THE ARTISAN GATEWAY TO HADRIAN'S WALL


SAVOUR THE TASTES OF VALLUM COUNTRY

Come to Vallum and enjoy the produce of land once trod by the Roman auxiliaries who lived in the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall. We farm dairy cattle and crops while our community of artisan growers, smokers, bakers, chefs and ice cream makers stock our Tea Room, Restaurant and Shop. Our local food is raised and grown by us and our Northumbrian neighbours, and depending on the time of day, you may see our producers at work and chefs from all over the country picking their own and placing their orders at the unique Vallum Kitchen Garden. Our programme of experiences and events is growing a pace, and visitors also enjoy our wildlife walks, the outdoor play paddock, and the fresh produce, deli goods, artisan breads and patisserie at David Kennedy’s shop. Vallum - home of the tastes of Hadrian's Wall country. 
-Vicky and Peter Moffitt

    The butcher is closed bank holiday Monday and David Kennedy restaurant is only open for lunch this Monday.

    The new Grant’s Butcher’s shop at Vallum is going from strength to strength, with a huge range of fantastic produce and Robert Grant’s famous sausages. His produce is also used in the  baked goods at the David Kennedy stall at Tynemouth Market every Saturday and Sunday.
