A Northumberland gastro pub has announced the launch of a brand-new globally inspired menu.

The Blackbird in Ponteland launched a ‘light bites’ menu which includes a selection of sandwiches, mains and ‘dirty’ fries, which will be served during the day until 5pm.

The menu is said to take customers around the world, as along with British classics, there will also be delicious dishes inspired by various countries.

Sandwiches will be served with traditional fillings such as prawns in Marie rose sauce, pan-fried steak, and the ‘Posh Fish Finger’ which is haddock goujons with lettuce and tartare sauce.

However, there is also an Asian crispy chilli beef wrap which is made up of Chinese lettuce, pak choi, red onion, red cabbage and coriander slaw, with sweet chilli and soy dressing as well as a Middle Eastern inspired sweet potato falafel wrap, with lettuce, spinach, tomato, rainbow slaw and lemon aioli.

The main menu will feature a selection of British dishes, as well as Moroccan Lamb and French-trimmed pork chop. The ‘dirty’ fries options range with flavours from Japan and Mexico.

The Blackbird have ensured that vegan and gluten-free options are available on the menu, to accommodate all eating preferences.
