The Jesmond store will also be serving a range of “over ice drinks” such as Cloudy Lemonade and an Iced Mocha, which are only available in a limited number of Greggs shops across the country.

Lucy McGivena, the shop’s manager, has given customers an insight into what they can expect from the brand new shop.

She said: “We can’t wait to welcome both Greggs fans and new customers to our brand-new shop.
