I enjoyed two delicious beers brewed right on the premises, and an excellent meal as well. The service was excellent, quick and attentive without being annoying or in-your-face, they hit just the right balance. I'll definitely return next time I'm in the area!

Great place to get a cold beer and a meal in old Hull. Patio is beautiful and spacious. Staff is fast, friendly and food is good. Usual pub like fare but items available for those looking for a more healthy choice.
