It’s a new month. As we think about saying goodbye to winter and welcome the blooming spring, we should get up to date with great new places to eat and drink in Hull and East Yorkshire. There are a lot of new and exciting pubs, bars and restaurants that are going to be a breath of fresh air and we’ve compiled a list of them so you don’t miss out.
Brew. Drink. Eat.
This exciting new pub has recently just opened in Hull’s Fruit Market. Adjacent to the city’s picturesque waterfront, it is the ideal setting to sit-back, relax and enjoy some drinks with your friends and family. The pub also has an in-house brewery so you will able to see their beers being made, and this also means that you can expect an ever-changing range of real ales, craft beers, larges and ciders. The pub also serves a choice of food during the day, with speciality street food each weekend.
As the weather starts to become warmer, we think that Taphouse will become a key location for you and your friends this spring, and leading into summer.
The Half Moon
At the heart of Elloughton, The Half Moon reopened its doors under new tenancy in February; dedicated to offering great food, great drink and great service in a relaxed, informal setting. The pub is offering a varied menu to suit every taste, with guest beers, and weekly quiz nights. Whether you’re a Elloughton local or not, it is definitely worth a trip out this march.
This impressive restaurant, situated on Ferriby Road in Hessle, was inspired by the owner’s love for all things Italian, and their passion for food lead to this new addition to the 1884 group. Along with locally sourced produce, speciality items are imported directly from Italy which allows them to offer authentic, seasonal Italian food and drink. Their aim is to showcase the food and wine from 20 Italian regions, from Piedmonte to Puglia, throughout the year (so it might be worth a revisit or two!).
Hessle Craft Beer and Cider Festival
It’s back for 2019! Expected to attract over 800 people, the festival celebrates a fantastic range of craft beer and cider, along with live music from local acts (ranging from rock to folk) and festival food. The third annual event is to be held in Hessle Town Hall on Friday 8th March – Saturday 9th March.
Want to taste a different cuisine? On Hull’s George Street, Tanyalak is serving authentic Thai street food and beers. The huge menu offers a wide range of different Thai dishes from curries, soups, and Phad Thai. There is also the option of take-away and a light lunch menu.
The Greek 2
You may have visited The Greek down Princes Avenue already. However, they have recently opened a second restaurant on The Weir, Hessle. Now you can have a little bit of Greek heaven on both Princes Ave and Hessle! The Greek is a great little restaurant with vibrant energy and, most importantly, fantastic authentic Greek food and beer. They also offer gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan dishes too. Along with their option to collect, there is no excuse not to try The Greek this spring!
Caspar Crepe Bar
Down Newland Avenue lies the home of the ‘Breton’ Crepe. Caspar specialise in producing delicious Crepes not just for desert but for the whole dining experience. They claim that crepes can be used in large variety of ways to produce dining experiences that are both unique and rewarding. So a trip to Caspar could be a great experience for both those with, and without a sweet-tooth.
Hang Out Bar
Staying on Newland Avenue, this new bar aims to offer great fun, amazing drinks and food. Opening just last month, Hang Out is a fantastic place to try a range of cocktails and spirits, along with beer, wine, and food. The wide selection of drinks and it’s friendly atmosphere is leaving to rave reviews online which suggests it may become a pivotal part of Newland Avenue’s nightlife.
