High quality food on Hartlepool's Historic Headland

At The Duke of Cleveland, we pride ourselves on locally sourced and delicious food. With a menu of hearty meals including classic favourites, nestled in the heart of Hartlepool's Historic Headland. In fact, you'll be joining us in one of The Headland's most interesting and oldest buildings.

During the 1800's, the building was used as the holiday home of The Duke of Cleveland, William Henry Vane. It's said that the building itself has no windows overlooking St Hilda's Church due to The Duke himself having a disagreement with the then curator of St Hilda's!

The Dukebox is the home of all things fancy - with worldwide bottles, themed cocktails and 30 different flavoured gins! Step in to a world of delight as you enter what once was Hartlepool Conservative Club - enjoy a tipple and platter surrounded by good friends, atmosphere and warmth.
