With the regeneration of the Fruit Market and Humber Street not quite finished, there are many people in Hull who might not yet know about Nibble. As soon as the area is fully open for business again, which should only be a matter of weeks, I imagine that this small yet perfectly formed eatery will become even more popular.

Located in the centre of TheDock, Wykeland’s new home for digital and technology businesses, Nibble serves up freshly made meals to an ever-growing customer base. I personally have eaten there dozens of times, enjoying everything from a yoghurt with granola to their incredible breakfast, with many ingredients coming from Trinity Indoor Market. The menu is wide-ranging and changes often, with specials very much being their specialty.

In the last few days alone, their menu boards have presented chicken schnitzel on a pretzel bun, oriental veg in black bean sauce, Moroccan hariri soup, and triple bacon with smashed avocado. These are alongside their regular offerings, which include sandwiches, paninis, pasties, pizza slices, sausage rolls, a selection of crisps, sweet treats and fresh fruit, plus a range of hot and cold drinks.

This time around I went for something relatively simple yet highly satisfying. With autumn making way for winter, the spiced apple and root vegetable soup was the ideal way to warm the cockles. Compared to many of the meals I’ve had here, this one was relatively small. However, with everything at Nibble being lovingly made by experienced chefs under the management of Anna Lamb, their soup and a roll certainly filled a hole.

Whilst I could have left it there, I felt it only right to appease my sweet tooth with a chocolate brownie, which went nicely with a smooth flat white. (This is something else that needs to be said about Nibble: they serve a great coffee.)

As for the environment, Nibble is an incredible mix of bustling yet chilled. The decor is that of repurposed wooden crates, stylish lighting and bright white tiles, giving it a clean, welcoming and creative feel. Situated next to the C4DI (Centre for Digital Innovation), the place can be practically empty at 11:55am and then jam-packed at noon. Still, they also do take-outs, which is great if you fancy a walk around the picturesque marina or pier.

If you’re only in the mood for something small, I highly recommend their Scotch eggs, hash brown dippers or whatever the savoury of the season may be. With everything homemade and prepared in front of you, it’s almost like your granny has laid on a feast specially for you.

Nibble is open 7:30am-4pm Mon-Fri and 10am-3pm on Saturdays. You can find it next to the entrance of the C4DI on Queen Street. Limited period free street parking is available throughout the area.
