2017 sees Hull  celebrate the title of “Capital of Culture” therefore it seems only right to celebrate what this diverse city has to offer. One of the most iconic pubs in Hull is the Minerva and you can certainly see why. If it wasn’t the river-front location which overlooks Hull Marina and White Rose award winning The Deep aquarium, then it might be the quirky fact that it is home to the smallest pub room in Britain. Either way, you will find The Minerva a homely place for lunch or an evening meal.

The two burgers on offer here could not be more different. The “Classic” British burger with prime 8oz beef steak is served with your favourite traditional vegetables, chunky chips and rich gravy. On the other hand the “Mexican” burger from the “Something Different” menu is for those with a more tolerant palette. The same 8oz prime British steak is topped with fiery chilli cheese, jalapeños, hot salsa accompanied by chunky chips and you can wash this down with a tipple from the extensive drinks menu.

The Minerva is open all week until late and can cater for parties!
