Hi, I'm Angela. In this blog, we hope to share the highlights of running a Northumberland country inn and introduce you to some of the people we are lucky enough to meet along the way.
It has to be said that we consider ourselves very lucky to live in Northumberland, with a treasure trove of local food producers on our doorstep. At the Pheasant Inn we are proud to support these local businesses, and use a great deal of their produce and home-grown food in our menus. And, there is one local lady without whom our ‘traditional Engish breakfast’ simply wouldn’t be the same. Our free range eggs come fresh, everyday from her farm just ‘up the road’.
Hazel is one of those rare people that always has a welcoming smile and a story to tell. She lives on the farm with the big red roof, but is more famed in our area for her fab free range eggs and her devotion to her chickens.
Hazel’s chickens live in a beautiful spot, surrounded by some of the most beautiful Northumberland countryside to be seen. They have more than enough space to roam freely, relax and socialise. On the day we visited recently, they were undoubtedly a little camera shy at first, but once they got warmed up, their photogenic side definitely began to shine.
