A popular food venue has launched a new summer menu reflecting the finest seasonal British produce.

Locally sourced meat and fish are sharing the stage with hand crafted pies and Northumbrian cheese at The Northumberland Arms, at Felton – where diners can opt to eat in or outside on a picturesque terrace overlooking the River Coquet.

Starters on the new menu include twice-baked Cheddar soufflé, ham hock terrine with onion chutney, house pickles, a soft hen’s egg and puff pastry soldiers and hot smoked sea trout with pickled cucumber, buttermilk, crispy sourdough and fresh apple and coriander salad.

There then comes a choice of classic dishes, from steak frites with watercress and shallot salad or a Northumberland Arms burger made from beef sourced from the nearby Blagdon Estate to traditional fish and chips.
