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.
Afternoon tea is the perfect treat for celebrating a special occasion, date night or just because it's the weekend! Although we're still unable to visit restaurants and cafes to enjoy an afternoon tea, there's nothing stopping us from tucking into one at home or taking a box full of delicious delights on a picnic!

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!

Ditch the frying pan this Shrove Tuesday and head to one of these fantastic cafes in the North East for some delicious, decadent pancake stacks!
Bao Bar is tiny - a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of place. It's found on Chillingham Road in Heaton (just outside of Newcastle) and is a small, walk-in bar offering steamed buns, small plates and pared drinks.
Thali Tray is an Indian street food eatery found at Arch2 Brewpub & Kitchen in Ouseburn (just up the hill from Ouseburn Farm/ The Ship Inn). I've visited at least three times, and it's always been great. There you go, review done. Just kidding...
Happy 2020! As many of you will know, January can be a really slow month for lots of businesses in the food and drink industry as everyone has already indulged, feasted and spent all their cash in December during the festive season. However, if you've got any pennies left and are wanting to enjoy a meal out (albeit it on a budget), there are lots of fabulous foodie deals to be had this month in the North East.
