Breakfast at Woodlands Farm

Breakfast is everything. The beginning, the first thing. It is the mouthful that is the commitment to a new day, a continuing life. A.A. Gill (Renowned Sunday Times Food Critic and Columnist)

We offer an extensive breakfast menu using locally sourced ingredients.  We are lucky to have quality producers, many within a 15 mile radius of Woodlands Farm.  We bake our own bread and make our own marmalade using Seville oranges sourced from our local market in Northallerton.

Amy is the Chef and trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine in London before starting her career as a Freelance Chef in the Capital.  Amy moved back home to Yorkshire in 2006 and worked for Bettys Cookery School in Harrogate (part of the Yorkshire’s famous Bettys Cafe Tea Room business) as a Senior Course Tutor for 9 years (see Food and Drink). 

In December 2017, we were awarded a Gold award by North Yorkshire Healthier Choices campaign and in May 2018, the AA awarded us their Breakfast Award after a surprise Overnight Inspection.  In July 2018, we were shortlisted for the Eviivo award for the Tastiest Breakfast which saw Amy cook in front of a panel of Judges including TV Celebrity Chef Phil Vickery.

Breakfast is served in The Saddle Room in the main farmhouse between 7.30-9.30am and is £12.50 per adult or £6.95 per child (under 12 yrs). We do not include breakfast in our room rate so guests have the flexibility of choosing whether they want to have breakfast with us or not.  We ask guests to pre-order breakfast the night before so we are able to offer our extended menu and reduce food waste.

Below is a sample Breakfast Menu showing some of the dishes on offer. We also do a monthly/seasonal special breakfast dish too.  Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.  We can cater for Gluten-Free, Vegan and other diets, just ask and we can discuss your requirements.

Woodlands Farm makes every effort to comply with the dietary requirements of our guests. Please notify us of your specific dietary requirements to ensure we are able to provide accurate information and advice on the ingredients and allergens in our dishes. At Woodlands Farm, food is prepared in one kitchen so allergen based meals are prepared in the same area as allergen free meals, therefore we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute separation of ingredients.
