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.

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.

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 😉

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.

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.

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.
