Hull, or Kingston upon Hull, is a port city in East Yorkshire, England. Where the River Hull meets the Humber Estuary. After winning the UK City of Culture in 2017 and getting international recognition after a piece of Banksy street art appeared overnight, the investment in the City, along with the emergence of a heap of independent restaurants and bars and Hull is a great place to drink, dine and soak up the atmosphere. Humber street is packed with independent businesses and cafes and is an absolute delight.
Lots of the venues in the town are reliant on takeaway trade now more than ever and so if you can show your support, it will ensure that there’s still a growing and diverse number of places to spend a night out when we are back to normal-ish.
Please remember that if you order through a delivery app they take a proportion of the profit from the restaurant, so it’s always worth calling them direct as so many of the options are offering superbly socially distanced collection facilities and that way you’ll have the knowledge that all your pounds are going into Blackpool’s bottom line.
