Home is a new addition to the local restaurant scene. The small, but cosy restaurant can be found on Beverly Road.

The reason this aptly-named restaurant has made this list is simple: it makes you feel at home. A warm atmosphere is created by a log fire which puts you at ease. Furthermore, the menu changes daily, offering several meat, vegetarian and vegan options.

No.6 Henry Yeast & Son

No.6 is a hidden gem which is located on Newland Avenue. This luxurious and intimate restaurant sets the mood with candles burning in wax-covered bottles and smooth background music.

The menu is also exciting boasting tasty options such as Gressingham duck breast and other items which scream “TREAT YOURSELF”. I also thoroughly recommend their Sunday lunches!

Zoo Cafe

Zoo is a quirky cafe which serves delicious, vegetarian food and can be found hiding off the beaten track on a side street, near Newland Avenue. Its charming decor and friendly staff make you feel like you’ve been transported elsewhere!

They serve a range of sandwiches, paninis and cooked meals. Their comforting vegetarian chili is a must have.

Hull is not the home for museums but also for the astonishing sights, deliberate traditional coffee shops and pubs, the old 19th century periodical buildings but to the amazing hull old town, marina and the fish trail map.

English Breakfast at Thieving Harry’s Hull Marina.

The hull old town is a hidden treasure not only a home for museums but the place to experience amazing sights to see, from the traditional coffee shops, pubs and the amazing 19th-century buildings to the fish trail map. I first experience the full English breakfast at Thieving Harry’s the nice and stunning views coffee shop in hull marina. The experience was amazing it was a nice sunny day, with the fresh wind from the hull river I ordered breakfast with cappuccino and I have amused with the taste and the environment it was spontaneous.

Me trying first time the English Breakfast it was just amazing.

The foreshore is amazing view point to sight the amazing river Humber and the stunning Humber Bridge. It is situated in front of Humber Bridge country park on the edge of River Humber it also the start of Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail. It is an excellent place to walk with nice picnic areas and adjacent car park.

Sunset at Foreshore with stunning view of Humber Bridge.

The Foreshore is about 10 minutes’ drive from the hull city center the perfect time to enjoy is the sunset. The day I visit was a bit rough but spending time and seeing the amazing sunset sight with the stunning view of Humber Bridge faded away all the worries and I felt so amazing and fresh.

I will recommend it to everyone.

Hidden Gems in Hull: Three of the Best Places to Grab a Bite

Hull has lots of amazing places to eat, with plenty of variety in price range, types of cuisines and locations. I have managed to narrow the selection down to what are, in my humble opinion, the top three places to get some good grub in Hull.

  1. Thieving Harry’s: This place is great for breakfast, brunch or lunch as it has lots of sandwich type foods that are served in massive portions so you definitely get your money’s worth. Possibly the best thing about this cafe, however, is the view of the boats in the  marinara as you eat, as it is situated in Old Town and surrounded by beautiful scenery.
  • Gino D’Acampo’s My Restaurant: This restaurant is in Kingswood, however, the quality of the food is worth the short trip. The menu is broad and offers lots of choice for the diner. This restaurant is better suited for a formal meal than a brunch or lunch as it can be quite pricey, but it is a meal you will never forget (the courgette fries are to die for)!
  • Levels: This restaurant is possibly the best place to go on Newland Av as it has delicious options for lunch and dinner plus, they serve great cocktails for reasonable prices. The portion sizes here are huge and they are more than happy for poor students to take any unfinished food with them… waste not want not.
