The Crown and Anchor, Tickton.

Pub of the Week: Crown & Anchor, Tickton

A rite-of-passage if you grew up in East Yorkshire was a cycle ride up to Tickton to spend hot summer afternoons jumping off the footbridge above the River Hull. The river is narrow, straight and deep here and primarily used by pleasure cruisers, so the trick was always to bomb into the water without breaking your leg on the deck of a cabin cruiser. It’s a tradition upheld to this day, the only thing that’s changed is the pub next door has now gone upmarket.

The urgent positioning of bars and restaurants to claim the best spots to hook the 2017 tourist dollar has increased in recent weeks and the area of the city appointed the shiny, new Humber bohemia is looking less like a building site Sorry if I sound jaded, but I am. It’s been a long, frustrating couple of years if you care about what happens in Hull. Anyway, let’s leave that rant for another day and discuss Ambiente, the excellent tapas restaurant that you may recognise from their other branches in York and Leeds.
