Hello Everyone!

The Prickly Pear Bistro is a ‘hidden gem’ on the outskirts of Middlesbrough town. The unique ‘Spanish Courtyard-Esque’ venue is nestled in The TAD Centre. The Bistro oozes a certain rustic charm and stylish interior; exhibiting a large ‘Wall Art’ sculpture, inspired by succulent plants and wisteria. The entrance foyer area provides a glimpse of a unique, commissioned piece of glass sculpture, with sea, waves and nature being celebrated in a 3D stunning format.
