The pinnacle of vegan/vegetarian dining

Pretty much the best vegan/vegetarian restaurant one can visit. I’ve had multiple celebratory meals here and feel so lucky to live locally- it’s so good that I’d be willing to travel a good distance for it. Usually all but maybe one or two things at the buffet are vegan (this is always clearly delineated by staff) and the selection of desserts is otherworldly. Such a unique experience, delicious food, great concept & it’s even bring your own booze! Don’t know how it could get much better. This is pretty much the pinnacle of vegan dining in my opinion. Go.

Pros: Bring your own booze, Almost 100% vegan, All-you-can-eat

Fabulous Restaurant!

Hitchcock’s has been one of my favourite places to go for a meal with friends and colleagues, some of whom are vegetarian and some like me are vegan. We have always all enjoyed everything they’ve cooked and it’s super friendly and chilled. The first person to book chooses the nationality of the food that night and I’ve sampled lots of lovely new foods there. Some things are just vegetarian but they are clearly marked. The price is also really good, I highly recommend Hitchcock’s especially if there’s a group of you, but book well ahead.

Pros: Loads of amazing choices of vegan delights , Super friendly , Fair price

Favourite restaurant!

Innovative concept where the food menus are based on different countries. Most of the food is vegan, staff ask about dietary requirements when you book and anything that isn't vegan is clearly labelled. Definitely worth a visit when in Hull.

Good food, good atmosphere

Went for a hen party, we were the first people to book for that night so got to pick the theme of the buffet. We chose Mediterranean and the food was amazing! Staff were lovely and the atmosphere is really chill I loved it.

Hitchcock's is brilliant for vegans

We celebrated Veganuary this year with a trip to Hull to eat at the highly unusual but always amazing Hitchcock's. The theme on this occasion was Middle Eastern. Apart from a couple of clearly explained vegetarian dishes, everything was vegan. It was all completely delicious! Loved it! #Veganuary

Pros: Fantastic vegan buffet items, Eclectic unusual place, Great value for money

Love this place

Hitchcocks concept is so unique - each evening the menu is a different cuisine from around the world. It’s buffet style. I’ve been to a few different nights here and they are really accommodating to vegans and allergies. The chef came out and explained everything that is vegan. They also have an amazing selection of desserts!

Pros: Different each time , Huge selection , Amazing staff

Cons: Hard to get into , Not always open , Serves food late

Great experience

Tucked away treasure in Hull with a great atmosphere, lovely staff and wonderful food. All you can eat with a different theme picked by the first person who books. They make a vegan version of all savoury food and plenty of choice for vegan cakes. The pecan pie is delightful!

Huge vegan selection

Dinner at Hitchcock’s vegetarian restaurant is a buffet affair with a huge range of vegan dishes. All choices are clearly labelled as vegan or non-vegan making it easy to enjoy a wide range of dishes. For the all-in price you get starters then the main course buffet followed by (if you have any room!) desserts and coffee/ tea. All of this is provided by welcoming and friendly staff in a setting with a great ambiance. Hull is indeed a lucky town to have such a great establishment

Same old same old

Been to this place quite a few times and it seems that they produce the same old stuff no matter what the theme is. Also, it can feel a bit like a school canteen as everybody queues up all at once. Needs a bit of a spark to bring it up to date otherwise it’ll end up closing down. There are many, much better contenders out there now. This (once quirky) place needs to keep up with the times.

Pros: All you can eat

Cons: Bland food


01 Dec 2019

Three of those 'up to date contenders' have shut down in the past few weeks. After years in business it's possible that Hitchcocks understand their market, and that market forces might just be more powerful than your opinion.

The food there is great, it's been different every time I've eaten there. Each to their own.

Never Disappointed

Even though we have only once booked far enough in advance to choose the theme for the evening's food, we have never been disappointed with the huge selection on offer each time we have visited. Although this is a vegetarian establishment, very many of their dishes are vegan (always labelled) so there is more than enough choice to satisfy every palate. It is quirky, friendly, reasonably priced and a real "must-visit" eatery if in Hull.

Pros: Wide variety of dishes on offer, Quirky ambiance and friendly staff, Set price for eat as much as you want

Cons: Off the beaten track

My favourite resturant

I have been going to Hitchcok's for years and it is easily my favourite restaurant. There is a huge selection of vegan food, a great little bar that stocks everything and incredibly friendly service. With all the different menu options there is always something new to try and the desserts are out of this world! I would highly reccomend anyone to go!

Food Heaven!

Been coming here for years. The staff are lovely, always plenty of vegan options and the food is really good. Well worth the £20 for 3 courses plus tea/coffee. English, Thai and Mexican are my favourite cuisine themes.

Pros: Lots of vegan options., Friendly staff., All you can eat.

Traditional British veggie vibes!

Tasty, healthy, too easy to overeat! Charming slightly 70s veggie vibe, which my friend and I rather liked - reminded me a bit of Food for Friends that used to be in Covent Garden. Much bigger than I expected and packed when we were there - you have to ring a doorbell and the staff come and let you in, which makes it pleasingly like being in a secret society. Very friendly atmosphere. Loads of vegan options. Some people might not like the buffet service style, but if you're up for that then this place is very good.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good value, Lots of choice (within the theme of the evening!)

