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 […]

Man vs Food, South Shields

Now, I’m going to be honest with you here. Man Vs Food in South Shields (they also have a branch in Heaton as well) is not somewhere that I would ever choose to visit. I’m not into huge portions of meat smothered in BBQ sauces which is impossible to finish. However, I was not making […]
