The Blackbird, Ponteland
Originally a castle built by warriors in the 14th Century, The Blackbird is a cosy village pub with a colourful history. After a peace treaty was signed between the English and Scottish Earls, the Scots retreated, marching via Ponteland and sadly destroying the castle and much of the town. in 1597, the Old Castle was rebuilt by Mark Errington as a manor house, which later became an Inn. It was later restored in 1935, revealing beautiful Tudor fireplaces which can be seen today. With a fantastic selection of food and drinks, their Head Chef Ralph frequently changes their tantalising seasonal menu, which can be viewed here.
