Eggy Bread with fruit and honey
We have never had the chance to stop for breakfast but after reading their menu I knew it would be the perfect place to start our day after checking out from our Wigwam holiday in Northumberland.
Harry ordered a sausage sarnie (which is available all day). Priced at only £3.50 it was packed full of juicy sausages. The bread is freshly hand baked that morning on-site and was beautifully soft. Harry ended up sharing some of his sausages with his brother as he was too full but they were too good to waste.
Freshly baked croissants
Our two youngest selected a croissant from the menu - freshly baked and served with jam and butter at £1.80 again this is an inexpensive breakfast for a child that they'll enjoy.
Locally sourced Full English
Hubby ordered the Full English which was packed with local bacon, sausages, white and black pudding, mushroom, fried egg, tomato and toast. A fantastic breakfast featuring fresh and local products at only £6.50 is a steal! You can order a smaller portion (the Fox Cub breakfast) for £4.
Sweet eggy bread with honey and berries
I ordered the sweet eggy bread with chainbridge honey and berries (£4.25). The eggy bread was the nicest I have ever tasted. So much better than anything I could make myself at home. Savoury eggy bread costs just £2.50 and I'm going to order this next time - eggy bread and tomato ketchup will really take me back to my childhood!
The staff at The Running Fox are wonderful and are always on hand to check you are ok and ask if you would like a re-fill for you tea or coffee.
You cannot leave The Running Fox without buying a few treats from the counter to take home. Their homemade pies, quiches and cakes are the best money can buy and always packed full of ingredients and flavour. There really is no scrimping on quality. We selected a few items for lunch and were very kindly given a complimentary mince pie each to take home (before you make assumptions - they didn't know we were blogging).
There is also a basket of stale bread in a bucket by the door for you to help yourself to and feed the friendly ducks on the River Coquet outside. During one visit, when all of the 'duck bread' had ran out, the staff noticed the disappointed looks on our children's faces and very kindly gave us a loaf from their shelf. This really sums up The Running Fox - they are super friendly and really will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time there.
