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.
Lovely afternoon tea for my birthday.

Had a lovely meal in Blacks Corner with a fantastic ambience and extremely friendly and attentive staff. The only thing that let it down was we paid £4 for 4 olives, between 3 of us that wasn’t exactly pricey but it wasn’t satisfying either......maybe dish a few more out. Nothing to complain about though as excellent experience.
First class experience, never disappoints and will return and recommend to others.
We love it here. It's is a beautiful place to eat or drink. Love the addition of hot options on the menu as it's more like tapas, which is my favourite way to eat. Sunday evenings have a lovely relaxing atmosphere. it's just a shame food isn't available a bit later in the evening.
Great service, even though we did have a bit of a wait for the table it didn’t spoil the night and we were kept up to date. It was very busy so understandable. Staff were great!
An enjoyable evening was spoilt as we had to wait to be seated and the delay in receiving our food added to the frustration.
Superb for everything.
Another visit to blacks corner, five of us this time. Service, food , drinks all exceptional. Can’t wait for new menu.
Longer to wait than usual however good worth it as always
Fabulous, as always x
Second time we have been and had another brilliant evening. Food was delicious, the cheese and meats had been changed some our last visit so was great to try new things. such a relaxed atmosphere and great buzz to the place.
Friendly, helpful staff. Very good service. Good food and wine. Cosy atmosphere. Visited on several occasions, sometimes just a drink or a coffee, often for food. Well worth a visit and if you’re having you’re own dinner party some delicious cheeses to buy and take home.
We had a great table in the bay window . Service was excellent , friendly , attentive and knowledgeable. Food was very flavoursome . Had a great relaxing lunch . Will be booking again . First class , highly recommended
A great time had by all...the open fire was perfection.
Excellent- as always
Always love an evening at Blacks. Staff attentive with great customer service. Can’t wait to go back.
First time we have been to Blacks Corner but will be back. Hugely enjoyable relaxed experience with great food and service.
I met with two friends on a lunchtime. We shared a meat and cheese platter and three flatbreads. Needless to say, we had a bit to take home. Food was of very good quality and the ambience was just right for three lunching ladies. I live locally and have been meaning to visit for a while. It did not disappoint. A local author has just published a novel which refers to the eggs benedict at this place. Next time, I think. Been recommending it to friends already.
