After an eternal winter of closed hospitality, the light at the end of the tunnel seems in sight. As the weather brightens up towards Spring, there's the hope that if all goes according to the government's roadmap plan that outdoor hospitality will be able to open up from the 12th April. From burgers and pizzas to afternoon tea and sweet treats, here are some restaurants across the North East with outdoor seating areas that I can't wait to visit.
I've pulled together a list of 20+ local, independent places that are offering sweet treats that you can enjoy in your home. Some only deliver to certain postcodes, some are for collection only, and some are only available at certain times - but, most definitely, they are all delicious!

When we arrived at the closest Toby Carvery we were shocked to see a huge queue leading out … Continue reading Deano’s
With our 1 year wedding anniversary approaching, and some Lumely Castle gift vouchers that had never been used; we booked ourselves in for an Elizabethan Banquet last Saturday evening. (It also helped that they had a special offer on, and instead of paying the usual £35 per person, it was only £27.50 per person!) We … Continue reading Elizabethan Banquet
