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.
As ever the ambience of Blacks Corner coupled with the delightful staff and delicious food make it a favourite place to visit. I took a friend for the first time , she loved the whole experience and will be back. Thank you
Absolutely great table, lovely atmosphere, good service, fab food for my friend's birthday. Very impressed. Thank you.
Love Blacks Corner so lucky to be able to walk !
High quality venue which is an asset to East Boldon
Really enjoyed first visit there to spend a Christmas gift voucher. Food was well presented and really good quality. Wine was lovely too and service and atmosphere was friendl but unobtrusive and my fiancée and I enjoyed a very pleasant couple of hours. Look forwards to returning in the future.
Amazing staff service (and food of course) love the toffee cake!
Lovely lunch for birthday celebrations with a complimentary glass of fizz...
Third visit in 3 weeks, love this place.
Lovely food and great service
Food is lovely but at the end of the day it’s expensive for a flat bread or a sandwich
Great lunch with friends. Loved the food and the atmosphere. Staff were helpful and efficient. Will definitely return. the
We enjoyed our evening at Black’s Corner restaurant and we had good recommendations from friends to attend here. The atmosphere was very good, the place was decorations beautifully and it obviously had returning customers. The waiter at the start was very helpful and recommended certain food and wines which is something we look for with a restaurant. It was nice that he went out of the way to ensure we were happy with our wine. He did forget about us as the evening progressed, however, but he was very good at the start. The food looked very good coming out. We have experienced a number of delicatessen/charcuterie style restaurants (as this is one of our favourite styles.) We had the ploughman’s board and were a little disappointed with the coordination of the flavours and didn’t quite understand why some items were on the plate. The actual cheese and meat including the pork pie were delicious though!! Combining it with the honey was my favourite. The baked Camembert was also very tasty and thoroughly enjoyed this. We would go back again, the atmosphere and the wine brought our experience up but we probably wouldn’t order the ploughman’s board again.
Great place to eat food fantastic staff great very helpful looking forward to our next visit
We were bought a £50 voucher for Christmas for two of us. Went at lunch time last Saturday, the place was quite busy, the restaurant design was very good, some tables, bench and stools and [email protected] area. We had an idea of the type of food after looking at the website. We enjoyed our experience. Do not expect the usual cooked lunch, this is more of a wine, cheese and charcuterie bar. Quite a busy menu, a little difficult to decide what to have. We had a large wooden board with a selection of cheeses, cured meat, bread, chutney, pickles, crackers, arlmonds etc. We also ordered smoked duck cured on toasted bread plus a small pot of hot spiced potatoes, tomato and onion. We ordered too much, so. Asked if we could take the leftovers home. No problem. We had two glasses of white wine. Total bill £45, they said we could come back to spend what was left on the voucher or buy something to take home, we bought more of the delicious smoked duck cured meat. Next time we go we will not order so much, maybe a flat bread with meat and other toppings. Good experience
Friendly, professional staff. Always pleasant and helpful. Lovely and cosy with the log burner and a coffee. Good food whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nice to pop in if you only want a coffee or a drink. Good community vibe.
A great afternoon at Blacks with delicious food!
Brilliant as always xxx
Great, friendly service and quality food.
One of our favourite places ! Staff are fabulous.
Food was absolutely amazing but we waited almost an hour from ordering to being served with any food. We noticed other tables being served food before us despite us ordering first. Staff were unapologetic about the wait :(
Excellent food and service; We were in a party of eight and everybody enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. If you deserve a treat, I would highly recommend Blacks Corner.
Lovely foid and great service
Absolutely fabulous wine food and service. Definitely a return trip soon
Afternoon tea, so not very busy, so can't comment on Atmosphere. How ever we did not feel the staff were very attentive, we had to ask them when we wanted extra drinks etc. they did not approach us and ask if we required anything further. The price has been increased since our last visit, but we felt we got less (cheese and meat on the board) We absolutely love our previous visits... very one was left a little disappointed this time.
