Christmas is the time for the best in food and drink

Fancy a festive tipple?

You might be sharing a night of dancing with colleagues, enjoying a catch-up with old friends or spending a quiet night with the family. Whatever the o occasion, there’s a drink waiting for you in one of Hull’s impressive selection of pubs and bars. Along the cobbled streets of the Old Town, you’ll find pubs steeped in history – Ye Olde White Hart, The Lion and Key and The Sailmakers Arms to name but a few. Across the rest of the city centre, there are thriving, modern establishments such as Taphouse with its onsite brewery and expansive choice of beers to work
your way through. When it comes to bars, there’s plenty to choose from too. Maybe take a stroll along Princes Dock Street where you’ll find Furley & Co and Bar 82. Or head to the Fruit Market which is home to Humber Street Distillery and Tribal II.

• Are you after a new food experience in Hull city centre?
• The HoH Food Hall will open on 3rd December, just in time for
festive foodies to experience.
• The HoH Food Hall Launch will take place on 3rd and 4th December and will feature live music, local street food concessions and entertainment.

From traditional Christmas feasts to tastes from further afield, there’s plenty on the menu in Hull.

If you’re looking for a roast with all the trimmings, there are plenty of great spots dotted around the city centre, meaning you’re never too far away from a plate full of pigs in blankets. A favourite with locals, The Minerva Pub will be serving up a 3-course menu packed with homemade dishes. If you’re heading to a show at Hull New Theatre, the Kingston Theatre Hotel & Restaurant are assuring a feast fit for royalty with locally sourced produce. There is also the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill at the DoubleTree by Hilton where you can indulge in Christmas classics with a Marco twist. These are just a few of the options if you’re looking for a Christmas dinner whilst visiting Hull.

We can also offer you a twist on the classic though. Interested? Well, there are two places to check out. First up is the Pattie Shack in Atom Bar on North Church Side. Offering some mouth – watering combinations with the famous Hull Pattie, they’re known to offer a Sunday lunch version. The ideal alternative to a Christmas dinner? Quite possibly. Our second shout out goes to Looby Lou’s in Trinity Market. With a reputation for phenomenal Yorkshire pudding wraps, this could be the perfect grab-and-go option. If you’re sick of the sight of carved turkey and stuffing balls though, why not sample tastes from further afield? Around the city centre, there’s an international selection of restaurants where you’ll find something from every corner of the globe. There’s Ambiente serving up a banquet of Spanish tapas. Or you could head to Bert’s new pasta bar which also offers incredible gelato.

But if a taste of India is more your thing, check out the magnificent Tapasya on the marina. Alternatively, the Hispanist is where you’ll find dishes taken straight from Spain, Central America and South America. And there’s so much more.
