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.

Have been to Blacks Corner on many occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the day. However for the second time been disappointed. Yesterday been the worst experience. Had a table of 3 booked in at 12.30 only to be told on arrival we could sit on the back wall which was already in full flow and quite noisy or have the table for 2 at the back but tables could not be pushed together so one would be sitting separate. My sister asked if we could sit in the window seating.... to be told you can’t have that every time........ very rude Expected to see the new menu only to be told It was happening Tuesday that was the same thing we were told the last time we were in. Also when it came to Desert we were told that the Lemon tart brûlée was in fact double the price stated on the Menu. All in all not the best Lunchtime we have had And think the staff need a lesson in Customer Service. Also would like to point out that the was one window seat vacant until about 10 minutes before we left. I look forward to your reply Regards Jane Roper

Very impressed with Tom who looked after us during our visit. He was extremely knowledgable and talked us through the menu in detail. Very polite and attentive, overall fantastic service. We ordered two of the sharing boats, very nice. Will definitely be returning.

Only reason I’m giving four stars for food and not five is because my eggs Benedict didn’t come with Wiltshire ham like on the menu. All other meals were beaut!

Our first experience far out-weighed our second. Mainly due to the service we had; our first waiter being far more professional with high levels of skill in attending to guests (unfortunately can’t remember his name). We returned with my brother and, although overall, we enjoyed our food and drink, the young waitress was a bit slapdash in her service to us.. dropping things, spilling wine, dirty glasses...we also were rushed due to our booking for 7:45 and kitchen closing at 8:45 .. this meant trying to guess how much or how little to order. It was hard to score service as our first experience would be 5 stars and our second 3.. so opted for 4!
