Unit 6, Monksway Retail Park, Kingswood, Hull HU7 3NS

Kingswood Pizza and Kingswood Fish Bar are twin restaurants next door to each other – both are popular spots, particularly buzzing on a Friday night. And for good reason – the focus here is on top-quality ingredients, and this commitment is what sets them apart from your typical takeaways.

The portions are generous, ensuring you won’t leave hungry. The chips are some of the best we’ve had – crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. And the fish? Beautifully cooked, wrapped in a crispy batter that makes each bite a little moment of joy.

It’s cash-only, like its neighbouring pizzeria, but this minor inconvenience hasn’t stopped people from lining up, especially when the weekend rolls around.