Cons: Really easy to overeat...

The best thing about living in Hull

An all you can eat place in which the first person to book gets to pick from any World theme; all Veggie, mostly Vegan and the chef will cook up some of the Veggie things Vegan and bring them to your table. Awesome food, lovely staff and I always feel like I've had a food overdose (and easily the best thing about living in Hull)

Pros: All the food, The variety of food, The staff

Best food in the north

We visit from Australia every time we are over. I would visit Hull especially for this place and have converted my Omni family to appreciate delicious vegan food. The ice cream and cake is worth saving space for in your tummy.

Pros: Vibe, Food

Cons: Being seated next to loyd screeching banshees

I have been to Hitchcock's numerous times over the last 4 years, each occasion happened to be a different cuisine. It is quite exciting trying the flavours of different countries and clearly lots of research goes into creating a varied menu.
The first person to book for that night gets to choose the cuisine which is a fun idea even though we have never been first.
By far our favourite has been Indian, I have never tasted such amazing bhajis and curries to die for. Also the Plantain curry on Caribbean night was wonderful. Or most recent visit was south african and my least favourite, my only really criticism was quorn being used in too many dishes making it unsuitable for vegans and not really adding anything to the dish. The salsa and guacamole starters were by far the tastiest salsa and guacamole I have ever tasted though! The deserts.... well they are wonderful... The homemade vegan carrot cake was spectacular.
The decor, which could do with a bit of updating but I wouldn't call the place dirty. There is a great atmosphere here, the staff and welcoming and attentive, I would definitely recommend it.

Pros: variety and flavours, service, deserts

Cons: decor, toilets

Nice food in laid back atmosphere

I have been many times and love the choice and different menus. However, the last time I went (Indian night) the potatoes in everything were far too hard and inedible. This spoilt the currys, bombay aloo etc. It would be nice if a few of their desserts were home made. I would give it another go though.

Pros: variety, all you can eat

Cons: under cooked food, needs a refurb

The first time I visited the theme was Irish and American so didn't enjoy greatly. The second time was Mexican and Brazilian and the food was fantastic - agreed by my non-veggie companions. Plenty of choice and can go back for seconds. Definitely worth a visit when in the area.

Pros: tasty food, lots of choice, friendly staff

Cons: could only see 1 entrance - is upstair, could be firetrap?

A night out

We hadn't been to Hitchcock's for about six years and loved it then(we live in Gloucestershire and visit Hull several times a year). Well this March we weren't disappointed. The theme was Mediterranian and delicious. The cheesey aubergine thing was very more-ish and everything else was very good and hot too. We like everying about the place, the atmosphere, the quirkiness and particularly the food. It's just a shame there isn't a Hitchcock's nearer home. My husband is a very fussy eater and even he has no complaints! Very good value at £15 too.

Pros: food excellent, good value, pleasant staff

Vegetastic! :D :D :D

A fabulous place! I only wish it were open for lunch too! Haha. The first guest to book chooses a theme for the evening- especially good have been Mexican, Italian and Christmas. It has a wonderful oldy worlde feel, with wooden beams and candles everywhere and thanks to its location in Hull's Oldtown.You arrive betweeen 8pm and 9pm, and themed starters will await you on your table...e.g. bruschetta and olives on Italian night. Drinks are very, very good value and readily available at the bar or bring your own for £1 corkage. After whetting your appetite, make room and go queue for the buffet! Never had a bad meal here, always an array of salads, sauces, and delicious, piping hot, fresh dishes to enjoy. Eat as much as you like...but by the time you have tried everything, you won't have much room! Try to save some for dessert, as there is a buffet of fruit, cakes, puddings and dairy and vegan ice creams. £16, I believe, for 3 courses + coffee or £12 for students, but not at weekend. You have to try this place! Boook ahead, especially at Christmas- it's popular!

Pros: Fun themes!, Amazing food!, Very Vegan friendly!!!

Cons: None!

The Super Hero of Buffets

A simply brilliant place with a tremendous atmosphere and reputation set in Hull old town. They have one seating each evening serving a particular type of food (Spanish, Eastern European, Mexican, Italian etc) depending on who has made the first booking and decided on the theme of the evening. Plenty of seating in a huge place, loads of food with many vegan options and cheap house wine. You can even take you own booze if desired. A great great place with a wonderful vibe.

Pros: food, atmosphere

Fantastic food

I went to Hitchcock's last night for my birthday and had a fantastic meal. The theme was Italian and there was so much to choose from. All the dishes were tasty, but my favourite was the lasagne. Remember to leave enough room for dessert as the cakes and puddings are amazing as well!

Pros: Fantastic food, Very friendly staff, Large portions

Hitchcock's, Hull

I've been once. The theme for that evenings was Chinese. I've had tastier Chinese food but I believe this place has a good rep foodwise so maybe it was just bad timing by me. There were certainly lots of vegan options. I went in a party of about 25 all of whom raved about the desserts. I had the pecan pie with vegan chocolate ice cream and vegan custard; sensational.

Pros: Terrific pecan pie
