A work colleague and I had dinner at the The Lantern Restaurant in Hull on the 5th Of November. Whilst the decor was simple and very 1970's, it added to the charm of the restauarnt. Both our starters and our main courses were delicious and the service was excellent. The restaurant was recommended to us by a pub landlord who said that it was a "hidden gem" in Hull. I certainly would revisit this restaurant next time I am in Hull.

We had a great evening with the family at the Lantern we had booked and ordered our meals prior
to our arrival had a few drinks at the bar which can get a bit busy,when seated at the table the starters were served promptly with a nicely timed interval before main courses which were cooked to perfection.
The owners and staff do there very best to make your time there enjoyable.

we were in Hull for a bank holiday weekend. trying to find a restaurant open on a Monday bank holiday was a bit of a chore to be honest.
The decor is rather dated, however the food was fabulous even if every side order you want with your main course has to be paid for.
We couldn't fault any of it. Charming staff with time to chat and quality food.

Had another great meal in the Lantern after spending the day at the Hull Freedom festival. My wife had Avocado and prawns, with me having the superb garlic mushrooms with us both having probably the largest halibut we have ever eaten!

The food is authentic, great portions, cooked to perfection by the owner who knows his way around the kitchen. The serving staff continually ensure your food is to your satisfaction, topping up wine and water as if by ESP!

Some reviewers may wish for 'foam' and a 'tasting menu', but I cannot recall having found any other restaurant that continues to provide food of quality and quantity like this one.

It may not be chic but its friendly, comfortable and well priced. It is also immaculately clean.

Newcomers need to ask for advice and they will get it from Nikki who is incredibly friendly !

Will be back soon. 49 years young!

The service was excellent, within 10 minutes of arrival we had ordered our meal and was sat down tucking in to a very ample starter. The steaks were both cooked to perfection and the portion sizes were very good and was excellent value for money. Although their was an issue with the meal it was re-cooked within 10 minutes and the staff were more than apologetic. Overall the staff were very polite and welcoming, the service was brilliant, you won't find a better steak for miles.
