96 draught beers from 57 breweries in 29 regions

and 43 bottled beers


Though this is a site to review beers, not pubs, I feel acknowledgements are due to some of the pubs supplying the beers reviewed.

Each of the following pubs is part of the JD Wetherspoon chain, which I can recommend for providing nationally the best choice of well kept ales, at reasonable prices.

The Zachariah Pearson (A) 386 Beverley Road, Hull  HU5 1LH (Now closed!)

The Admiral of the Humber (B) 1 Anlaby Road, Hull  HU1 2NT

The William Wiberforce (C) Trinity House Lane, Hull HU1 2JD (Now closed!)

The Three John Scotts (D) City Exchange, Alfred Gelder Street, Lowgate, Hull   HU1 1XW

They all provide consistently well kept beer, and I have never had any cause for complaint as to the standards of cellar craft in any of them.

Considering how much of my (admittedly infrequent) drinking is done in Hull, the rarity of my trips to the old town, (the proper old town, east of Lowgate,) is evident by the fact that Walters Bar opened almost three years ago, and I only discovered it just the other day.

It was voted Hull Pub of the Year in 2009 (and no doubt will be in 2010 too, if there's any justice.) The range of hand-pulled cask-conditioned ales is clearly the best in the area, with 13 guest ales, which change regularly. Cider drinkers are catered for with at least 6 guest ciders too.

With an excellent range of beers available, in a friendly relaxed atmosphere, I recommend it highly and suggest you pay them a visit whenever you're in the area. Find them at:

Walters Bar 21 Scale Lane, Hull  HU1 1LH

STOP PRESS (11/01/11) Walters Bar makes it two in a row by being voted Hull Pub of the Year 2010 (as predicted in this blog.)

Should I add any other pub to my list of regular providers, I will be sure to add details of it here.
