By serving afternoon tea for two at £12 or £6.50 per person, it provides a value-for-money option for couples and/or families to treat themselves with.

Daniel Williams, 24, Middlesbrough, shares this sentiment:

“Having toured a few of the local tea rooms in recent times, here is right up there in terms of affordability and customer service.”

Remember Me Tea Rooms offer a wide range of selection in teas, scones, cakes and sandwiches. The Afternoon Tea offer includes, an option of a sandwich, scone and a slice of cake or a cupcake.

The food isn’t the only thing you can enjoy on your visit to the tea rooms; customers can also admire the 1930’s interior design as they indulge in their tea and cake.

Take a look at the décor for yourself

Michael Mills, 27, from Middlesbrough commented on his experience at the tea room and also indicated that the décor was a particular highlight:

“A friendly atmosphere and beautifully decorated throughout which gave an immediate great first impression as I entered the premises. They also had helpful staff and beautiful food; what’s not to love? Will definitely be visiting again.”

Another customer, Julie Sutherland, 36, Middlesbrough, did have some negative feedback, before complimenting the service herself:

“The scones were a bit dry and difficult to swallow without a sip of tea, however the staff made up for it with their cheery attitude and willing to please manner.”

Coffey hat-trick rescues point against Hallam

SHEFFIELD HALLAM MENS 2ND    3 – 3     TEESSIDE MEN’S 1ST

Hierl (x2), Santos                                                  HT: 2-1                                           Coffey x3

A late goal from Ashley Coffey earned Teesside Men’s 1st Team a deserved point in their eventful BUCS Northern 3B season opener against Sheffield Hallam Men’s 2nd.

After a bright start, Teesside won a penalty which was converted by Coffey, but a quick-fire double from Torben Hierl turned the game on it’s head.

Coffey expertly steered in a free-kick to restore parity shortly after the interval, only for the home side to re-take the lead again through their captain Santos.

Typical of the game’s chaotic nature, Jack Haydon fumbled a corner ten minutes from time which allowed Coffey to tap-in and complete his hat-trick.

Hierl, a constant threat for Hallam throughout, struck the bar and post in the dying stages, but Jack Stephens goal ultimately lived a charmed life.

After Hallam inflicted their only defeat of their 2015/16 league campaign a year ago, which they eventually won by five points, Teesside may value this as a valuable result as they aim to retain their title.

Teesside face the early basement club Leeds Beckett Men’s 3rd next Wednesday at Middlesbrough Sports Village as they look to kick start their title defence.

‘The reaction to our comeback has been humbling,’ Pigeon Detectives frontman Matt Bowman tells Tside ahead of Stockton KU Bar show

pgn

THE PIGEON DETECTIVES are back after three years. Credit: press.

THE PIGEON DETECTIVES were one of the most iconic bands of the ‘noughties.’ Their indie-rock anthems have been blasted from the speakers at the likes of Glastonbury, T in the Park and they have even been joined on stage by Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino to cover Jimi Hendrix.

Now, three years from their last LP, they are back with an upcoming new record and several tour dates. Tside quizzed front-man Matt Bowman about what is happening with the five-piece right now.

WHAT HAS THE REACTION BEEN LIKE SINCE YOU MENTIONED RELEASING NEW MUSIC?

“It has been overwhelmingly positive to be honest! We were a little taken aback by the amount of support we received when we announced the imminent release of a new track and also our fifth album.

“When you’re locked away writing a record you become immersed in a bubble and it becomes easy to convince yourself that everything has moved on in those two years and people just don’t care anymore.

“It appears we couldn’t have been more wrong though and the positivity from people with regards to our ‘come back’ has been humbling.”

THE UPCOMING TOUR IS SO INTIMATE – WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS?

“We wanted to rediscover the magic of playing live again. Live shows have always been where we’ve connected with fans and had shared experiences that people (including ourselves) can keep forever.

“It is a really exciting prospect for us to revisit some of these old venues in which we cut our teeth and learnt our trade as a band some 10 years ago. These are the shows where the unexpected happens, they’re a breeding ground for chaos and the thought of tearing it up in these tiny venues one last time was an opportunity we couldn’t turn down.

“I was surprised the whole tour sold out in a week, but that’s a testament to our loyal fan base!”

THE NEW ALBUM COMES OUT IN FEBRUARY – WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM IT?

“This album is reflective. It is a thank you and an apology. It is all the songs that we were never previously brave enough to write.

“It is the first time we have had enough self-belief to say ‘we hope you like the record, really we truly truly hope you like it, but if you don’t – who cares, we love it.’”

HAVE ANY BANDS PARTICULARLY INFLUENCED THE NEW RECORD?

“We do not really sit down and say ‘I’ve been listening to THIS band and THIS is how we should sound”. But as humans we can’t help but be influenced and driven by the things around us that excite or inspire us, so undoubtedly the answer would be yes (even if I can’t name the bands specifically).

“Personally I have been revisiting all my old favourite albums like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Vines, but then again that couldn’t be further away from the sound of the new record, so maybe not?!

“That was quite a conflicting answer. Sorry about that!”

CAN WE EXPECT A ‘GREATEST HITS‘ KIND OF SET FROM THE PIGEON DETECTIVES?

“We are turning up to these small venues to take names. It i s going to be all the ‘hits’ with a couple of new ones sandwiched in there for people to take a breather and enjoy.”

THE TOUR FINISHES IN STOCKTON-ON-TEES’ KU BAR – DO YOU HAVE ANY FOND MEMORIES OF PLAYING THE NORTH EAST?

“It wouldn’t feel like a tour without us playing the North East. It Is a great part of the world and we always have special gigs there.

“Stockton in particular has been the scene of some absolute chaos in the past. The KU Bar as venue lends itself to a real rock and roll shin dig! The crowd are within touching/smelling/spitting distance and the low ceiling just creates a cauldron of energy.

“I love playing gigs there and it will be a perfect sweat soaked way to draw this tour to an end.”

CAN WE BE HOPEFUL OF MORE TOURS AFTER THIS ONE?

“We already have the next tour planned, all the venues are booked and it is ready to go. We are going to get this tour dealt with and then boom, here is the next one – enjoy.”
