café shrub

At café shrub we are inspired by the fantastic ingredients which the North East of England has to offer us, and the passion of the local producers and suppliers.

That’s why we’ve focused on a fresh seasonal menu, sourcing from within Tyne & Wear, Northumberland and County Durham for everything from fresh fruit to fish and sausages to saucepans.

Our fresh, seasonal ingredients and produce have been locally sourced wherever possible to showcase what the Land of Oak & Iron and the wider North East region has to offer.  We support and promote smaller businesses in the region and encourage them to grow with us.  Below is a selection of our current suppliers, click to visit their website:
