The port of Kingston-upon-Hull is one of England's most historical and diverse cities and boasts a wealth of taverns, inns, alehouses, and public houses. Most of the older drinking establishments that have survived have stories to tell; frequently quirky or surprising, always interesting and often with nautical links, given the city's links over the centuries with the fishing and shipbuilding industries. Author and historian, Paul Chrystal takes the reader on a fascinating tour around some of the oldest and most notorious watering holes in the city and its surrounding villages, relating facts and drunken tales as diverse as the English Civil War, Philip Larkin and the slave trade. The book explores their histories and hidden secrets and tells of the many characters that have frequented or run the city's public houses. Hull Pubs will make locals and visitors alike want to visit one of the city's venerable old taverns.
