Northumberland pub's new tipi restaurant providing protection from unpredictable British weather
A tipi restaurant is set to provide a warm welcome to customers at Northumberland pub.
Chefs at The Northumberland Arms, at West Thirston, Felton, are welcoming customers back to the venue with a new menu – with dishes taking inspiration from around the world.
And diners won’t have to worry about a sudden downpour ruining their meal, with the new structure offering protection from unpredictable British weather.
Stuart Young of the Northumberland Pub Company, which owns The Northumberland Arms, believes the tipi will be very popular.
“We are delighted to be finally welcoming customers back to the pub and hopefully it won’t be long before we can invite people indoors too,” he said.
“Until then we think our tipi restaurant is a great way to make the most of al fresco dining without having to worry about the weather – and we have plenty of outdoor seating for the brighter days too.
“We’re really pleased with our reopening menu and the new look outdoors and I’m confident they will both be a big hit with our customers.”
The new menu offers a variety of starters and light bites, including chicken terrine, the Northumberland grazing platter for two, wasabi salmon and venison bolognese, with a choice of sandwiches.
Those looking for something more substantial can choose from a wide range of mains such as fish of the day, Northumberland Arms house ribeye, garlic roast chicken breast, slow cooked pork belly and pan fried salmon.
There will also be a selection of street food on offer, with dishes including chicken shawarma, Vietnamese pickled ginger noodle box, harissa spiced lamb flat breads, sweet Korean pork bao buns and Brown Ale BBQ chicken wings.
And along with the tipi, the pub has invested in a wide range of new outdoor furniture so customers can make the most of the warmer months.
Those wishing to dine in the outdoor tipi restaurant must book in advance by calling 01670 787370, with a £10 deposit per person to secure a booking, while uncovered, outdoor seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
The rule of six will apply and customers are expected to maintain social distancing when moving around outdoors.
