Not strictly digital but Emily has won the Digital Teesside quiz enough times! 

We all love a Bentley’s Coffee Shop here on Digital Teesside and this is such a great achievement in the current landscape that this week we’d like to give a mention to Bentley’s. 

With stores currently based in Middlesbrough, the coffee shop has just announced it is opening up three new venues in Debenham’s stores in Beverly, Scunthorpe and Scarborough throughout August. 

The shops are also offering the Eat Out To Help Out scheme so don’t forget to pop along and show them your support. 

Congratulations guys.
