Northumberland’s vegan revolution continues with new scoop shop in Bamburgh for well-loved Holy Island store, Pilgrims Gelato.

Pilgrims Gelato recently scooped their first scoop of gelato at their new Bamburgh Scoop Shop. The scoop shop is located within in the Walled Garden next to Blacketts of Bamburgh and is their second store with their first iconic store located on Holy Island. The Walled Garden is fast becoming a foodie mecca for visitors to the area with Eats, Shoots and Leaves wood fired pizzas and now Pilgrims Gelato serving from the rustic courtyard.

Founder of Pilgrims Gelato, Charlotte Thompson, commenting on the new premises said:

“With the continued great feedback from our Holy Island store we thought it was time to open a new shop in a new location for the 2022 season. We are delighted with the Bamburgh location as it works perfectly for us, stationed nicely between our original store on Holy Island and the Alnwick farm where I live and where our purpose-built gelato kitchen is based.

“Our opening weekend was a huge success and as a thank you to our customers continued support, we gave away free gelato between 1-2pm Friday and Saturday. We can’t wait to welcome more visitors at Bamburgh and introduce them to our gelato!”

Established on Holy Island in 2011, Pilgrims Gelato produce vegan gelato which is free from everything but flavour. With a family that suffers from a mixture of food intolerances, cousins and co-founders, Charlotte Thompson and Farah Weedon made it their mission to create a seriously tasty vegan gelato using the finest ingredients.

The Bamburgh Scoop Shop is now open daily between 10am-4pm and will be serving a selection of flavours including chocolate brownie mudslide, orange choc chip, sour raspberry and ginger, cookies and cream made with homemade cookies, caramel, and mint choc chip to name a few. You can also enjoy tins of Pilgrims Gelato from a selection of outlets across Northumberland.
