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 […]
