Two new venues are set to come to Hull and the East Riding after their licensing applications were among those lodged this year.

A botanical-themed bar in Hull's Princes Quay and a Beverley restaurant from MasterChef winner Eddie Scott are among the licence applications lodged so far this year.

Businesses that want to sell alcohol for people to drink on or off their premises are required to apply for and be granted a licence from their local council.


These applications have to specify the venue's opening hours, when it will serve alcohol and how it would deal with any nuisance behaviour or disturbances to people living nearby.

Applications can be approved by council officers if they are uncontroversial or, if objections are lodged, then they have to go before a licensing committee.

Iron Lilies, Princes Quay

Iron Lilies is a 200-seat botanical-themed bar and restaurant which is set to open in the former Virgin Megastore unit in Princes Quay.

Owners Toyko Industries applied for a licence to run from 8am to 3am, seven days a week.

The company said the bar was designed to make a statement and offer patrons an enchanting dining experience.

The bar, which is set to offer visitors riverside views, received a £750,000 Levelling Up grant from Hull City Council.

L'Opaline Bistrot, Beverley

L'Opaline Bistrot from MasterChef 2022 winner Eddie Scott was given the go ahead for an alcohol licence at a council hearing in February.

The venue, in Highgate, applied for opening hours of between 10am and 11.30pm for seven days a week.

It has room for between 18 and 20 customers and former Humber marine pilot Mr Scott said it would offer French and classical Indian fusion cuisine.

Mr Scott sought to reassure neighbours John Branton and Christine Robinson after they raised concerns about noise and councillors approved the application after listening to both parties.
