Further Information

1884 Dock Street Kitchen’s central a la carte offering has come to be regarded among food critics and discerning diners as a definitive demonstration of the subtlety and scope of British cuisine. Assuredly seasonal, at the time of writing 1884 was winding down its summer sampler, with traditionally garnished oysters heading up a long list of dishes prepared from carefully selected and largely locally-sourced ingredients. The same seasonality shines forth in this Hull Marina dining destination’s lunch menu, with starters such as honey and mustard ham hock terrine making way for main courses like a blowtorched fillet of mackerel with lemon and paprika sauteed potatoes, or the Charles Ashbridge Gloucester Old Spot pork with pancetta, braised gems and anchovies with a simple Caesar dressing and crisp rye bread. At 1884, the focus on ingredients is sharp, even when you turn to the riches of the pudding and dessert menu.

1884 Dock Street Kitchen’s premises down along Humber Dock Street has become a destination for those looking for some old British charm not only in terms of hearty, rustic lunches and dinner. Here, there’s enough going on in the kitchen to warrant a separate menu for dessert and puddings, appended by a great selection of ports, coffee, teas and infusions – perfect for afternoon tea, high tea, or any other such excuse blue-blooded British gourmets will find in order to crack out the crockery. Here, a cherry and almond frangipane tart with kirsch ice cream rubs sweet shoulders with a traditional buttermilk pudding complete with a matcha green tea meringue, Gariguette strawberries and pistachio, and the Michel Cluizel dark chocolate fondant sits comfortably alongside a trolley of the day’s premium cheeses, ideal with a glass of Quinta do Crasto vintage port. Perhaps the best way to enjoy 1884 Dock Street Kitchen’s supreme understanding of restrained and refined dining is to book a table at this gorgeously appointed Hull Marina restaurant for the two- or three-course market menu, with option to match each dish with a glass of wine from the well-stocked cellar.

The ambiance is both welcoming, bustling but also intimate. The staff make you feel they are just there for you and every visit is special. Our Sunday lunch was a lovely affair, we had just taken my son and his fiance to The Deep and were relaxed and happy. The meal was absolutely wonderful - varied, Yorkshire, interesting and beautifully cooked and served. We all had different meals and they were all great. For a change I had cheese for dessert - what a selection, it was hard to choose but delicious when I did. I have eaten at 1884 Dock Street Kitchen quite a few times and have never been disappointed. My favourite was the chocolate and violet mousse I had last time. Well worth a visit, one of the best restaurants and I had visited quite a few!

Simply, I have eaten at most restaurants in Hull over the past years and no one beats 1884 Dock Street Kitchen. The food is outstanding, full of complimentary flavours and a pleasure for my taste buds. All the fish dishes myself and my partner have tried are nothing short of true perfection and presentation is always visually amazing. The restaurant is light, airy, beautifully designed, the atmosphere is always really welcoming and the staff are true professionals. This restaurant is genuine Michelin star quality and we are looking forward to seeing the new menu in March 2016. 10 out of 10 in every way and we are very very happy customers.

Service was excellent. We arrived early and asked if we wanted to take a seat in the bar area or go straight through to the table, we prompted for a predrink before the meal. The wine menu arrived along with the a la carte and market menu. The wine menu was extensive and separated into white, red and rose wine by region. We opted for a bottle of 2013 Chateauneuf du pape which tasted incredible. As alwasy, a pre-meal amuse bouche of watercress and potato soup came along with homemade ale bread. For starter my partner ordered orange and dill cured salmon, and i had Goat's chesse. Both plates were immaculately presented and tasted divine. After polishing off the first bottle of red wine, we prompted for a second in the form of a Quinto de Castro Duoro from Portugal which was rich in flavour yet not too strong to overwhelm the food. For main course i chose the spring vegetable, which contained rosti, charred leeks, and other season vegetables, my partnetr ordered the sea trout, both of which again tasted very nice and were presented very well. A cofee and a liquer coffee finished off what was a very enjoyable meal. Would definitely return. Total price £185.00

