Establishing itself not just as an orthodox hotel bar but a complete sports pub, The Public House at The Village Hotel in Hull offers some superb pub grub in a warm environment.
Situated in a once major whaling and fishing centre, The Village Hotel Hull is right next to the River Humber along the A63. The Public House within The Village Hotel is decorated with comfort in mind, emulating a refurbished sports pub down to the letter, with large flat screen televisions, big leather sofa chairs and of course, a long stretching bar that serves an array of ales.
Also providing the beloved British food one would expect to find in a bar or pub, the menu at The Public House is full of light bites, bar nibbles and comfort foods. Ideal selections for those simply relaxing with a few drinks are the starters, which include a heap of cheese drenched nachos, accompanied by jalapenos and a tomato salsa, alongside an assortment of hummus and roasted red pepper pesto with a large baked flatbread for dipping. As for the larger groups, or a small gathering who likes a challenge, a ‘bucket’ of hot and sticky chicken wings.
Diners looking to pop in for a swift snack can treat themselves to one of the many tantalising sandwiches, clubs and wraps, featuring perfect lunch options like the spicy buffalo chicken wrap, the quaint cheddar and pickle sandwich, and the hearty The Village Club, filled with bacon, grilled chicken and a herb mayo.
More ravenous diners can quell those howling stomachs with satisfying dishes like one of the many burgers, pub classics or flatbread pizzas. Noteworthy choices include the rich Black and Blue gourmet burger, stacked with blue cheese, onions and sautéed mushrooms, the enticing chicken and BBQ pizza, topped with caramelised red onions, chicken and a bourbon BBQ sauce, and the scrumptious chickpea, spinach and sweet potato curry, lightly spiced and served with rice and a naan bread.
Those looking to end the occasion on a sweet note have some charming ‘dessert mug’ choices, such as a crème brulee and a lemon cheesecake option, while others looking for a more authentic pub meal experience can always vouch for a smooth Irish coffee.
Walk down the coast or venture into the gigantic aquarium, The Deep, after a meal for a sense of the seaside theme that runs throughout Hull. Whatever brings guests to the shores of Hull, they’re sure to find a sure-fire satisfier at The Public House at The Village Hotel.
