Introducing a new and exciting way to enjoy your meals and afternoon coffee breaks any day of the week! Go Dutch Pancake house, owned by husband and wife Nick and Bernie Wright, offers a light and cheery environment that is welcoming to any age group. 

The Pancake house opened on Pancake Day 2014 in the delightful location on Paragon Square, opposite the Hull war memorial statue. The owners are making plans to extend their seating area outside so people can enjoy their pancakes under the sun. Further plans include featuring live, local music and comedy acts in the large upstairs area to create an enjoyable experience that extends further than the delicious taste of their pancakes.

Their Dutch pancakes require a unique batch of flour that is sourced in Amsterdam. A trip is taken every 5 weeks to purchase the flour along with other Holland-branded goodies for anyone to buy to take home, or to order with their meals, including cool Dutch beers and chocolate milk.

They offer a wide choice of fillings that vary from sweet to savoury, to satisfy every taste bud and hunger level, with the choice between a 7” and 12” base. You can Go Mediterranean with toppings of feta cheese, olives, roasted cherry tomatoes, rocket leaves and pesto. Or, perhaps you’re wanting to Go Meaty with beef strips, pepperoni, salami, mixed pepper, onions and mozzarella cheese. Other flavours include Dutch (of course) Italian, Thai, Mexican, Oriental and more.

Now, what I imagine most pancake fans are wanting to know; the sweets! Well, they’re just as adventurous with their sweet flavours from the indulgent and delicious Go Dreamy Chocolate with chocolate drops, chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, Hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles) and specially made chocolate sauce. Or, what already sounds like my favourite, Go Raspberries with fresh raspberries, white chocolate drops, specially made white chocolate mousse and raspberry puree. I‘ll leave the rest of the heavenly flavours to your surprise.

You can also Go Creative by combining ingredients to make your own unique pancake concoction by adding different variations of meat, cheese, vegetables, fruit and spreadable toppings. For the little ones, you can order a Teddy Shaped Pancake with ice cream and a cordial drink included. They also cater for the non-pancake-lovers (they’re out there somewhere), with options such and soups and salads on the menu.

The owners say they have begun to receive a flow of regular customers and groups of families, who they often surprise extra treats for the children, to show their appreciation. They have also received bookings for large parties which they offer to prepare buffet spreads for.

Go Dutch Pancake House hits all the spots; it’s a local, family-run business that introduces us to a new dining culture and cuisine. The décor is modern and fresh with wonderfully colourful paintings by Hull-born Andrew Reid Wildman placed on the upper floor.
