An offshoot of the critically-acclaimed 1884 Dock Street Kitchen, a British restaurant on the other side of Humber Dock Marina, 1884 Wine & Tapas Bar is just as its name suggests, a stylish venue overlooking the Hull’s marina from its perch up in the Freedom Quay neighbourhood along Wellington Street West, with seating inside or al fresco. It’s a great spot to soak up the rays, when the weather obliges, and be whisked away to the Mediterranean, a place that head chef Dan Poole’s selection of Spanish tapas and small plates (not to mention the well-stocked cellar) effortlessly evokes.
Really good food and venue staff were friendly the place is fine out really well and is quite small do the service feels a lot more attentive but not over bearing
Went to 1884 with my partner and we both opted for the chefs green card. For £30pp you can sample the entire menu. This is such good value for money and gives you the opportunity to try out dishes you wouldn't necessary order. The whole menu was amazing and I would recommend the green card to anyone who goes.
The whole experience was great. Lovely wine and food, especially the pigeon dish. We had 6 dishes between us and this was just enough. The warm bread and olives where a great starter. Will definitely go again.
Located in the heart of Hull’s festival quarter, in the Freedom Quay development along Wellington Street West, 1884 Wine & Tapas Bar is the ideal venue for diners looking for a bite to eat and a glass of something fine and continental, quiet business lunches, or lavish private dining events or parties. Open from noon until late every day of the week, with the kitchen turning out its refined Spanish tapas in two sittings (noon until 2pm and 5pm until 9pm) from Monday to Thursday, diners can choose to sit inside 1884’s stylish wine bar or outside, with gorgeous views out over Hull Marina.
1884 Wine & Tapas Bar’s food is set to stun every bit as much as its bigger brother, 1884 Dock Street Kitchen, a restaurant visible across the water that serves predominantly British cuisine. First you’ll want to choose your weapon from 1884’s extensive wine list, with a generous number available by the glass plus an impressive selection by the bottle. Fine Spanish sherries are the perfect match with tapas, with the three 30-year-old vintages from Jerez topping the list. Varietals from across the spectrum are covered here and carefully annotated, ensuring there’s a good drop for every palate and a perfect pairing for every dish. Highlights from this Hull Marina tapas bar’s menu include the gambas tequila, large prawns in a tequila batter, the hipogloso, halibut with saffron and roasted peppers, and the vegetarian asparagus with almonds, garlic and lemon. Bigger portions are on offer too, with skewers of chicken, chorizo, lamb and monkfish meeting heftier shared dishes like chicken and chorizo or seafood paella and a herbed and spiced Spanish fillet of beef. There’s no doubt that this wine and tapas bar is set to strengthen 1884’s reputation in Hull and across the UK.