1884 was always a place we have wanted to visit but for one reason or another we kept putting it off. Our table was ordered for 6 so we arrived 10 minutes early and found the place still shut and closed. We worried we had got the wrong place but no, literally two minutes to 6 the lights came on and the barriers opened to expose 1884. We was placed at a booth which was nice, we gave our orders and was brought and complimentary appetiser. For starters I had the Mozzarella and my husband had the pigeon. Mains where the Hake with Lemon Mash for myself and my husband had Chicken with minted peas. Dessert we opted for the Lemon & black pepper Meringue and my husband had the White chocolate dessert. Over all we both agreed our experience was wonderful. Staff was attentive but not too in your face. After our meal staff left me and my husband to just chat while we had our after dinner coffee's. We didn't feel like we was being rushed out to make way for another cover. It's not very often my husband suggests we go somewhere twice but he already mentioned coming back.

Have to say we were very impressed with 1884 Dock Street Kitchen . From entering, the staff were very welcoming and friendly . The service was excellent and the food , well all we can say is compliments to the chef. Well cooked ,tasted delicious and well presented. Also , from the restaurant to the bar and the toilets was spotlessly clean .Background music was great too as you could still hear yourself talking without it being too loud , and the old film of Laurel and Hardy was nice to see too. Very well done and would highly recommend.

The building was beautiful and the service was great. We had the market menu which I thought was a good price given the care and thought given to the food and the quality of the ingredients. I think water on the table is better than having your water glass topped up, that extra attention feels unnecessary overkill. The amuse bouche of salmon were fabulous and the food in general had some nice and clever and very tasty things in it. The night we went the cheese/mint/pea starter was good and the pig cheek too. The main course, deconstructed tart, was clever and tasted good, but the meat dish that night was not so good and needed a different knife given the cut of meat. The pudding, treacle tart, was lovely, but enormous given the size of other portions. If I'm being really picky I'd say the balance of dishes was sometimes a little bit sweet and some of the subtler flavours got lost in that. We really enjoyed our meal and the experience of eating in a lovely location. It may just be my individual likes, but I like a bit less show in the fanciness of the presentation and deliberate luxury, and a bit more confidence in the food being well cooked and good ingredients. All around us there were people enjoying special occasions and fancy wines, so the sense of luxury may be an important part of the way the restaurant presents itself, but I went for the food and enjoyed it.

The wine waiter that initially greeted us was charming, lovely and seemed very knowledgable about his wines. We were then left with a waitress who did not smile during the entire service. Granted, she may have been having a bad day, if so, I do apologise for what may seem like a critical review. But it really brought down the mood of the meal as everytime she spoke to us, the atmosphere just changed. Each of the people at our party commented and agreed. The amuse bouche was rather dry and flavourless, and left a sticky residue in our mouths. The bread and butter entree was plain. Usually the bread is my father's favourite part of any meal, however it was flavourless, and tasted almost stale. The starters were actually quite nice, however it was difficult to tell what was on the plate with the venison starter, as all the ingredients seemed to blend into one. However the rabbit terrine, and oysters were rather lovely! The onion sauce for the oysters was a bit too overpowering, and could have done with a lot less onion in it. But the lemon and Tabasco worked a treat! The rabbit terrine was pleasant overall as the accompaniments were delightful! However the terrine itself could have been blended a little better as it had the texture of tinned tuna. Flavour was nice though! The mains were average, nothing too special. The mango purée did not really work with the sea bass as it was almost congealed. And the 'seasonal vegetables for the table' consisting of a tiny tin of about 7 vegetables was not really satisfying. However, the saviour of the meal was the 5 Macarons as a dessert! They were delightful. Each of them were remarkably flavoursome and tasted exactly how they were supposed to!! Considering the previous Tripadvisor reviews, we expected amazing things from this restaurant, and we were left with a relatively average meal!

I went for dinner as the doors opened and was first one in but I was made very welcome and really looked after. Beautifully decorated inside and a wonderful spot by the dock. Market menu was very good value for money and the food was good. My hake and vegetables were cooked beautifully. Enjoyed the lemon meringue pie; the pastry was so thin and crisp. Not 100% sure about the green tea ice cream - couldn't taste much against the strong lemon flavour. A bonus glass of Prosecco was the cherry on top of the cake. Not huge portions which was good for me but don't go ravenous. Would have been nice to be offered a gluten free alternative to the bread which looked lovely but I can't eat. I didn't ask if they had an alternative so they may have one and just didn't think to offer it. Would go again.

