The Beverley Arms Hotel

In the heart of Beverley, opposite St. Mary’s church, is the Beverley Arms Hotel. The perfect place for a fry-up to start the day before shopping or exploring Beverley. The Beverley Arms has a long history (since 1794) and has recently been refurbished to a fabulous standard with several snug seating areas, a restaurant and a heated, covered patio for outdoor dining.

From American-style pancakes to eggs Benedict and the traditional English Fry-up, there’ll surely be something to tempt your tastebuds. Your chosen breakfast, combined with good coffee, will last you well beyond lunch! Brunch is served 10.00-11.45 am, and depending on the day of your visit, you may want to book to avoid disappointment.

Thieving Harry’s

With beautiful views over Hull Marina in Hull, Thieving Harry’s makes a mean trade in good, hearty food and is a favourite among people of all ages. Here, you can find an extensive breakfast and brunch menu with ‘Harry’s’ English breakfast; scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and spinach; or avocado toast, amongst other offerings. And for brunch? Rolls, traditional or vegetarian BLTs or even burgers!

If your elderly friend or relative has restricted mobility, Thieving Harry’s offers good accessibility to the ground floor dining area. Situated in a characterful building in an up-and-coming part of Beverley, starting your day at Thieving Harry’s means you’re perfectly placed to discover Hull in an area that has seen a lot of change in recent years.

Not far from Thieving Harry’s is Nibble, located on the Fruit Market in Hull, the newest and still upcoming part of the town. A stone’s throw from The Deep, Nibble is well placed to fill yourself up with a delicious breakfast before taking a tour of that well-renowned submarium. If you like, you can even work up an appetite beforehand and wander around the Marina and along the River Humber.

With a satisfying menu, there’s a lot to choose from, including full breakfasts, eggs cooked in various ways, and breakfast sandwiches too; there’s bound to be something that takes your fancy.

Indoor and outdoor seating is on two different levels, but with a long ramp between them, accessibility shouldn’t be a problem.

The Omelette

With 50 years of trading under its belt and still going strong, The Omelette must be doing something right. If you’re taking your parents or grandparents out, they may have been here before; it’s such a stalwart on the Hull restaurant scene.

Breakfast is served all day (9.00 am until 4.00 pm), allowing you to enjoy the experience whenever it suits you. Alongside eggs and the English breakfast is the chance to try a Greek breakfast with spicy sausage, halloumi, hummus and olives. So, if you know any older friends out to try something new, you know where to bring them!

Urban 44

For something different, why not try Urban 44 in Hessle? A bustling little cafe where booking is a must, Urban 44 aims to bring “a slice of the Australian Coffee Culture to the Heart of Hessle”. British favourites like the English breakfast, bacon sandwich, and eggs Benedict feature heavily on the menu, but they’re joined by such temptations as banana bread, the breakfast croissant and a pancake stack.

With indoor and outdoor seating and no step up into the premises, it’s accessible whatever the weather. So whoever’s in your party, there’s something to please everyone’s palate, from grandad to older grandchildren.
