Profile information

Avid drinker since I was 13 years and 10 months - took it up seriously at 16 as I couldnt afford both ciggies and beer on my pocket money and have drunk most stuff ever since. Managed some London pubs in the 70s and had a tenancy in Whitstable in the 80s. Still love real ales, stout and a very cold lager when its tasty and the weather is hot, but I also drink a fair bit of red wine, but never French. Have all but given up the rum - must be getting old. Live near Hull and in the Isle of Man.

Fox & Coney Inn, South Cave

Fox closed down today, the operator company has also closed 3 other pubs. Owners looking for a new operator.

That leaves South Cave with just one pub (the Bear, opposite) and the Triton in nearby Brantingham.

The Wheatsheaf, Hull

Andy and Di are no longer at the Wheatsheaf, more's the pity. they moved to the Altisidora at Bishop Burton. The Wheatsheaf has had a few managers but none whose name us regulars even discovered. Lounge is now pretty devoid of any atmosphere at all. Still some Jenning guest ales. Food is pretty awful the last 2 times we tried it.

Parkers, Hull

PROMINENTLY LOCATED ON THE CORNER OF WALTON STREET, next to the new KC stadium. This has been an important drinking house for many years - it was called the Newington (aft6er the area its in) until the 70s but alwasys jknown colloquially as Parkers after an old manager from many years back.
Originally a Moors & Robsons house, then a Bass house, it was run by legendary Hull pub host Percy Johnson at that time too.
In recent years its had a reputation as a hard drinking 2 bar operation, with the usual karaoke and frequent fighting. Now closed for renovation and due to open after easter 2007. Owned by Enterprise Inns, it as a few car parking places at the back.
