Reasons for trip

It was my first night back in Hull after many years and for my first dinner, I wanted one of my all time favourite meals – fish and chips. We chose “Bait Fish and Grill Restaurant”: which had good reviews even though it was a 15 to 20 minute walk from our city centre hotel.

I’d booked a table for 7.45pm, as from Tuesday to Thursday it closes at 9pm and I hate feeling that my lingering is keeping staff from their beds. However, when we arrived there were only a handful of tables taken and we had a choice of where to sit.
Although this is predominantly a fish restaurant, the “menu”: has some meat dishes.

To start with we chose Yorkshire ham hock terrine with piccalilli and rye bread as it could be easily shared – I wanted to ensure I could do justice to my F&C. The thick slab of terrine was beautiful with chunky pieces of meat and the piccalilli had been ‘painted’ on the slate in a trendy daub. It was a nice touch when an additional basket of rye bread was automatically offered.

Roy went for sticky Beef (fillet strips, udon noodles and Asian vegetables which were excellent and so well seasoned, I suggested a glass of bedside water for the night. Haddock and chips were everything I wanted and more with two fillets of haddock in a fabulously crisp batter artfully arranged on the plate with a basket of chunky chips and a dish of minted peas. The only thing I needed was a slice of white bread and butter with margarine and a cup of tea. Instead I settled for a couple of glasses of Sauvignon Blanc!

I didn’t really need pudding but the thought of ginger ice cream was tempting so I asked for one scoop and it finished my meal of perfectly.

Our bill came to £65, so not a particularly cheap night, but one that was worth every penny.
