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.
The perfect place to relax. Very grown up, there’s no where else like it in the area
Despite booking a table,our party was seated st the end of a table with room only for 2. The other party of 4 was asked to move along which did give us slightly more room. The food was very nice, but service was poor. Our table was booked for 11am and we were served our good just after noon
Food was amazing, but the service wasn’t. We arrived intending to have a drink before we sat down, the lady took us to our table and dumped us with the menus, no explanation like everyone else received and no drinks menu. We also felt a touch ignored as we waited a long time for our order to be taken. The amibience is very nice, but when paying good prices fir good food, I expect the service to be equally good.
Really lovely meal and setting and returning for my birthday.
Simply wonderful from service to efficiency from staff, wine amazing, food fantastic!!
Fabulous! Brought my Grandma for the first time and we shall be back!
Great food as always an overall enjoyable Sunday afternoon lunch
The menu is unreal! Food is fantastic and the staff are always great. Absolutely love this place! 5 star rating in every respect and we will be back soon
Fabulous.... The quality and presentation of food is fantastic.i will definitely return.
A little bit too dark and a little light with the cheese portion but otherwise excellent combinations textures and flavours
Excellent food & relaxed atmosphere.
Fantastic venue, friendly, great staff and atmosphere . Love visiting Blacks
A catch up with the girl friends over an extended lunch. Food perfect. The service as usual could not be faulted. Nice to have such a welcoming local place to eat.
Amazing food, atmosphere and service
Lovely relaxed atmosphere and beautifully presented food. Tasty too. We’ll definitely be back to try the other things on the menu!
Lovely meal however there was a shortage on a few items such as ham , carrot cake etc but would return again
Amazing once again
First time having brunch here and it was lovely. Everything perfect as usual.
Fantastic evening as always!
Our favourite place to eat and socialise! Excellent menu choice, and fantastic customer service. Always a treat.
Lovely food and great service.
Lovely food and lovely service. Felt like we were really looked after and always made sure we had enough to eat and drink.
Afternoon tea with proseco. Amazing. Variety, taste and presentation was fab. Would highly recommend. What a great treat.
We got afternoon tea for 5 people and it came out on two lovely servers..there was not a third more on one of the platters and we asked for some more bread to make us feel like we had eaten. The lovely ladies brought us more bread . Cheese and meat and then some complimentary scones.. which then satisfied us.. We have afternoon tea as often as we can and usually struggle to finish it all but unfortunately not on this occasion.
I booked our table on line and requested not to be sat at the high table in the middle of the restaurant as I’ve had back surgery and find high seats uncomfortable. Unfortunately we were sat at the high table. The member of staff who seated us was apologetic but couldn’t resolve the situation as she said that reservations don’t cover individual seat choice. Maybe this could be stated on the website to avoid disappointment and discomfort! Beautiful food and service though and will be coming back even if I have to bring a cushion 😀
