The Must-Dine Restaurants and Cafés in Hull
From Mediterranean and Asian fusion restaurants to classic dock-side cafés to enjoy a delicious brunch
Humber Fish Co.
Humber Street, Hull
This relaxed and informal seafood restaurant and bar specialises in fresh, sustainably-sourced seafood so expect the likes of Falmouth Bay lobster, East Coast crabs and fresh Cornish oysters. Their selection of wines, seasonal cocktails, ales and lager are perfect to wash your meal down with.
2–3 Humber Street, Hull HU1 1TG
Once the bustling home of the local fruit merchant, Butler Whites is now a casual, bistro-style restaurant which offers a regularly-changing, experimental menu. Dishes range from mussels and steak frites to koftas, seabass and Barnsley chop, and their special two-course lunch menu is great value.
Gusto da Gianni
26 Newland Avenue, Hull HU5 3AF
Fill up on authentic Italian food at this Hull hotspot. The menu has all the classics including bruschetta, calamari, pizza, pasta and risotto, but our choice would be the Medagliono al Gorgonzola – signature salt-aged beef fillet laced in a rich, creamy gorgonzola sauce, with a side of truffle oil and parmesan-fried potatoes of course.
73 Humber Street, Hull HU1 1TU
A fab breakfast and brunch spot with a great view of the marina. Their menu features everything from a full Harry’s breakfast to French toast, crumpets, BLTs and burgers.
2 Ferriby Road, Hessle HU13 0PG
Birdcage offers a unique menu of Mediterranean and Asian fusion dishes – think masala marinated duck kebabs with pitta bread and coriander chutney, and lemongrass chicken breast with heritage tomato salad and charred hispi cabbage. There’s a good cocktail list here too, and the interiors are seriously Instagrammable.
The Fox & Coney
52 Market Place, South Cave HU15 2AT
A modern take on a country pub, The Fox & Coney has roaring log fires for winter, a fabulous outdoor patio for summer, and serves pub classics in the restaurant and pub snacks in the bar. Nibble on a freshly cooked Scotch egg with wholegrain mustard mayo, followed by pan-fried scallops, steak and ale pie or sausage and mash.
The Dock, Queen Street, Hull HU1 1UU
This trendy dock-side eatery is the perfect place for brunch or late lunch – their selection of sweet treats which fill the counter are pretty amazing too. As well as daily specials which fill the blackboards, regular dishes include burgers, build-your-own sandwiches and a selection of grilled cheese choices – plus plenty of vegan options too.
3 The Weir, Hessle HU13 0SB
Drink, dine and dance at The Treehouse, which offers brunch and Sunday lunch, small plates and mains, as well as a varied cocktail menu with plenty of unique ‘Treehouse Creations’.
2–3 Humber Dock Street, Hull HU1 1TB
With iconic views over Hull Marina, this authentic Indian restaurant offers creative dishes which showcase fresh Yorkshire produce with ancestral and traditional cooking techniques. Our choice would be the aloo kachalu chat with tamarind and mint chutney, followed by slow-braised lamb Nalli Ghosht with pilao rice and a garlic naan.