Absolutely brilliant! Could not fault them one bit! From the warm welcome into the place, to remembering my wife's dietary requirements- they came to us after we were sat down and worked out alternatives/amendments to the menu for her and even providing her with a different canope with no onions, chives or garlic involved as she is breastfeeding and our baby suffers from them. They were wonderfully understanding and worked around us. The food was outstanding- the starter was amazing, sirloin was the best I've ever had and on top of that, they kept a fine pint of Black Sheep in draft. If I hear anyone looking for somewhere special to eat, I'll not just recommend DSK, I'll give them a piggyback there!!! Thank you DSK for an outstanding evening!!

Good food, and an accurate menu - that's to say, its honest and tells you what you're getting. I had the fixed price lunch menu and added oysters. All very good. The breads were freshly made. The interior is well done and if you get seats with views of the water, even better. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good - just enough for a hungry diner, and you're not left feeling stuffed. My one observation for improvement - I had to ask for table water, and it tasted funny - could have been chilled in the fridge for too long. There is no substitute for just a good jug of fresh tap water, with a decent wedge of lemon in it. Yes, i know they want to sell me expensive water, but I am just not buying it, so make me a happy diner, and just give me some tap water!

A frequent visitor before I turned vegan, I wasn't sure about how they cope with such a potentially awkward dietary request, so I avoided going for a while. I shouldn't have. After booking online and mentioning I was vegan, my friend and restaurant manager, James had already spoken to the chefs who came up with two lovely sounding starters and two mains, I opted for garden salad to start and roasted butternut squash for main, both were beautifully looking dishes which tasted as good as they looked. A sign of a good restaurant can be how they deal with special requests and I can't fault 1884 on this or indeed any of the other numerous visits I've made there. Perfect.

Beautiful food, lovely atmosphere, delicious wine. 1884 Dock Street Kitchen, once again, delivered an exceptional dining experience. We went for our anniversary and it made our day truly spectacular. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable - they can confidently recommend wine to accompany food and suggest the perfect gin and tonic from the long list of options.

This is the third time I have been to 1884 and the service is normally incredible and last night it was awful. We went for the set menu, three courses with a glass of fizz for £25.00 each. I have had this everytime and its brilliant. Last night we were shown to our table and we placed our order. I was driving but my partner ordered the matching wine. Our bread arrived, still no drinks. Then our soup came for starters. A waitress came over with two glasses of wine, I advised that we had only ordered one and mentioned that we had still not had our fizz. She was apologetic and brought it over for us. Food was perfect as normal, my partner felt the main was very salty but it was nice. The guy who served us then went on to barge in to my chair and didnt offer a murmer of apology. When we got the bill we were reluctant to leave a tip due to the poor service, we are normally really good tippers. As we were leaving the man who served us was counting our money into the till and looked mad, when we walked out we didnt even get a thank you or anyhting. Immensly dissapointing service to what we are used to at 1884!

The restaurant has a great ambiance and is in a great location. The food was excellently prepared and served. The staff were knowledgeable and recommended a very nice wine to compliment the meal and took the time to provide us with additional details so we could purchase some at a later date, for home consumption. Even though we were late arriving, due to an issue with the Taxi, we wee still asked if we would like a drink at the bar before being seated. My steak was cooked just as I like it and the sweet and Irish coffee finished off the meal perfectly. All in all a fantastic experience.

A warm welcome greeted us on arrival, which was a good start to our lunch, which celebrated the end of a busy term at The Deep for our in-house teaching team. The food choice was a tad limited but nobody in our group of 9 struggled to find something to tempt them. The bar and restaurant were quiet when we first arrived but as the afternoon progressed it got quite busy which created a better atmosphere for our lunch. Staff were attentive though towards the end of the meal we couldn't find anyone to give us our bill as they'd become short staffed as the place filled up. As a city centre lunchtime venue 1884 is the best. Its central, its classy and at lunchtime it offers value for money.

