One of Hull’s most well-known pubs to undergo restoration improvements

One of Hull’s most well-known pubs will undergo restoration improvements following support from Levelling Up Funding (LUF).

The Whittington & Cat on Commercial Road, opposite Hull Marina, has been granted £69,916.69 from Hull City Council’s government backed LUF allocation.

The money has been awarded to Whittington and Cat Limited to support restoration to the building’s exterior, which has fallen into poor condition.

Roof, brick and chimney repairs are all part of the project which help to not only restore the building, but to ensure that it is also watertight.

Works will also enable The Whittington & Cat to bring back into use vacant rooms which have been deemed unsafe due to exterior damage, whilst also providing further employment opportunities as a result.

The estimate project costs are £167,199.05, meaning almost £100,000 of private capital is being invested.

Garry Taylor, assistant director for major projects, culture and place at the council, said: “The Whittington & Cat is a popular and well-known pub in a prime location, alongside Hull Marina.

“The building requires some restoration works and I am pleased that the council has been able to support this project through LUF.”
