The Vestry Cafe

Tucked away inside Hartlepool’s Art Gallery, you will find a charming café ran by Catcote Academy and Catcote Futures that is a training facility providing work experience for the students. You can relax, admire the art and enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake within the idyllic surroundings of the Gallery. The Vestry serves a range of light meals such as homemade soups, jacket potatoes and a variety of sandwiches. Or if you’ve got a sweet tooth try their decadent freshly baked scones, cakes and cookies.

The café specialises in breakfasts, light lunches and also offers a delicious range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.

 The Vestry is proudly an official Fair Trade café, meaning our supply of teas, coffees and food were fairly sourced and paid for.

We are open from 10am to 4pm (food is served up until 3pm) and accept card payment.

Private functions can be catered for upon request, for all enquiries please call 01429 523402.