It was worth negotiating the docklands building works to enjoy an excellent lunch at 1884 Dock Street Kitchen. The food was delicious, the staff attentive and cheerful and the decor interesting. The prices were relatively high but not exceptionally expensive for the quality of the menu. Definitely worth a visit, we will be back.

Took my husband here for his birthday lunch. We chose the set menu three course meal which was brilliant value for 25 including a glass of prosecco! We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon the restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food was amazing, well presented and good sized portions. The waiting staff were friendly and approachable. They even brought my husband out some cheesecake pieces and chocolates on a plate which they had written happy birthday on in chocolate when they discovered why we were eating there. We definitely plan to eat there again soon, couldn't fault it!!

Went for a family celebration and had the Sunday lunch menu, which was a set menu but had plenty of choice and was good value. The food was tasty and plentiful, service was excellent, we didn't have to wait long but we didn't feel rushed, a very leisurely experience which is what Sunday should be about. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we would book again. The only difficulty we had was in parking nearby, but the busy Humber Street Market was on that day and spaces were in short supply. I would visit on a non Market day, and be sure to book in advance!

We had a great experience at the restaurant.The food and service was a of a very high standard.The staff took their time to explain any queries on the menu and the wine waiter paid particular care in explaining that even screw topped wines can be "corked"-not that this was an issue with the wine we ordered-he was simply helping with a query we had amongst ourselves. We sat in the historic building's window overlooking the glamorous yachts on the marina on a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon-enjoying a beautiful meal and relaxed ambience-what more could you ask for.

My wife and I both enjoyed our visit to 1884 for an excellent lunch from the set menu. Attentive staff (there but not pushy), served beautifully cooked food. Lovely fresh baked bread served whilst our starters of mussels in cream & white wine and chicken & bacon terrine were being cooked. Main courses were waygu beef casserole with rosemary dumplings and fig & chestnut risotto, both equally delicious, all washed down with a lovely red. Unfortunately we were too full to have desserts but did have coffee and liqueurs. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

Booked this restaurant for our 19th Wedding Anniversary. The venue itself is was immaculate. We were greeted at the door and taken to a seat in the bar to order a drink and look at the menus. The food and wine was ordered and just before it was ready we were taken to our table, the wine waiting on the table for us. Freshly baked bread was brought to the table followed by small canopes. The main course was excellent and the staff were fantastic and very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Great food and service in traditional, but elegant surroundings. We went for lunch and had the celeriac soup and mackerel to start (both very good) with the 'posh' fish pie and the taste of autumn as our mains (both were good, but we particularly enjoyed the latter, which was like vegetarian Xmas on a plate). We finished with coffees and an orange and cinnamon bread/butter pudding between us (good, but the weakest course). Together with a 175ml glass of wine, a beer and a small bottle of water this was all less than £70 for the 2 of us, which we thought very good value for what is arguably Hull's best restaurant.

I enjoyed my evening At 1884 , I have coeliac disease and was catered for very well, I felt confident they knew what they were doing, from bringing gluten free bread to the table to a special appetiser . Wine was good and cold, food presented well and staff curtious. Definitely Hulls best restaraunt.. Not the cheapest of evenings £150 for two and they added some drinks to the bill twice, luckily we checked, but it niggles me... I'd recommend it to anyone for a special night..l you can cut costs down, I had a glass of champagne and oysters, we had 1 and half bottles of wine and liqueur coffees..

This is not my first visit to 1884 so I knew I was going to have a good experience. As always the greatest attention is made by all members of staff to the diners and I love the fact they explain to you exactly what it is you are eating and what ingredients are used. The environment is better than ever with dining now in the bar which I enjoyed more than in the main restaurant as it felt more relaxed. This is one of the best eating establishments in the city.

Visited 1884 for a business dinner service was good we are off the al acarte menu. We were a group of five so we all order various starters. The main menu was varied at just right for the number of main dishes available so you knew it would be cooked fresh. I had a sirloin steak med-rare I was a little disappointed as it was a little undercooked on the outside and this led to it being fairly rare on the inside, I usually get it well seared on the outside and medium rare in the middle. As I was with customers I didn't wish to make an issue. We all had desserts and enjoyed them very much. Generally always good but on this occasion my main meal was disappointing however all my customers enjoyed their food.

