Dram Shop, Hull, East Riding   2 comments


I left the Minerva and walked a bit to try to shake off the metallic taste from the beer.  It wasn’t working so the Dram Shop was a welcome sight…some whiskey would dissolve that awful aftertaste.



So, I entered and the bar was gorgeous: a big, round, early 20th-century island with the rail held up by these wonderful elephant heads (which I later found also in the Inkerman Tavern, so they might have been part of a brewery’s pub theme):



And, the whiskey was good.  I had a single malt to start but moved to a blend since I was just going to knock this one back and head into the old town.

The atmosphere here is pretty good.  Hull hipsters may still be hipsters, but they are also from Hull so they get it kind of wrong (which makes it all okay).
