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.
Excellent menu, served in a beautifully decorated restaurant.
Very nice food and drink. Can be busy
Good food and drink selection. Very pleasant evening.
My daughters and I had a lovely lunch
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!
Lovely food and a wonderful take on afternoon tea. Fantastic cocktails. Exceptional service by the two young ladies.
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Waitress and waiter were very helpful when we asked for recommendations for what to order. They were also patient and friendly. The food was cooked to perfection and the drinks were all lovely. Can’t wait to return.
Last night was our first visit and once we navigated the menu all was good,food gorgeous,staff very helpful and friendly,great location,especially on a sunny evening,all in all a very positive experience,making my partners birthday a very enjoyable,memorable one,thanks to the girls for helping with the birthday cake and singing Happy Birthday with us,much appreciated,see you next time

Fantastic time with friends, beautiful food especially the cheese board, wine nice and service and atmosphere brilliant. Definately recommend it to friends.
Had an amazing afternoon. Food delicious & staff nice friendly & attentive.
Consistently good quality and service.
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!
Brilliant service, food delicious and excellent value for money. Relaxed atmosphere. All together a very enjoyable experience.
Food was delicious, staff friendly and helpful, will definitely return.
Always made to feel welcome by the very attentive staff. Will be back:)
Fantastic food and lovely atmosphere

Very enjoyable visit for all our family and the food and service were great
Excellent breakfast and coffee as usual. Service always excellent. It’s great to find this place it is always consistent in all areas.
The waiter who seated us was very knowledgeable and talked us through the menu. A lovely evening, enjoyable food and wine!
