“We only use the best ingredients, we give free smiles with every visit, we will always fuss over your children or dog and appreciate your handbag,” say Mark and Mary, owners of Tea With Alice. We can’t disagree. They set up their friendly neighbourhood café after the arrival of their daughter, Alice, and have devoted boundless energy to making it a haven for travellers. There are toys, games and colouring for kids; bowls of water and biscuits for furry visitors.
The neon sign gleams in the window, colourful vintage furniture fills the café and personal trinkets litter the shelves. In the summer holidays workshops and activities – from pizza decorating to bread making – keep the little ones happy while you enjoy your meal.
Tea is loose leaf and the coffee is excellent. In the kitchen brother-in-law Paul cooks everything from scratch using the best ingredients in Country Durham. Home-made bread and Weardale artisan brie create a cheese sandwich to remember.
