An original bar and restaurant has opened in Yarm.
Marshall’s is the final venue for the operators of The Ship at Redmarshall and The Prickly Pear Bistro in Middlesbrough.
They revamped the old Union Arms by serving “cocktails, spirits and elixirs”, afternoon tea, tapas and dishes from around the world.

High Street patrons will be transported to the world of Dr Marshall, a rather “curious and eccentric” scientist of the 1870s who took a similar path to that of Phileas Fogg.
Its new operators have worked with pub group Greene King to revamp the venue since the lockdown.
Sally Marshall said: “We are delighted to be open and to give Yarm something a little original.
“The Union closed at the start of containment and was unable to reopen.
“We thought the location was ideal for us and came up with an idea that we thought might work in Yarm.
“We love High Street and really wanted to bring the building back to life with our own brand.
“As we are foodies, we worked with Greene King to change the kitchen layout to bring our menu to life.
“We revealed the story of Dr. Marshall who travels the world in search of the best herbs and spices to create interesting essences.
“We are also very happy to say that our Parmo ’round the world’ menu is served at Marshall’s.
“The cocktails are unusual and well worth a try!
Marshall’s website says, “A curious and eccentric scientist meets Phileas Fogg and then resides in Yarm.
“Come and travel across continents to discover the exciting spices of Asia, to the ultimate enchantment of a sumptuous Afternoon Tea.
“Our ‘tapas’ style meals will delight all appetites, young and old, as you can experience carefully selected cuisines from around the world.
“No menu would be complete without a selection from our famous Parmos, which has proven to be a favorite in Teesside and beyond.
“You can be happy to know that here at Marshall’s, we have spent years refining our cocktails, which continue to tell their own origin story.”
“Come on an adventure somewhere with a pinch of intrigue.”
“Watch the mood change from a cozy ‘tete a tete’ breakfast,” he adds, “to the sweet hubbub of friends meeting for lunch, then to the extravagance and opulence of 1920s, as the moon and stars appear at night. “
