    On the recommendation of a daughters friend who goes regularly we're going to celebrate a birthday tonight at [email protected] - anyone eaten there, menu recommendations? Most importantly, is there a decent watering hole nearby for pre-scoff drinks? It really does have to be fairly close as one of our number hobbles along using sticks ...... what say you City gastronauts and bon vivants?

    Minerva is always good
    Can’t say I’ve been down Humber st so there’ll be some poncy craft place down there charging an arm and a leg no doubt
    Go in Minerva it’s proper

    I liked the place, but the menu was a bit fancier than I expected.
    The food was limited in choice but really nice I must say. Just unusual (like Roe Deer Biryani for example!)
    There’s plenty of places to drink nearby. Personally I’d give Green Bricks or whatever it’s called nowadays a miss as the beers not very good and either go Taphouse on Humber St or Minerva (Tommy Coyles place Barrow Boys is next door too but I haven’t been in there so can’t comment)

    Have a great night

    The rhubarb and ginger beer in there was very good.

    I like Tapasya, been there quite a few times, though I'm a bit surprised it's still there, it's often not been busy when I've been in.

    There's Barrow Boys (formerly 1884) and Green Bricks (now called Humber Bar & Grill) next door and on Humber Street, there's Humber Street Distillery.

    Same as you Chazz, I know all the good pubs in the Old Town but, the woman with the sticks might see us stuck in a 'poncy craft place' - I'll see if I can get support for dumping her in the restaurant and the rest of us able bodied going to Minerva ....... a friend in need n all that <laugh>

    Probably, I've not been in for years and I've never been to Barrow Boys.

    Been bringing Londoners & Lincy types to Hull Old Town for the 40 odd years I've been left - never had a bad night yet and every bugger who's been wants to go again, I'm guessing tonight will be no different.


    Thanks for the tips gents - looks like Minerva it is!

    Get yourself in somewhere poncy Spes and console yourself that your not where I am paying €10 for a Peroni! (actually to be fair although I have paid that it’s a really wide price range as I’ve also paid €3 for a 660ml bottle of Peroni in a bar...weird)

    I think all the clubs have them nowadays, I know junior and his mates were always in 'VIP' at Pozition.

    As far as I understand it, buying a £50 bottle of vodka gets you in and you get to pick the birds allowed in to drink it with you. <laugh>

    Taphouse on Humber Street. The finest choice of real ales, lagers and ciders in the town.
    Ate at Tapasya only the once. Lovely place but never went back. Other members of our party loved it.

    I was paying and the company bored me to death talking politics all night, when I wanted to talk about me.

    Sometimes you are glad you grew up in simpler times.

    As all the old clubs are closed down now, position/La's etc what's Waterfront like these days, Atik? Do they use the old cellar bar/tunnel bar still? Liked Quayside next door back in the day.
