Sound the alarm, the pubs are back! In fact they’ve been back for over a week now and it’s been absolutely amazing to see Hull’s local pubs booked and busy; which unfortunately for my bank account, hasn’t helped.
We’ve been shouting out some of our favourite pubs and letting you know about some of the fantastic beer gardens that are either open or opening soon across Hull & East Yorkshire. And this week is no exception. We’ve rounded up some amazing pubs across the area so you don’t miss out the rest of this April.
35 Cottingham Rd, Hull HU5 2PP
A favourite amongst students and locals alike, Gardeners Arms have reopened their beer garden to and it’s definitely one to check out this April. Their menu is pouring with the best draught lagers, bottled beers, ciders and plenty of spirits, soft drinks, wines and whiskeys – there’s something for everyone. They claim to be the ‘home of beer, burgers and bants’ and I’m willing to believe them; I’ve had many beer and bants at Gards in my time (haven’t tried a burger yet though).
Nelson St, Hull, East Yorkshire HU1 1XE
This traditional, family run pub on the Humber is back with some great outdoor seating after the council relaxed the pavement licensing rules. They specialise in cask ales, craft beers, wines and bespoke cocktails. For the gin lovers, they have up to 50 gins all with their own perfect serve. If food is what you’re after then The Minerva has got you covered with a beautiful pub grub menu including home-made steak pie to freshly beer-battered haddock. Factor in all of this with the beautiful Humber backdrop then you’ve got yourself a fantastic evening.
The Whistling Goose
Oslo Rd, Sutton Fields, HU7 0YN, Sutton on Hull
We’ve been banging on about The Whistling Goose since their reopening this April. Not only because of their fantastic pub classics menu, but for their huge beer garden. They’ve recently reworked their beer garden to accommodate for outdoor dining and we think it looks fantastic! They’ve got all the room and all the booze you could ever ask for.

The Piper has been on quite a journey over the past year – last summer they reworked their space and created a fully fledged beer garden for those who wanted to ‘Eat Out to Help Out’. This year, that beer garden is even better and is definitely one to check out this April. They’ve also got some 3.5 litre self pour drink towers for beers and cocktails which is a nice touch.
