Visiting Hull (City of Culture) this last weekend we (2 couples) were looking for somewhere to eat on Sunday evening. A lot of the pubs didn't do food, so after a bit of googling came across the Lantern Restaurant. A rather low key and slightly...More

We used to eat lunch here in the late 60's early 70's, and were delighted to find that it has retained its charm, cosy atmosphere and fantastic food. It is still run by the same Greek Cypriot family, who are welcoming and friendly. We had...More

Hi Lantern, we have a family meal booked at your restaurant next week. As a vegetarian my options are limited so could I request an omelette as a main meal even though your menu states starter/lunchtime? Thank you in advance and we look forward to seeing you next week
