Help us keep our shelter

Please follow this link and make comments of support

These letters of support will be the most important thing we can do!.

We built the shelter as a response to the Covid pandemic.  It has since become a vital part of our business and village life. We have hosted many diners and drinkers underneath. Providing a safe space for people to socialise whilst things got back to normal.

We have celebrated weddings, remembered dear friends by holding funerals and much more.

We had the village Jubilee party here and made lanterns for the village Halloween lantern parade. We have held local makers markets here and also the village community carol concert. All only possible due to this shelter.

Our village has no community space. The pub is the only public building in the village, the pub is literally the hub of village life. This shelter has become a vital part of our business and our future sustainability relies on this.

This business is also our home and where we are raising our family. If the pub matters to you then please sign this petition!

This shelter was made with many helping hands from within the village. Constructed with wood sourced from a local forest and sawn by a local craftsman. We love our shelter and we hope you do too. Please show us your support here.

Please help stop Northumberland County Council from forcing its demolition.

Thank you very much

Rhian, Helen, Luke and Grace and the whole Feathers Inn team and family.

The highest quality beef from Galicia in the Northwest of Spain. Our Galician beef range comes from retired Frisona dairy cows between 6 and 8 years old. This type of ageing allows more natural grass-fed marbling of the beef. These older cows are chubbier animals, have a higher percentage fat content and as such have more marbling, giving these beef steaks a distinct and unique flavour. Originating in the Basque Country and often referred to as Txuleton or Basque Cider House Steak after a tradition of Basque farmers exchanging beef for cider at the Cider Houses.

Txuleton-Galician prime rib of beef for two (1kg) with fries, marinated piquillo peppers and a green salad with a cider dressing

Magro- Bavette of Galcian beef with fries, marinated piquillo peppers and a green salad with a cider dressing

Cordera- Local lamb shoulder slowly cooked over our fire- pit served with judion butter beans, potatoes, onions, peppers and garlic.

Arroz- Spanish rice, summer vegetables, herbs and wine with saffron topped with burnt aubergines and tahini

Bacalao- A Basque specialty – salt cod, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers gently cooked together till rich and delicious.

Dessert – churros e chocolate

Natural Basque Cider made from the blend of selected wild apples.Kupela which means “barrel” is where the natural fermentation of the apple must transform the sugar into alcohol which results into a fresh and fruity cider made only from natural apples.. It should be poured from about 30cm in height with a special cider pourer called ‘escanciador’, into a wide, tumbler thin glass; this way the bubbles of carbon dioxide are released, creating texture whilst releasing the aromas and qualities of the cider.

Kupela Basque Cider, 6% 75cl ideal to share (dry)

Kupela Sparkling Basque Cider, 4% 33cl (medium)
