Eat and drink
You really don't have to spend too long in East Yorkshire to realise that you're in for a treat when it comes to wining and dining. As a largely rural, agricultural part of the world, with a long coastline associated with fishing, food and drink is important here. The number of excellent farm shops is one indicator that all is well with local, sustainable produce, and menus up and down the region are awash with East Yorkshire-sourced meat, cheese, veg and dairy products. Good country pubs are easy to find – and the Pipe and Glass at South Dalton is so good it claims a Michelin star – while in the city, Hull has undergone a transformation in recent years and can now genuinely claim to be a foodie destination. There are excellent coffee shops and all manner of thriving independent restaurants, especially in the gastro-corners of Princes Avenue and Newland Avenue. Hull does great pubs and bars too – from elegant Victorian boozers to vibrant student hang-outs.
