The fully licenced restaurant continues to achieve Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence status, thanks to numerous outstanding views. All of our food is freshly produced on-site using locally sourced ingredients. 

Frances Atkins, one of just six female Michelin starred chefs in the UK, is working in collaboration with Middlesbrough College with the aim of creating a Centre of Culinary Excellence. The co-owner of The Yorke Arms near Harrogate is working with staff and students to create a new menu choice for The Waterside Brasserie and increase the standards on offer to the public. 

We welcome you for breakfast, morning coffee, lunches and dinners and are also available for your  informal breakfast meetings to exclusive dining in  our Brasserie for 40 guests or more. Menus requirements can be discussed on an individual basis with our team of qualified staff. Our menu changes every term, so there’s always something new to tempt your taste buds.

We have recently gone through some changes regarding car parking and entry to Middlesbrough College. We thank you for your advanced cooperation in this, and have taken these measures to improve security within the college in light of recent activities throughout the country.

Parking before 5.00pm

Guests can pre-reserve car parking spaces in the clock tower carpark at the time of booking where they will be issued a bay number to park in. Access will be gained via the clock tower entrance where they will be issued a day pass from the security desk.
Any guests that have not pre-reserved spaces or who simply wish to turn up on the day will need to park in the town or STEM Centre car parks. These guests can collect a car parking permit and college day pass from the town centre reception on arrival. 
Guests are still free to park in any college car park providing they display one of the scratch off parking permits, these can be issued from ourselves or the facilities management desk.
Parking after 5.00pm 
There are no parking restrictions after this time, guests can park in any of the college car parks.

If you have any concerns at this stage, please do not hesitate to ring or email the Waterside Brasserie team.
