Lovely food, quite cheap, and you can bring your own alcohol.
The desserts are to die for!
This has to be one of the oldest veggie places in the north. Ive been going here since I found out that there is more to life than the meat and two veg/staple northern diet. I converted many a carnivore into eating 'rabbit food' here. Decor is decadent and well, how a veggie place should look.
if you are the first to book a table then you get to choose the theme, oh and did I mention it was all you can eat??
I have only visited this restuarant once and although iam not a vegetarian, this was a lovely quaint restuarant with good food and service.
Located in Hull's old town, down the side of Reveloution and near Sailmakers Arms, Ye Old Black Boy and Dirty Nellies.
The building itself is old and there are stairs to climb before you reach the restuarant. It is only small with original features such as low dark beams - it is lovely and ideal for a romantic meal.
I didnt think the restuarant was expensive, £15 for a 3 course meal with the main and desert all you can eat with a variety to choose from - another good thing about this restuarant it is not a traditional menu - they do 'theme' nights with the first to book to choose the theme - from mexican to greek to chinese.
I do like my meat but i would recommend this place looking for anything different
If you want a good night out with a group this is a place to try book early enough and you can even choose the menu theme, not being a vegetarian myself I was surprised at the quality and taste of the food. Perhaps not the type of place for a quiet candlelight dinner for two but great for a night out with workmates or similar. Take your own wine also no drinks licence.
It's Hull's only vegetarian restaurant, which is why it gets 2 stars. But beacuse of that it doesn't try. Vegan options are barely existent, and you can cook better at home. It's never open when you want it too, and the whole booking before you go is so silly. It has a monopoly in the area so it doesn't need to try and improve. There is seating for about 20 people, any more in or a large group in makes it cramped and difficult to get to the toilets.
I've found non vegetarian restaurants better for vegans than Hitchcocks!
Very expansive too!
was a couple of years ago i went here.......and even though me and my husband are meat eaters (he was not looking forward to a meat free meal)...... he and i was surprisingly pleased, the choice was very good, indian, italian, and chinese that night.. you could take your own wine and the corcage was reasonable...fun was had by all
I love this place - food is home cooked veggie (I'm not a veg but still thinks its fab) the decor is 'shabby chic' - relaxed and informal, little bit different and very comfy and inviting. It's in a darling, quaint old building on High street, in the heart of Hull's old town. First person of the night books the 'theme' which is different countries - so far I have had italian (the best) japanese, spanish, cajun and chinese. A starter is brought to your table then each table takes a turn to visit the vast buffet which has loads of diffeent homemade veggie dishes. You can visit as many times as you wish. Desserts are then served from the counter - loads of homemade puds, cakes, fruit salads and ice creams, again you can have as much as you like. Coffee and tea are then brought to the table and they come back lots of times for top-ups. Set price £15 squid a head with reductions for students and OAPs. Get there for 8 ish to start eating at about 8.30pm. V busy - book in advance and don't eat for days before you go! LOVE IT
I absolutely agree with April, that in fact this restaurant(it sickens me to refer to the establishment as this)is worse than school dinners! You have to ring a door bell to enter, we were greeted by the Chef in a filthy apron and frankly he looked like he could do with a through wash. Unfortunately we were attending a Birthday celebration so we were obliged to stay. The theme for the evening was Irish (remember this is a vegtarian place). The Starter was French baguette with garlic mushrooms as the garnish served on 4 plates for the whole table to serve 14, unfortunately I do not eat Dairy so had to pass on these (I wasn't dissapointed!). The process for the main course involved queuing up to self serve at the hotplate, given that ours was a large party it was very anti-social as one can only talk to their direct neighbours in a queue! After 15 mins of barely moving we arrived at the 'so-called' food; Soy Toad in the Hole, deep fried potatoes which imitated roasted ones, smash (we saw them walking around openly with the bags!) potato, broccolli, califlour etc. We were told we could revisit as many times as we liked but the queue was going across the whole restaurant (of-course they know customers won't bother hence the offer) however, I did revisit to get another sausage as I was so hungry. I had to collect 2 large jugs of tap water for the table. The Desserts were a selection of frozen (thawed when served, obviously) mass produced, e number filled delights of cheesecake, carrotcake, chocolate fudge and lemon tart or fruit salad (I had fruit salad - how boring!). The price was £15 per head for food only which is vastly expensive for what was on offer, in a lot of good restaurants with fresh food and Waiter Service you can get 2 courses for this or one very good one with a beautiful piece of meat and jus (apols Veggies-you understand the point). Personally, I would of rather of gone to a supermarket Café (I dislike supermarkets cafés) instead of this place as the food would be slightly better and a third of the price! This place needs to stop trade for the good of the people of Hull (I am from another city and was a visitor on this trip,this place backs-up the rumours about the lack of quality and choice on offer in Hull, MISLEADINGLY as there are some good places I hear).
