Restaurants and iconic businesses


For over 40 years, the Cerutti family have served fresh and locally-inspired food from their restaurants in Hull and Beverly, as well as extra special catering for events. Cerutti's was founded in 1974 and specialise in seafood, offering a 'catch of the day' dish, to take advantage of the species caught seasonally.

Papa's Fish and Chips
The first Papa's restaurant openeded in 1966 in Margate, Kent, but the family moved north in the 1990s and now offer fish and chips to thousands of customers each week from restaurants in Bilton, Hull City Centre, Cleethorpes, Scarborough and Willerby. In 2017, Papa's was named the UK's best fish and chip shop in BBC2's 'Best of British Takeaways' judged by chef Tom Kerridge. The Papa's restaurant in Willerby has Marine Stewardship Council certification so customers can choose ecolabeled fish and be confident that their fish can be traced back to a certified sustainable fishery.

If you're looking for lobster mac-and-cheese or local beer-battered fish in an indoor setting, Shoot the Bull also operate a pub/restaurant in one of Hull's most iconic buildings - the Old House on Scale Lane.
