Ye Olde White Harte

25 Silver Street, Hull, Hu1 1JG 01482 326 363

We say

Calling something 'ye olde' doesn't usually impress us, but we're prepared to make an exception for Hull's oldest pub, which has been a fixture of the Old Town since the late 18th century. Earlier, when it was a private house, Hull's governor took to the upstairs room now known as the 'Plotting Parlour' and resolved to deny King Charles I entry to the town – upon which all heck broke loose as the English Civil War erupted. Old wooden panels, vintage tiled fireplaces, a shaded alley courtyard – oh, and a secret tunnel and a mysterious skull – all add up to a proper 'ye olde' atmosphere, which for once is thoroughly appreciated.