One of our favourite restaurants in Hull. We went for lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday. Lovely welcome, relaxed pre lunch drinks in the bar whilst selecting from the menu. The lunch menu is excellent value and provides a good selection to choose from. Tom had the pork chop with cobnuts and I had the plaice with crab mousse - both delicious. We had desserts white chocolate bread and butter pudding and raspberry frangipan absolutely scrumptious! The coffee here is always superb. Never been disappointed with a meal here.

We came to 1884 for a post-Christmas get together. A few had been before, but this was the first visit for a couple of us. All I can really say is that everything was lovely; from the reception area to the main dining room. All our meals were delicious with clean plated all round for all three courses! We also found all the serving staff to be attentive, swift and very friendly and pleasant. Overall, a fantastic all round experience which we'd all like to have again soon!

Wonderful, attentive staff, good service, lovely friendly atmosphere and great food. Only critisism being that there was no gin menu like there has been on previous occasions. So when asked what kind of gin I would like with my tonic and wanting something different from my usual Bombay Sapphire, and not wanting to list of gins reeled off to me by the waitress my only response was you choose. Her choice or the barman's choice was to be fair spot on and I had a 2nd. However, a menu to peruse would have been great...although it may have ended up in me having several more.

My Fiance and I booked at 1884 on Saturday 22nd of October. On arrival we were escorted to our table where our coats were taken by the concierge. The service from then on just got better and better. As for the meal from the starters to the final dessert was absolutely Michelin star quality. The ambience, food and service made this one of the best evenings my fiance and I have ever experienced. We will be back and will recomend to all we know Brian & Rita

We had a wonderful meal at Dock Street Kitchen - the service was first class, the food was delicious and the wine selection along with the cheese board was extensive - I would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to anyone - 5 star. I have been a member of the Food & Wine society for many years and I will certainly be advising that the Dock Street Kitchen appear on our "short list" for proving a fantastic culinary delight. A return visit is certainly highly recommended.

This is not the first time we have been to 1884, but the experience does not change. The building itself is impressive and the conversion elegantly done. The service is impeccable, and the food really excellent. The quality of the ingredients is high, they are cooked very well and the treatment of the food is imaginative, appealing to the eye as well as the taste. We have only ever had the set menu, which is really all you need. The a la Carte seems very expensive.

Really lovely ambience and attentive waiters. Food was fab although the sticky toffee pudding a bit too rich- would be better with a good vanilla ice cream. The set menu is an absolute bargain and came with a complimentary glass of Prossecco. I was worried that portion sizes would be a problem as per previous reviews but not the case. A really good evening and will come back. PS Only disappointment of the night was dinging someone's bumper in the car park on way home :(

Top quality food and beautifully presented, served by friendly and attentive staff. At no time did we feel rushed and we enjoyed a three hour leisurely celebration meal for my husbands birthday. We were a party of six, four of whom had travelled over a hundred miles to join us and who declared it was well worth the journey - even though they had to make the return journey home after the meal..The whole dining experience was special and we look forward to another such evening.

Good food, waitress service attentive. When paying the Bill the waitress was unsure of how to add the gratitude payment onto my electronic bill. The waitress asked a senior member of staff for assistance, however his attitude towards her waitress was unprofessional and he made her feel inadequate! This was witnessed by myself and I made a comment to the waitress to make her feel more comfortable after the other member of staff ( male) returned to his duties. Comments: Please ensure the OVERALL experience is important even as the customer is leaving! Courtesy to colleagues should not be limited to customers!

The service is excellent, as is the quality and presentation of the food. It was delicious. I have visited the restaurant a dozen times or so over the past few years, whenever I am in Hull on business and I have never been disappointed. I am usually dining by myself and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The fish in particular is always incredibly fresh and perfectly cooked. Would recommend to anyone. The set menu is very good value for what you get.

