Around the world in 13 light bites at The Blackbird

Diners can travel the world from the comfort of The Blackbird, Ponteland thanks to a new menu of globally-inspired light bites.

The pub has unveiled its new spring selection of sandwiches, mains and dirty fries – served throughout the day until 5pm.

Along with classic British favourites, chefs have taken inspiration from countries including Morocco, France and Japan – with sandwiches and wraps filled with everything from prawns in a Marie Rose sauce, pan-fried minute steak and haddock goujons to crispy chilli beef and sweet potato falafel.

Along with classic British dishes such as bubble and squeak and steak and chips, the main menu features Moroccan lamb with flatbread, smoked yoghurt and pickled lemon; French-trimmed pork chop with hispi cabbage and champ mash; and pan-fried sea trout with chorizo, caperberries and smoked paprika oil.

Meanwhile, the dirty fries options include flavours from Japan and Mexico – from teriyaki and marinated pork belly, spring onion, sesame seeds and teriyaki sauce; to spicy cheese sauce, crushed nachos and jalapeños; and slow-cooked beef brisket with sticky barbecue sauce and spring onions.

Vegan and gluten-free options are also available across the menu.
