My wife and I both share a love of Hartlepool’s Historic Headland. On a grey day in January, we decided a walk around the old headland would be a good way to stretch our legs and take in the sea. It’s a strange quirky place with some beautiful buildings. We decided on fish and chips (yes again) and having been informed there was a good chipie we made our way in the general direction.
That’s when we stumbled upon an old church, recently renovated; There was a sign outside reading coffee and scones, Curious we stepped inside. The inside of the building was also beautifully restored, but instead of a church there was a stunning two-story restaurant. I read on the wall the new tea room takes its name from Mary Rowntree. Story has it she was a benefactor of the old chapel.
With breakfast still on the menu we tucked into a full English while taking in the view of the north sea.
Believe me when I say I’ve had a few good breakfasts in my time but this was without doubt the best. I think the picture tells a thousand words. Awarding winning sausage, free range eggs, well you can guess the rest. So if you’re planning a trip to Hartlepoo’s Headland-make sure you call into Mary Rowntree’s tea rooms.
