Fresh from its UK City of Culture success of 2017, Hull is seeing a major increase in its food and drink scene, with dedicated nights for visitors to enjoy local produce.
Since last year, the city has seen major regeneration and a big boost in visitors, and ‘Made in Hull’ is fast becoming an emerging theme for the city – something being embraced by food and drink producers.
Restaurants, gourmet street food, gin distilleries and microbreweries have joined an already well-established Ale Trail taking in historic pubs, particularly in the Medieval and picturesque Old Town.
Food nights in the city
Groups visiting the city might like to tie their trip into Hull’s Street Food Nights, which take place on one Thursday of every month. Lasting from 4pm to 9pm, upcoming Street Food Nights will be on 7th June, 12th July, 2nd August and 6th September.
Offering a showcase for the city’s rapidly growing local food scene, the award-winning Street Food Nights, funded and organised by HullBID, are back for 2018, with food, drink and music combining in a night-time street festival featuring a vast collection of stalls.
Around 40 local food vendors and a host of bars turn Zebedee’s Yard and Trinity Market in Hull into a night time piazza with deckchairs, bistro tables and chairs, all decorated with strings of lights.
With free entry, there is plenty of entertainment, too, ranging from a DJ and live music to street artists, while local bars on Princes Dock Street and the Old Town also serve hot food, alcoholic and soft drinks during the Food Nights.
Don’t miss exploring the narrow rooms and cobbled corridors in the historic pubs of Hull Old Town, where many of the city’s Ale Trail hostelries can be found, include Ye Olde Black Boy, which dates back to 1729.
