A firm favourite amongst Beverlonians and visitors alike, Kavanagh’s is a lovely little lunch spot. In the heart of Beverley, its bright but cosy front rooms are simply but tastefully decorated and include a quirky old fireplace that you can sit underneath!

The menu is extensive with a wide selection of hot and cold sandwiches, salads, baked potatoes, breakfasts, and, if you’re feeling hungry, delicious main courses and specials.

Whether you’re shopping or just exploring the town, you can’t go wrong with Kavanagh’s. However, it can get busy quickly, so you may want to consider arriving slightly earlier. There’s a step up into the premises, too, something to think about if you need good accessibility.

Bert’s Pizzeria and Cafe

Bert’s sits on the edge of the lake in Dacre Lakeside Park in Brandesburton, between Beverley and Hornsea. An Italian Restaurant with a superb view, and indoor and outdoor seating, it’s an attractive prospect when thinking of where to take your loved ones for lunch.

The menu, served from noon onwards, includes pasta, pizzas, salads and burgers and contains some dishes that are quite distinct from your traditional Italian.

Bert’s is a destination restaurant; it’s not in the middle of town. It’s a place to go, savour your meal and enjoy watching the water sports or waterfowl. Despite the gravelled parking area, accessibility is good, with a ramp to the restaurant and seating on one level. It’s spacious, too, so if your elderly companions struggle to get around, Bert’s may be a good choice.

Robbie Johnson’s

In the centre of Hull beneath Hull City Hall, RJ’s is a well-loved cafe that is ideally placed for a day shopping or exploring the town. The menu offers traditional café fare and is also licensed so you can enjoy an alcoholic drink over your meal. It’s just the corner from the tourist information office, so after you’ve refuelled, why not see what’s on around the town or take on the Hull Fish Trail and explore the city through its fishing heritage!

Café seating is all on one level; however, toilets are on the first floor up a narrow staircase, so those with poor mobility or who use a wheelchair may not be able to access them.

Fancy a pub lunch? If you know your older friend or relative prefers pub fare, The Altisidora in Bishop Burton near Beverley could become your next go-to. The small fixed-price lunchtime menu, available on weekdays, offers two or three courses with a selection of pub favourites, including fish and chips.

However, if you’re looking to go out with the wider family for a pub meal on an evening or weekend, the main menu is extensive, from burgers, steaks, grills and pies, to sundaes, cheesecakes, crumbles and custard.

Disabled parking spaces are located at the side of the pub, leaving less distance to walk. And Bishop Burton is such a beautiful village you’re sure to find time to have a wander and see what it has to offer.
