Review on 1884 Dock Street Kitchen
1884 Dock Street Kitchen, once home to a rope factory that supplied the ships on the Humber Estuary has been completely renovated into a luxury restaurant. Idyllically situated overlooking the scenic vistas of the marina, it is easily accessible from the M62 and a short stroll from Hull's city centre. The smart interiors are reminiscent of the the restaurants in New York's Meat Packing District, with a theatre-style kitchen and there's a nod to its history with old posters and artwork adorning the walls from the era of 1884.
Chef/patron is James Allcock who has climbed the culinary ladder in prestigious kitchens such as the luxurious Knightsbridge, The Berkeley Hotel, alongside renowned chefs Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing. Seasonal menus highlight the first-class local produced ingredients with a 'gate to plate' philosophy, showcasing dishes of the finest quality reflecting modern British recipes.
The a la carte menu works its way through starters such as risotto of North Sea lobster, baby spinach and Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire cheese or pressed ham hock terrine, shallow-fried quail's egg and spiced pineapple pickle. Main courses also take full account of the sea and the land, spanning everything from loin of local shot Fallow deer, braised red cabbage, bubble 'n' squeak potato cake, English air-dried ham and blackberries or chunk of North Sea halibut, garden herb mayonnaise, saffron-pickled Shetland mussels and mustard frills. Delicious desserts close the show with a warm treacle tart, roast plums, thyme, paired with Stamfrey Farm organic clotted cream ice cream or rich dark chocolate délice, milk ice cream, vanilla poached pear and hazelnut.
Accompanying the menu is a well conceived wine list knowledgeably garnered from all corners of the world.
