Back to Food & Drink


Visually stunning, the Golden Lion boasts the largest thatched roof in the North of England. Real fires and bespoke oak furniture provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy morning coffee with handmade chocolate truffles, a home cooked breakfast, a delicious lunch or a relaxing dinner. The finest fresh local ingredients are used to create a variety of tempting meals that are sure to please. Signature dishes include Hartlepool cod in our own beer batter with hand cut chips and a large selection of freshly prepared homemade desserts.  We have a selection of locally brewed ales and fine wines to enjoy. The Lion's Den, a beautifully decorated function room to the first floor of the building, with full disabled access, is available to hire for private parties, celebrations or corporate events.


To start try our Moules Marinier a popular favourite and delivered fresh by Hodgsons Fish Hartlepool or our homemade Chicken Liver Paté with orange and thyme accompanied by red onion marmalade. The chef highly recommends Slow Cooked Belly Pork on a bed of Black Pudding Mash with a brandy and mushroom dijon sauce or choose from a wide selection of dishes from our ever changing specials board. Follow this with traditional Sticky Toffee Pudding or our Triple Chocolate Brownie.
