Back to Food & Drink


Opening it’s doors in Autumn 2011 Hartlepool College of Further Education has so much more to offer its visitors. The brand-new development represents a £53m investment in the heart of Hartlepool and the iconic building stands proud and inviting.

The Flagship Restaurant

A whole new venture and approach to dining in Hartlepool. The Flagship is a brand-new, contemporary style restaurant.

Two state of the art kitchens have been created to inspire the students and the catering team to create food to Michelin Star standards. Wherever possible the produce used will be sourced locally and ethically.

The menu, like the building and it’s surrounds, is also a breath of fresh air. Starting with a breakfast menu which includes a superb Eggs Benedict, Lunch options that include pan-fried Sea Bass, Northumbrian Lamb Shank and vegetarian options including the local favourite ‘Pan Haggerty’.

As well as fine dining we also offer a stunning ‘Afternoon Tea’ and, for the more adventurous, ‘Champagne Afternoon Tea’, To accompany this we have a superb range of over 20 specialist loose-leaf teas to choose from.

We have also created a stunning range of catering options for conferencing within the facility and can cater to suit your exact requirements in terms of taste, presentation and pricing.

One of the visual highlights of the restaurant is the stunning ‘Wine Wall’, a huge functional display created by over 900 bottles of wines from around the globe.

Chef’s recommendation

We pride ourselves on the fine range of fresh local seafood, sourced locally from sustainable stocks and prepared to make the very best taste sensation. Our deep fried Cod or Haddock is battered using the locally brewed Camerons Bitter.
