Today I’ve got another local gem for you all that I’m sure you’re going to love! One of the latest businesses to open its doors to the North East is Dovecot Bar which is located on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough. Situated across the road from the ever-popular duo of streets – Baker Street and Bedford Street, Dovecot is in a prime location for a couple of drinks with your friends on an evening. Boasting Middlesbrough’s longest bar and 40 different gins to choose from, it’s a newfound haven for anyone who loves a socialable gin and tonic. Although I’m yet to visit Dovecot on a bustling evening, I have been a couple of times during its first month of opening to sample their food menu and it’s definitely one to try! View Post
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of joining some other local bloggers for afternoon tea with a twist at the Karbon Grill restaurant in the Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Sunderland. The Karbon Grill is located directly opposite the Stadium of Light and is easily accessible. Lately I have been LOVING picky-teas, you know the kind where you get multiple portions of different types of food to try so you don’t get bored? On Tuesday I got to sample the American style afternoon tea which is new to the Karbon Grill menu. View Post
Portrack Lane in Stockton isn’t a place I would usually associate with nice places to eat or drink. Having previously worked on Portrack Lane with only Asda, Greggs and McDonalds within walking distance for lunch, I’ve never had much reason to go back when we moved premises. However, it wasn’t until recently me and my mam found out about Barwick’s Coffee Bar, situated in the car park of Collectables, right next to Jump 360. View Post
This week marks Roast Dinner Week so it seemed fitting to write a review on the last, but by no means least, eatery to open on Bedford Street in Middlesbrough – Roast. Roast is a specialist carvery shop that offers freshly roasted carvery sandwiches to takeaway. With a beautiful selection of locally sourced meats from North Yorkshire which change weekly, there’s always something new for meat-lovers to try. View Post
A few weeks ago me and my mam decided to venture to somewhere a little different to our beloved places in Middlesbrough and Norton by turning our sights to Stokesley instead. We decided to go to Bexters Tea Room situated just off the busy high street of Stokesley village. My mam’s friend’s sister owns the tea room so we decided to pop by for a spot of lunch on a wet and dreary day.
