Very traditional English pub feel and atmosphere. Near the city centre, a little out of the way and not really visible from a main street, but it is pretty easy to find if you know where it is and look it up before going. There are plenty of tables and booths and a pretty large bar area. There is a large cooler area with a glass wall for you to look into what bottles are available.
The waitress was pretty helpful and cheery. Wasn't overly knowledgeable, but knew what beer they had and what each beer was like so pretty good and helpful. Served in the correct glassware, they have a large selection of glassware from specific breweries.
Have some local Real Ales on cask as well as some others on tap, like St. Louis Kriek. A couple of nice ciders as well. Nothing special but the local ales are nice to see. A pretty extensive bottle selection (especially in regards to Belgians) but nothing really rare that would be hard to find other places.
Prices are about average, between £2-3 for a pint with some of the better bottled stuff being £3-5.
Overall, I liked the atmosphere, it gave off a traditional English pub feel, had helpful and cheery staff, and owners that do care about beer. Objectively this bar isn't anything special, at least in regards to selection of hard to get things, but for Hull this is pretty good. If you are in Hull or the area around Hull, check it out, but don't feel like you have to travel to Hull to check this place out.

Excellent pub with a great selection of Belgian and other world beers in the bottle. Great selection of British ales on handpumps and some German lagers, Belgian beers as well. There is a list on each table of the bottled beer selection with prices. The bottled beers can be very expensive but you are getting something that you won't get anywhere else in the city and they have most of the glasses to go with the beers.
My favourite beers are the Belgian christmas beers they get in which are exceptional for taste and bottle design. The bottles are kept in a glass walled cellar/cabinet so you can see the bottles before you buy.
