FREE MAGAZINE OF HULL & EAST YORKSHIRE BRANCH OF THE CAMPAIGN FOR REAL ALE (CAMRA) CIRCULATION 5500 PLUS

100 NOT OUT - AGAIN! Welcome to our 100th edition of your local Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA Branch magazine - the first edition of this format and style of Pub Mirror was published in January 1992. Twenty five years of spreading the news and thoughts of CAMRA, locally, regionally and nationally. A full copy of the first magazine, pictured right, is in the middle pages of this publication along with the full history of Pub Mirror complemented with some pictures of the evolution of the magazine through the years. We have come a long way since ‘Letraset’, copy and paste, and photocopying, but as one who first started using such media I have every respect for my forebears who did such sterling work to produce those early magazines. Why 100 not out - again? Well although this is the 100th edition of this style of Pub Mirror, there was a former life to this magazine (all 123 of them). Further details are included on the centre page special on Pub Mirror. Here’s to the next 100 editions and the further circulation of the aims and successes of CAMRA! L

FROM THE EDITOR - BERNIE CAWTE Welcome to the 100th edition of this style of Pub Mirror, I hope you will enjoy our trip down Pub Mirror’s Memory Lane. As you will see in our Pub Mirror history article (copied in part from Ken Smith’s 40th Anniversary Branch publication) it is in fact the 100th edition of Pub Mirror mark 2. The previous style of Pub Mirror ran for 123 editions before changing to the current format. So we are proud to say that overall Pub Mirror has had 223 editions spanning the last 40 years.

By the time we go to press the result of the ‘snap’ General Election will be kown, CAMRA as a non-political, not for profit organisation, have no views on which party wins. What we do have is policies that we will promote and support irrespective of the party in power. Those policies are: Cutting Tax on Real Ale, Cider & Perry: Protecting Pubs: Pubs & Wellbeing: New Alcohol Guidelines: Promoting Real Ale, Cider and Perry and the Pubs themselves.

I think you will probably find we are the longest running ‘free’ magazine in the area and our thanks go to the many contributors, willing volunteers and advertisers for making that happen.

If you feel strongly about any of the above aims of CAMRA then why not join us in the fight, a membership form can be found in this publication as well as on our branch website at www,hull,camra.org.uk

NEXT PUB MIRROR

We would like to place on record our thanks to the following pubs, for the hospitality shown for our various Branch meetings, activities over the last few months: King William, Cottingham Lord Nelson, Hull Ye Olde White Harte, Hull St Johns Hotel, Hull Furley & Co, Hull Kingston Hotel, Hull Yates, Hull Finally, I hope you have all been able to attend some of the events that have taken place so far in the City of Culture program. If not, try to it will be well worth your while. We send our congratulations to the CofC committee/staff for their work to date. The best is yet to come on 16th to 18th November: 5 The Hull Real Ale & Cider Festival at Hull Minster. See you all there.

The next edition of Pub Mirror is due for publication in the second week of September 2017. Any contribution for that edition needs to be with the editor by 14th August 2017, you can email your article to the editor at: pubmirror@hull.camra.org.uk Advertising rates are unchanged for the fifth year running and you can advertise on a one off basis or in bulk adverts, discounts are available.

HULL PUBS REPORT BY JON MAJOR My first 3 months as Hull Pubs Campaign Officer has kept me busy visiting lots of pubs around Hull including many that do not sell real ale. I made a decision to include these on my travels to find out what they offered their local community, speaking to many managers who would like to sell real ale but were under the impression it would not sell with their customer base. Over the coming months I plan on visiting many more and meeting many more managers. Of course it will take me a long time to get round every one but in the meantime if you have recently taken over a new venture or indeed added real ale or cider or even if you want a visit to update your 'What Pub' profile please let me know either by e- Mail or via the phone number at the front of this publication. Pubs that have recently re-opened in this first quarter are: Corn Exchange (below) which is now back to its original name after a short life as Dexters. They are offering four real ales on a rotating basis. The food menu is a 'pieminster' menu 6 and as the name suggests is mainly pies which I have been assured are very nice but as yet I have not got around to try. It is now managed by CAMRA member Darron McCarthy and he has retained the CAMRA members’ discount.

As reported in the last edition of Pub Mirror Green Bricks has undergone a redevelopment and has been greatly transformed inside which incorporates a bar and grill. It has also reverted to its original name of Humber Dock Tavern. It was also reported that the Bull on Beverley Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

Road had closed, this is not the case, it is still open and will remain open until any planned re-development work takes place. Oak Vaults, Scott Street - I am happy to report is now reopen after many years of closure and the building basically falling into dilapidation. Paul and Dean, the new owners have put a lot of money, time and effort into rebuilding this once loved community pub and the inside is looking good. They have also installed two hand pulled real ales which will include regular appearances of local breweries. Entertainment and karaoke is on at weekends and the bar also boasts an upright piano for added entertainment if anyone is willing to play it. It looks promising that the Oak Vaults will soon be back to being a great community asset. Cornmill Hotel on Holderness Road is now reopen after a massive refurbishment after being closed for many years and has included a bar open to non residents. Dram Shop see seperate report on page 43. New pubs in our area Dive Bar - this new American style dive bar has opened on Princes Avenue opposite Pave and is proving a big success, unfortunately they do not sell real ale. Chilli Devil - a small and friendly real ale bar has opened on Manor Street between Burlington Tavern and the George. It is owned by Ian Ibbetson and offers four ales including many from local breweries along with two real ciders. Ian is very well known locally for his chilli sauce and homemade chillis and he has four daily specials of these for sale which includes a vegetarian option and if you're still hungry after your first portion you can get a refill at a discounted price. This is proving to be a great addition to the city centre real ale trail. Refurbishments Kingston (opposite top) on Trinity square has undergone a10 day refurbishment, it is now Branch Website - www.hull.camra.org.uk


