From Darlington to Bamburgh and everywhere in between, we've rounded up some of the best delicatessens

Sometimes you need something a little bit specialist to really set your meal off. Whether you’re after a hamper of goodies or just a light snack, these leading North East delicatessens stock everything from cheeses to chutneys.

Adriano’s Deli

Adriano’s brings a little slice of Italy to Gosforth with a delicious deli and similarly tasty restaurant next door. Good food, good wine, good atmosphere. Head to the deli for a light bite or to pick up something special to take home. 

84-90 High Street, Gosforth NE3 1HB

The Black Olive Deli

The Black Olive Deli in Darlington has been established since 1973, so it would be fair to say they know what they’re doing. A range of homemade savoury and sweet treats are on offer, baked fresh daily. Don’t forget to check out the shelves upon shelves of homemade chutneys and jams either.

9 Grange Road, Darlington DL1 5NG


An Italian delicatessen and coffee shop, Borrelli’s has a great range of light bite options to choose from. Whether you’re in the mood for a little wine and cheese, a pasta dish or even just a cuppa and a biscuit, they’ll have something to suit. 

3 Danby Wynd, Yarm TS15 9SF 

The Corbridge Larder

Have any hamper you desire at the Corbridge Larder; whether you’re a chocolate lover, an aspiring chef or in the mood for something festive, there’ll be a hamper for you. Much of the produce is locally sourced and the onsite Heron Café serves delicious breakfasts, brunches and lunches. 

18 Hill Street, Corbridge NE45 5AA 

The Deli Around The Corner

This family-run deli is a real must-visit for North East foodies. You’ll find big local names here including Mordue Brewery, The Brownie Bar and Doddington Dairy.

61 Hotspur Street, Tynemouth NE30 4EE 

Dene’s Deli

‘Made to order’ is one of our favourite phrases and, happily, anything you order from Dene’s Deli will be exactly that. For added excitement keep an eye out for regular competitions with the aim of finding creative new flavour combinations for use in their sandwiches.

244 Jesmond Road, Jesmond NE2 1LD

Il Piccolo

he range of Italian cured meats on offer here go very well with the drinks selection available – think fine wines, beers and Prosecco. Be sure to leave room for the home-baked bread, cakes and biscuits too, then wash it all down with an Italian coffee.

St Helen’s Street, Corbridge NE45 5BE

JP’s Deli and Café

You’ll find a little bit of everything at JP’s Deli and Café including home-made bread, sausages, quiches (which are extremely popular), Scotch eggs and a variety of locally sourced produce. 

96 High Street, North Berwick EH39 4HE

Lewis & Cooper

Fresh food from around the globe can be found here. The meat and fish selection includes everything from bacon to crab and their cheeses are sourced from Yorkshire to Snowdonia. There’s even the option to take a little of everything from each department and have it stashed in a handy hamper if you’re off for a day out.

109 High Street, Yarm TS15 9BB

Grainger Market

It may just have celebrated its 181st birthday, but the market's managed to keep itself young by bringing in new blood like Italian deli La Casa alongside its established names. With so many stalls here – meat, fish, bread, cakes, cheese, crêpes – it's basically the whole city's deli. 

131 Grainger Street, Newcastle NE1 5AE

The Pantry

The Pantry up in Bamburgh is a suitably delectable deli, befitting of such a picturesque location. A range of sandwiches and hot and cold drinks are served – perfect for taking out for snacking on as you explore the area – as well milk, butter, eggs, home-baked bread and a range of tempting delicacies.

13 Front Street, Bamburgh NE69 7BW

Trencherman Fine Foods

Head along to Trencherman Fine Foods and try a whole host of rare and delicious nibbles. Meats, pies and pâtés can be found in the deli, while, elsewhere on the premises, they stock caviar, a good range of cheeses, beers, wines and many other treats.

Barnard Castle DL12 9PL

Tully’s of Rothbury

As well as standard deli fare (meats, cheeses, fruit, vegetables and what have you), Tully’s of Rothbury also have a great line in specialist foods, including wheat free, gluten free, meat free and dairy free and, with such dedication to their customers’ individual needs, it’d be rude not to pay them a visit.

High Street, Rothbury NE65 7TB
