1884 Dock Street Kitchen Hull

Finding good places to eat in Hull can be tricky, though after its UK City of Culture year, things are beginning to look up.  The 1884  dockside warehouse has long been the most reliable, despite the décor best described as ‘dictator chic’`: dark panelling, wing chairs, purple poufs, chandeliers, a lot of brass and a back-lit cupboard with show-off bottles of £500+ champagne.

Never mind, the three course £25 midweek menu is great value and brought us some excellent beetroot cured salmon and some good braised lamb shoulder though they’d rather overdone the apricot sauce. The a la carte offers the likes of wood pigeon , sea trout  and monkfish with crab samosa with cheesecake, baked Alaska and pistachio sponge to finish. With all those bottles around there place there is a substantial wine list and plenty by the glass.

Across the Marina is the 1884 Wine and Tapas, a lively bar serving as you might expect, small plates of Spanish tapas. It was busy, noisy and enormous fun on our visit. Be sure to book at weekends.
