A former post office and newsagents in Beverley Road has been given the green light to be turned into a 30-seater restaurant.
Planning consent has been given to convert the two-storey terraced house, which used to be part of Stepney Post Office & News, into a new eatery.
As part of the redesign, extensive changes are set to be made to the premises with plans to install seats at the front of restaurant with a bar and toilets.
The new restaurant will be being designed by Hessle Road-based CK Architectural, although it is not yet known what type of food the diner will serve.

According to a report submitted to Hull City Council, the proposed change of use only refers to the ground floor of the property with flats on the first floor set to be maintained.
Mr Ali, the applicant behind the masterplan, wants to open the premises between 5pm and 11pm every day of the week. However, he will not open the restaurant on Tuesdays.
Given the location of the property, a noise assessment was also carried out despite there being no objections from nearby residents.

This concluded that noise interference would be “ambient” but not disruptive.
The report said: “Given the site’s location on a main arterial route into the city, within a designated shopping centre where there are other food and drink uses, it is considered that a level of ambient noise can be expected.
“Given that the site comprises a mid-terrace property with its frontage onto Beverley Road, the majority of activity would take place at the front of the premises, away from the residential side streets off Beverley Road.
“It is considered that the proposed development would not result in a material increase in noise and disturbance within the surrounding area which would harm the amenity of the area.
“The proposed hours of opening are considered to be reasonable and consistent with previous approvals on the street and should be conditioned as part of any approval to protect the amenity of neighbouring residential properties.”
