There are lots of opportunities to eat, drink and be merry in Hull city centre and beyond. With its serving of riverside, Old Town and modern development locations, there's always the perfect setting to suit your mood. If you're after cosmopolitan cafés, the centre of Hull is alive with trendy coffee and cocktail bars, whilst the ever-popular Avenues is the place to go for award-winning independents.

They complement each other with their contrasting dining styles and ever-changing menus; 1884 Dock Street Kitchen winning accolades as it leans towards a formal approach and 1884 Wine & Tapas Bar also hugely popular for its more laid-back Mediterranean mood.
There's nothing quite like the atmosphere of supping a pint of traditional ale in the Old Town environment. Ye Olde Black Boy is allegedly the oldest pub in Hull and certainly has a cosy atmosphere - as well as a spooky one with its ghostly legend. And on a warm summer's evening imagine discovering the Sailmakers Arms with its charming courtyard, tucked away down a cobbled street. And there are plenty more hidden treasures like these.
The beauty of eating out in Hull is that it's always accompanied by a fantastic view. Fresh fish and chips beside the river is always on the menu, or maybe you'd prefer a tasty pizza by the marina. But for something extra special, head out to Artisan restaurant in Hessle. This is one of the highest guide-rated restaurants in Yorkshire and has the most impressive views of the Humber Bridge (stunningly lit up at night).
