Eating Out

Eating out in The East Riding

Eating out with kids can sometimes be a challenge (!)  but there are plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants in Hull and the East Riding area which really do welcome children and families.These places are not all ‘exclusively’ for families or children but they have all shown thoughtful touches or great facilities (things like pushchair access, changing facilities, highchairs)

At Hull and East Riding Mumbler we are always looking to ‘spread the word’ so if you know of a pub, restaurant or cafe that should be included in this listing then please contact us here.