Dissapointing. Last visit was very good. This time not so. Ordered a bottle of wine, was brought a different one, sent it back. They returned it saying the one ordered was out of stock. Why not say this in the first place. Starters very good. Main course I ordered was pidgeon, they brought fish, sent it back. Waitress returned saying she had pressed the wrong button gave a glass of champagne each took away my wifes correct meal and said the right order would arrive in ten minutes. It took longer. The pidgeon that was served was rare, under done for my taste. That second breast was over done on the bottom and almost raw on the top. My wife's meal was perfect.

We had a fantastic meal for my Mother-in-laws 70th birthday, the food was excellent and the staff extremely friendly and helpful, there was a slight mistake with one of our starters which we didn't even notice and we were given a full round of drinks on the house which included wine, and there were seven of us in our party. All of our party fully enjoyed the meal and the dining experience and will definitely be returning to the restaurant again.

Beautiful dining area, the food was lovely (venison for me, partridge Wellington for my other half), melt in the mouth meat. We ordered the South African Cabernet Sauvignon which was delicious. Highlight of the meal were our puddings, the toffee apple Mille feuille was very special and the dark chocolate delice combined with coffee ice cream was a perfect duo. Haven't quite given it the full five as my partner was a little disappointed with his double espresso which he said 'lacked punch'. But overall a great meal and we will be going back.

A pleasant cadre with attentive but not obtrusive service. The cuisine was , on the whole very good. I questioned the quality of the oysters, having already asked if they were good., They were milky and just not fresh, but had no response from my remark after they had been served , so deduct a "point " for that lack of care. Overall a good experience but highly over-priced which docks another point. They cannot justify that level even if it is next to the marina. More used to dining in France, this was not a good comparison. Many locals will find the portion control rather mean. I will probably not be returning as a result. Chris

Overall the experience was lovely. We were looked after really well as we arrived and as we were about to leave. However during the dining time the service could be improved by having more staff looking after less people. This is because at times it seemed that the staff was rushing around and is not having much time to look after customers. The food was great and the chocolate sweets that We had as desserts were incredibly good! Definitely sending best compliments to the chef. Would go back again hopefully to see improvements

The venue is fantastic and the service from the staff is really second to none unfortunately me and my partner were disappointed with the food. Lobster has to be one of my favourite things to eat and have tried this as a starter in many restaurants but i was very unimpressed with the dish served here also the vegetables that accompanied our main meal were very undercooked. On the plus side we did enjoy the oysters with our starter and as I said previous the staff are fantastic and the venue lovely. I have no issue spending a lot of money on a meal/dining experience but on this occasion I really do feel that the prices charged could not be justified for the quality of the meal/dining experience that we received. Me and my partner really did find this such a shame as we had high hopes after reading some of the reviews online.

Have been here 4 times now, the venue is very nice and the staff excellent. However, the food is very minimal unless you are having a steak. My starter was smoked haddock served with mussels and clams, it only just covered the bottom of the dish. The main course I chose which was a bit different was mutton, there was two tiny pieces of meat which was under cooked but I know that is how chefs like to serve meat so went with it, the potato was a spoonful, turned over and spread on the plate. I am not a massive eater by any means, but I was actually hungry when I left. My partner had rabbit for a starter and we thought it had jumped off the plate as nothing on the plate resembled rabbit. It is a special restaurant with fancy food and very artistic but this time very disappointed. .

This was a truly amazing experience ! The staff were so delightful and helpful and the ambience just superb. And the food was DIVINE ! 😃😃😃😃 - worth driving 200 miles from Cheltenham and then some! My Angus steak just melted and the honeycomb with my pear tarte was to die for. The whole experience for my wife and me (my 70th birthday) was wonderful. I'm not waiting another 70 years before I return !

I have dined at 1884 Dock Street Kitchen before and what draws me back is the standard of attention to making this a pleasant experience. Attentive staff who engage the customer, and you aren't rushed to leave!

The food and the ambience was great as always when I visit 1884, but I did feel that the service was a little cool. My colleague also commented on this. I'm not sure we got a smile out of the waitress all evening. Having said this, service has always been very welcoming in the past so perhaps she was just having an off-night. I would certainly recommend 1884 to anyone visiting Hull. The market menu in particular is exceptional for the quailty of food that you are served.
