6A Princes Avenue, Hull, North Yorkshire, HU5 3QA

Pub overview

This wet led business is already well established for trading within the mainstream/premium sector in the city of Hull. Maintaining the great customer service and drinks offer will be most important to continue the success of the business, whilst there is a great opportunity to improve and grow the food offer too!

The former Old Zoological pub on Princes Avenue has become renowned locally for all things great about food, drink, sports and music - the place to be on a weekend, whilst through the week passing and local trade is already established.

The operator must have the capability to retain the high standards, with a passion to consistently deliver high quality food, drink and the environment that keeps people coming back time and time again.

The interior consists of several areas, some raised, some open and with some intimate booths.
