Cocktails at The Cow Shed Middlesbrough

A couple of months ago I was sat in Uno Momentos on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough when I spotted two new shops over the road, one called The Cow Shed and another called One 59. It looked like they were making the finishing touches to both of the venues as they weren’t quite open yet so I decided to do a bit of digging when I got home. I found out the One 59 is a bar and The Cow Shed is a gourmet burger shack and they’re actually attached to one another. As I’ve mentioned before, Adam and I have been on the hunt for the best burger so we were eager to give this one a try.

Bistrot Pierre Bar Middlesbrough

Bistrot Pierre kindly invited me along to visit their new Middlesbrough branch to sample their delectable menu that brings a taste of France to the North East. Serving up beautiful home cooked food that is freshly prepared daily using carefully sourced ingredients from local producers and artisan French producers and suppliers, it’s difficult to tell it’s a chain restaurant when you step foot into the French bistrot.  View Post

Seaview restaurant saltburn view

Sometimes the best places to visit are right on your doorstep. With the weather being as unpredictable as ever, it’s been nice to make the most of those rare warm and sunny days. One evening after a long slog in the gym, me and Adam jumped in the car and decided to get some chips for tea (we worked for it!). Whilst Redcar beach is a little closer, I much prefer Saltburn it seems like a real holiday destination despite it being just 15 minutes down the road. View Post

Acropolis Greek Taverna Middlesbrough - Hummus and Tzatziki

The food scene in Middlesbrough is booming at the moment, brimming with a great deal of diverse eateries for us to sink our teeth into. Gone are the days of having to decide between the Weatherspoons or the mediocre Italian, we now have a huge selection of specialist restaurants to choose from including Turkish, Mexican, Caribbean and Greek. What’s even better is the food is as authentic as it comes, you could enter a restaurant and be transported to a different corner of the world and that’s what I adore about the food industry. It’s not just about the food, but the whole dining experience. View Post

Eats form the Street Teesside Park

Back in the beginning when I first started this blog, my main goal was to share my love for my local community and document the lovely eating places I discover along the way. Although small, Middlesbrough is a fantastic area for events and one thing in particular that I’ve been loving over this past year is the monthly farmer’s markets taking place across the North East. Here I’ve been able to purchase homemade and locally grown produce right on my doorstep. I believe in supporting independent traders and much prefer the quality products they have to offer.  View Post
