The Two Rivers Restaurant, opened in 2005 and is one of Hull's most unique restaurants located in the heart of the aquarium. Enjoy an evening with friends or family, for a romantic meal or to celebrate a special occasion. Diners are treated to a sumptuous menu, inspired by locally sourced and sustainable ingredients whilst being surrounded by some of Europe's best aquatic displays.

For additional dietary requirements, please contact us as we may be able to offer additional dishes to suit your needs by prior arrangement. Full allergen details can be provided on request.

Two Rivers Restaurant welcomes families, however we ask that children are supervised at all times and that all guests are respectful of other diners. A children's menu is available, suitable for guests up to 12 years old and priced at £9.95 for two courses or £12.95 for three courses. Please let us know when booking if children are included in your party. 

The seating arrangements in the restaurant are bespoke each evening and we do not take requests for tank side seating. It is a popular enquiry as many guests chose to visit us to celebrate a special occasion. In order to make the seating as fair as possible, tank side tables are allocated in date order of reservation with the first bookings placed given priority. All tables are located in view of the tank windows.

The restaurant is located within The Deep exhibition with varied exhibits open. During the course of the evening, guests have the opportunity to view the displays in their nocturnal environment, with the lighting levels in the tanks dimming throughout the evening until approximately 9pm when our Curator insists on ‘lights out’ so that the animals can have their rest for the night!  Please note guests are not able to view the penguins during visits to the restaurant.

FOR PARTIES OF 30 OR MORE - in the case of large groups of 30 or more, some dishes on the menu may not be available, but our team will be able to advise you on this.


We are pleased to be able to offer an accessible dining experience to all our guests at the Two Rivers restaurant. The Deep's mobility aids (wheelchairs, electric scooters), ear defenders, additional staff assistance and large print menus are available as well as familiarisation visits in advance of a reservation.

Just a quick card to say how impressed we were when we came to celebrate Peter’s 65th Birthday! The food was outstanding and enjoyed by all –especially the grandchildren, so please pass that onto the chef! The bar staff and the waiting staff did a great job making sure we were happy with everything. We weren’t rushed and all in all it was a perfect evening. We have been before but to our guests–four from Ashby de la Zouche, two from Ripon and one from Thorngumbald, it was a "first" and has been talked about ever since.

Chris Reep

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for Saturday night. The food was delicious, the staff very warm and friendly and the ambiance just magical. We were treated as if we were the only guests in the restaurant. We shall definitely be back.

Helen Horrobin
