The Northern Echo:

The business, which opened in June, has so far been a hit with customers who have raved about the ever-changing menu that offers flavours including bramble, rhubarb, strawberry and cherry.

The owners announced the good news on social media yesterday (August 28).

They said: "Over the next few weeks you may see some work being carried out in the shop. We will try and keep disruption to a minimum and there will be plenty of seating still both up and downstairs and we most definitely will be open.
