COVID-19 – Information

The laws governing the hospitality industry and social gatherings are continually changing.

From Thursday 5th November 2020, England enters its second lockdown period, effective until at the very earliest Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

As of Monday 2nd November, Rupert & Darwin will be closed until the end of this lockdown period. We will be introducing a ‘finish at home’ Sunday Lunch takeaway – details to follow in the next day or so.

Thank you so much to all of our wonderful loyal customers who have helped us gain so much momentum since we reopened in July, and we look forward to welcoming you as soon as we are able to open our doors again.

In the meantime, stay safe, look after your loved ones, and let’s all work together to bring an end to this abhorrent situation as soon as possible.

About Us

Rupert & Darwin is an award-winning small neighbourhood restaurant & wine bar nestled in the heart of the bustling Princes Avenue community.

We champion seasonal produce and aim to use the finest ingredients, sourced locally where possible, without compromising on quality.

Our aim is simple – to provide beautifully cooked, great value food in a relaxed, comfortable, family-friendly environment. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

We are a dog-friendly restaurant and you are always welcome to bring your dog whenever you dine with us. All we ask is that you let us know that you are bringing your dog with you when you book. On Sundays, you can make your dog’s day, as we can offer a doggy dinner for a minimum donation of £2 to Hull Animal Welfare Trust (You may of course donate as much as you like). 100% of donations go directly to Hull Animal Welfare Trust. You can find out more about their work at

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, we have amended our working practices and put various measures in place.
