Food and drink in Northumberland

Forkfuls of local food
Take one diverse county, add a sprig of coast, a dash of countryside and a sprinkling of passionate producers. The result is Northumberland’s fresh seafood, outstanding restaurants, locally brewed tipples and fantastic food and drink festivals.

There's nothing that food won't fix

Sample smoked kippers, taste tea at the home of Earl Grey himself, shell out on exquisite seafood and sip on Mead fit for monks on Lindisfarne Island in Northumberland.

Here, eggs can be bought fresh from farmers’ markets, bread is made with flour ground in Northumberland’s oldest working water mill, and ice cream that’s made on an award-winning local dairy farm.

Taste local tipples from one of our excellent breweries, gin distillers and mead producers.
