savoury aperitif, such
as the intriguing-sounding Cornish seaweed
and cider luxury sausage, or maybe just
some toasted Valencia almonds, which are
imported weekly from Spain.
If you would like to catch up with friends
or colleagues over an informal meal, their
meat and cheeseboards would be ideal.
Alternatively, you can choose from a range of
flatbreads, small plates, crostini or baguettes.
Then why not round it all off with a refreshing
sorbet or a cake from the deli counter.
If you are not planning to dine, you’re still
free to sit back and savour a glass or bottle
of wine from their extensive list
They have sparkling wines and Champagnes
too, as well as ports – perfect as a digestif or
as an accompaniment to one of their cheese
boards. If wine is not your tipple of choice,
you’ll find a selection of gins, cocktails,
ciders, ales and lagers, as well as soft drinks.
The original Black family were traced and
contacted for old photographs to help with
the design, and the great, great grandson of the original owner and builder proudly
snipped the red ribbon to mark the
opening of Blacks Corner last September.
Blacks Corner was Runner Up at
the Northern Design Awards 2017 – in
the Restaurant and Bar category. It was nominated for a
Restaurant and Bar Design Award in the
UK and International Category of ‘Surface
Interiors’, and has been named a Diners
Choice winner multiple times.
Had an amazing birthday lunch here, fantastic service and beautiful fresh food!
Gorgeous food and great atmosphere. The staff are really lovely and helpful. Was a bit sad that they had ran out of patata bravas at 8pm on a Saturday night as there’s not a great deal of carbs on the menu, but the food was still great.
The staff on duty were so lovely! Made us feel very welcome and had such a lovely night. The food and drinks were incredible too. Can't wait to book again!
Fabulous as usual. Great breakfast and very attentive service.
I really enjoy going to blacks corner. But I find it’s a bit expensive. But I still enjoy going . They do nice olives. I just don’t like having a time limit on my evening out. But understand due to the place being small. As they need the tables. Other than that. It’s amazing 😉
Excellent service. Decent wine. Pricey cheese.
Really love atmosphere. Great food and good cocktails
Only the second time I’ve been and I don’t no why food was wonderful very helpful staff and lovely surroundings hope to call back a lot more it’s a little gem.
Excellent visit again, thank you
Fabulous atmosphere. Great friiendly service . Food always amazing and well presented The decor Ithroughtout is stunning..
Amazing place which we visit frequently. We have never had a bad or even slightly under par experience. The flatbreads and olives are absolutely gorgeous. All of the staff make you feel very welcome and I cannot fault their service. Very efficient and they seem to work really well together. The added bonus to this place is the deli down the road where you can buy some of the produce they use in the restaurant and re create some of the menu(well you can try😉) Only criticism is that there isn’t one in Cleadon!
Was very loud in a relatively small place seemed to be lots of groups of women all trying to talk louder than the others apart from that everything else was great
Absolutely loved the food and atmosphere. We had the shared board and quality of meats and cheeses was excellent. In an ideal world would have preferred breads to have been served instead of crackers but still delicious.
Excellent food and service
Can not fault the food or drinks absolutely perfect. Thought our table was to close to the next table. My wife even knocked a drink over trying to get into her seat.
Always a lovely ambience here . Great lunch. Going to try breakfast next time
As always, made welcome, great service, fantastic wine and a very refreshing pint. Food great. Well done guys keep up the good work..
Our server was very knowledgable about your menu and very pleasant. The food was delicious
Lovely food and wine, great venue but completely rushed to get off your table. Someone came over every 10 minutes or so to see if we had finished even though we clearly were still eating and drinking. They also brought the bill whilst we were still drinking. We would have ordered another bottle of wine had they not have. Shame because it spoils the experience. When you are spending in excess of £250 for a table of 4 you expect to be able to take your time and enjoy the experience.
Superb afternoon treat for my Dad's Birthday. Friendly, helpful, attentive staff. Lovely relaxing surroundings. Delicious food. Will definitely recommend and return again. Thank you.
Can't believe it has taken us so long to get along to Blacks Corner. We had a great time - amazing food, great atmosphere and setting and lovely staff. We will definitely be back!
Amazing as always and lovely specials for Valentines Day
