Scoop and Bean

You are going to think I’m crazy doing an ice cream review in October, especially when this morning (*EDIT – I started writing this on Tuesday!) was so foggy and cold and definitely Autumn weather, but by lunchtime in South Shields the sun was shining and I couldn’t resist stopping by new ice cream parlour Scoop and Bean.

It’s housed in what look likes white marquees on the seafront (right next to the fairground) and has a cool modern interior with plenty of seating, as well as outdoor seating.

They have over 30 ice cream flavours, as well as cakes/brownies, some savoury food like sausage rolls and pies, ice cream milkshakes, sundaes and hot drinks.

I ordered a two scoop ice cream cone (£3)(which comes in a sugar cone) of pumpkin spice ice cream and kinder bueno ice cream. Now, I’m the first to admit that that flavour combination didn’t go together! But each one was delicious! You can get complimentary toppings like sprinkles, chocolate flakes etc.

It doesn’t look like a lot, but these cones were huge and filled with generous scoops of ice cream. 

I liked how they had seasonal ice cream flavours, and lots of seating, and a big menu with very reasonable prices. I’ll be back, and the weather won’t stop me.

  1. South Shields seems to be a great place for ice cream, although I don’t really get there much! I like the marquee look and it’s good that the toppings were complimentary. I wonder whether they’ll keep changing the flavours with the seasons! x

    P.S it’s never too cold for ice cream 🙂

    1. Thanks for your comment Ami! I do hope they keep changing the flavours as it means you’re in for a surprise when you go back!
