Best places to eat in Hull

The port city of Kingston-up-Hull, also known as Hull, lies on the north banks of the Humber in East Yorkshire. With heaps of fascinating history, beautiful museums and stunning natural scenery on its doorstep, the city is a destination of choice among many. It was awarded the ‘Capital of Culture’ title in 2017 thanks to its amenities and stellar culinary scene. Whether you’re travelling from neighbouring Leeds, York or Sheffield, we’ve shortlisted a few of the best places for a foodie experience to remember.


Found in Hull’s Marina, a stone’s throw from the Albert Dock, Ambiente is a must if you love tapas. This former warehouse has been repurposed to create a cosy yet elegant ambience where Spanish flavours are at the core. With imaginative tapas and a great selection of wines and sherries, this restaurant is suitable for an informal lunch or a special occasion.

Two Rivers

Located in one of the city’s most popular attractions, The Deep, a meal at Two Rivers is an experience like no other. You’ll be able to taste exquisite local food with exotic fish swimming past you. East Yorkshire delicacies are paired with Mediterranean ingredients that create unique combinations. Be sure to try the Yorkshire fettle cheese and the Grimsby smoked cod loin.

The Hull Pie

As the name suggests, this restaurant is a haven for pie-lovers. Its owner, Matt, intended to set up a shop after a BBQ pork pie he made for friends back in Canada had great success. Today, he owns three outlets scattered across the city, serving pies filled with the unimaginable – from caramelised beer and brisket to Jamaican chicken.

Bar 82

Sitting in Hull’s beating heart, Bar 82 combines sophisticated food with the timeless, rustic pub ambience. Its modern yet simple interior sets the scene for great local food and hand-crafted ales. Here you can try Moroccan chicken and chickpea soup, smoked salmon pate and Yorkshire pudding, and the legendary 82 burger.

Humber Fish Co

Found next door to Hull Art Gallery and The Deep, Humber Fish Co is the go-to place for seafood lovers. This welcoming and stylish restaurant provides a laid-back environment and locally-sourced dishes, including fresh lobsters, oysters and salmon.

Le Crêpier Papin

Lying on the western outskirts of Hull city centre, le Crêpier Papin serves French food at its finest. Cosy and intimate, this restaurant offers delicious sweet and savoury pancakes, various types of crêpes and fillings, along with salads, burgers and other tasty nibbles.

Pipe and Glass

A little further afield from Hull city centre, this Michelin-starred restaurant proposes innovative interpretations of British classics, such as the 30-day-aged steak with ox tongue fritter, hollandaise and rump of Yorkshire lamb with barley and broad bean risotto.

Lucca Restaurant & Lounge

Who doesn’t like a taste of authentic Italian food? At the Lucca Restaurant & Bar you can relax in the upstairs bar before enjoying gourmet dishes such as pancetta wrapped scallops, roast vegetable risotto and black squid ink tagliatelle.
