Date Night at St Stephens Hull | #AliveAfter5*

If you know Hull you will know there is plenty to do aside from shopping in St Stephens shopping centre but did you know that the stores are open until 7pm on most week days & 8pm on a Thursday! I certainly didn't (despite living in Hull for most of my life!) I quite often forget that there are a variety of restaurants that you can visit along with a bowling alley, arcade, rock climbing and cinema that all stay open till late! We where recently invited by St Stephens to visit a restaurant and the Cinema! It is the perfect place for a date night and now Darren and I are married we want to take the date night opportunity as much as we can to beat the post wedding blues!
We where invited along to a mid-week meal at Zizzi's. We had not been to Zizzi's before so we where pretty excited to try it out!

We where surprised how big the restaurant was inside, the decor was really nice (Nice and Insta worthy). There was a LOT of choice but we decided to share starters as we both get food envy! We went for  Arancini balls which where incredible and the Fonduta Formaggi which is essentially a pot of melted gorgonzola, gruyère & pecorino cheese with bread for dipping, it was delicious!

I choose a pizza for my main as I LOVE pizza! I went for the Pulled Pork roma rustica which consisted of Slow-cooked pulled pork & crispy crackling on a white base of Fior di Latte & smoked mozzarella with pepperoni and sunblush tomatoes. It was sooo good - writing about it is actually making me hungry!! Darren had some spicy pizza, I cant actually remember the name but he loved it!

At that point we where stuffed and had to dash as we wanted to catch the next showing of Bohemian Rhapsody at the Reel Cinema but we decided to get take away desserts which we enjoyed the following evening. The meal was very reasonably priced and was delicious! We don't like to go to 'chain restaurants' very often however we will be returning to this one! 

We then visited the Reel cinema to watch Bohemian Rhapsody - it was incredible and I would 100% recommend you go see it! I would say the cinema is a little dated now and could do with a freshen up however, it is very conveniently located and well priced too!!

Over all we had such a nice evening, we will treating ourself to a mid-week date night more often! Thank you to St Stephens for our post-wedding treat!

*St Stephens paid for a meal & cinema tickets in return for a review however all opinions (and love for delicious food) are my own!
