Newland Avenue, north of the city centre, is great if you're looking for somewhere to eat or meet friends for a drink. There’s Roots Bar for spicy Caribbean food and cocktails, and Sleepers Café - a laid-back place to enjoy great food, wine and locally-brewed beers. It’s also home to The Hull Pie – wrapping everything in pastry since 2011. For Spanish tapas, there’s El Toro on Princes Avenue, which also has a range of independent bars and restaurants.
Get to grips with the city’s best brews on the Hull Ale Trail. It’ll take you to some of the area’s most notable pubs, including the George Hotel in the mysteriously named Land of Green Ginger at the bottom of Whitefriargate (which also happens to be where you’ll find the smallest window in England!) Refuel at the Lion and Key, on High Street, one of Hull’s oldest licenced premises and home to some traditional pub grub.
Kardomah94, on Alfred Gelder Street, has a simple but tasty menu offering salads, grilled meats and fish, and its famously unusual pizzas (duck and hoisin, anyone?) But it’s also a great venue hosting live music, performance, theatre and film screenings, often free.
Whatever your taste, you’ll find a burgeoning dining scene right on your doorstep when you consider new houses in Hull, and we’re delighted to bring new build homes to market right across the city.
If you order chips in Hull, don’t forget to ask for chip spice. This salty condiment was introduced by John Science at his restaurant Yankee Burger in 1979, and has been part of the city’s culinary landscape ever since.
