BreakfastAward

Sally’s wonderful, generous breakfasts are without equal!  Individually made to order, her extensive (and ever evolving) menus offer something for everyone, including inspired vegan and vegetarian options.  Using as many local, high quality ingredients as possible including locally caught fish, Sally’s own special recipe Martineau sausages, her own home baked bread made with Northumbrian milled flour, and her own home made conserves, a Martineau breakfast is guaranteed to set you up for the day.

Breakfasts are taken at the communal dining table which provides a convivial atmosphere or you can opt to have a delicious, prettily presented continental breakfast hamper delivered to your bedroom door.
