Season's greetings

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Blackbird

Christmas may still be a few months away but the countdown at the venue has well and truly begun.

Whether you’re visiting us to sample some delicious seasonal dishes, planning a festive party or you want to celebrate the New Year in style this year – the Blackbird is the place to do it.

And there’s good news for fans of our tipi restaurant because it’s back by popular demand, along with a new street food kitchen.

Christmas parties

Our unique Minstrel Gallery can be hired for private dining or parties, with either our regular and Christmas menu or our chefs can create a bespoke meal for you to enjoy.

The festive tipi will also be available to hire for larger groups, email or call us on 01661 822684 to enquire about menus and prices.

New Year’s Eve

Ring in the New Year at the Blackbird!

We’ll be serving a selection of street food plus our regular menu from midday to 9pm and getting the party started with a guest DJ, saxophone player and fireworks. Call us on 01661 822684 or email to book.

New Year’s Day

We’re delighted that the Wheelbarrow Race will be returning to Ponteland this year, starting and ending at the Blackbird. Find the sign up form here.

We’ll be serving pizza, street food and hot drinks all day so supporters can keep the celebrations going even after the race is over.
