The search is on to find four taste-testers to help choose the perfect recipe for a bespoke sausage, which will go on the menu at a new bar and restaurant.

Park Leisure is opening The Old Storehouse at its Amble Links Coastal Retreat and Holiday Park on Friday, November 29, after a £2million investment.

Those behind the development, creating at least 30 full-time jobs, want to put a special Amble Links sausage on the menu at the start of next year.

Three flavours of link, made by town-based butcher R C Roland and Son, will be going on trial – but only one can win.

Jeff Roland, owner of the butchers, which has been in the family since his great grandfather opened the shop in 1904, said: “We have worked up three recipes, and although I am not to be involved in the tasting itself, I am excited to find out which will tickle the taste buds of the blind tasters.”

The tasting will take place on Sunday, December 8, in The Old Storehouse, and the four testers will join Gazette editor Paul Larkin on the panel.

Jeremy Reuben, Park Leisure general manager for Amble, said: “It’s an honour to have a sausage link made just for us, by a well-known, local butcher.”