HULL PUBS REPORT BY JON MAJOR Tony Garrett has taken over and I'm sure he will keep on the tradition of good quality real ales and ciders, I'd like to wish both Stewart & Tony best wishes in their future ventures. One place that may be good to note is that award winning Papa's fish restaurant in both Bilton & Willerby are selling handpulled real ales that you can enjoy with your meal. Regular ales are Black Sheep and Timothy Taylor Landlord. Closures

re-open and it is a friendly, welcoming business and as usual it still offers a good selection of real ale. Change of ownership The award winning Hop & Vine has recently changed hands. Stewart has now stood down after 10 years at the helm and CAMRA member

Sadly we have lost a pub this quarter. The Bay Horse on Wincolmlee has closed its doors as of 1st May. Planning is now in place to make the building into flats. Admiral of the Humber will be closed until the 23rd June for major refurbishment. They are adding 22 new bedrooms to became the newest Wetherspoon hotel in the country.

HOLDERNESS PUBS REPORT BY BRIAN JOHNSON This time I would like to focus on a newly opened pub in Withernsea. The Captain Williams (below) opened to customers about a month ago after a two-year refurbishment. Many of you will remember it as the Marine Bar on the north promenade which closed about five years ago and if you remember it as a dingy place with low ceilings then you really need to pay a visit it has been changed out of all recognition with high ceilings a panoramic sea view and furnished to a very high standard At present, it is selling Sharps Atlantic and Doombar but more real ales are planned for the future. At present, it is not serving meals but again that is in the plans for the future.

be hoped that they can be bought by someone who wants to continue running them as pubs There have also been some management changes in recent weeks. New tenants at the Crooked Billet in Ryehill are Phil & Maggie from the Constable Arms in Sproatley. Whilst the Constable Arms’ new tenants are Nigel Morley and Sarah Johnson. The Rose and Crown in Hornsea has had another change of management by the name of Colleen Thorley who has signed a 5-year lease and we wish her every success in the venture Punch Taverns, I am informed, are interviewing for a manager for the Victoria at the moment, so hopefully I will have good new in the next issue. If you have any holderness pub news please contact me at: holdernesspubs@hull.camra.org.uk

9 I wonder if like me you are wondering why the name Captain Williams? Well it goes back to the original owner of the building, which at that time was a private house. Built in the 1890’s it was owned by Captain William Newman who was a seafaring captain and quite well known in the area. I’m not sure what happened in the intervening years but it was bought in the early 1970’s and converted in to a pub and named the Marine Bar it finally closed in 2012 and remained empty until the present owner Neil Giles bought it and has spent a lot of time and money on the building and deserves every success, They also have some accommodation in the form of four chalets with some more planned. Whilst it is nice to hear about a pub reopening it is concerning that pubs are been sold or going up for sale at an ever increasing rate, the latest ones to go up for sale in the Holderness area are the Alexandra in Hornsea, the Holderness in Patrington, and the Crown in Paull.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR In the last edition we featured a letter from Mike Caywood questioning why we are not highlighting prices of beers instead of ‘giving awards to pubs that take the drinker for a ride’. Well here are a couple of reponses to that letter:

Wetherspoon’s are a massive chain which has huge buying power when it comes to getting stock in allowing them to lower prices; and these prices are heavily subsidised by the huge profits they make from selling thousands of meals every day.

Dear Editor Firstly I must defend CAMRA on this one. It most certainly is not 'job done', we have come a long way but there is still plenty to do in defending our local pubs and the great real ales we now have and I don't know any active member who thinks this is the case. Secondly it is very unfair comparing local independent pubs to the likes of Wetherspoons and Samuel Smiths. To use your instance of Cottingham, most, if not all pubs in Cottingham are pub company owned and leased to independent traders, these pub companies then charge extortionate rents followed by overpriced barrelage fees, along with these charges,the tenant then needs to find money for staff, cleaning, general daily repairs, utility bills, business rates and much more, not to mention 20% VAT. The bigger companies get huge discounts from the breweries for the national barrelage they sell, yes they also have bills to pay but these are massive companies that no doubt are paid centrally. Your local licensee will also no doubt work 10-14 hour days seven days a week for very little pay. I for one am glad I can drink in a friendly local where I am a name and not just considered a £20 note. As for giving out awards, the price as well as many other factors are taken into consideration and presented to pubs that have served their community well. Long live the local. Jon Major

Sam Smith’s also own hundreds of pubs, many of which also sell food, but they make their own beer so don’t have the cost of buying it in.

and the other Dear Editor I agree that we should expect value for money, and yes, there are maybe some who try to take advantage, I’m afraid he is way off the mark when he quotes Wetherspoon’s and Sam Smith’s pubs as examples of what we should expect.

Mail Group - info@hull.camra.org.uk

What both these chains have in common is that their pubs are managed by people who are paid a wage. In sharp contrast, many of the pubs which charge higher prices, are run by individual landlords who either own the business or who are tied to paying a lease. These people cannot hope to compete with the big chains Mike mentions. I once ran a business selling bottled beers. In order to sell via the internet I had to try and compete with the ‘big boys’ and sell at similar prices to the online equivalent of Wetherpoon’s. These prices had to be reflected in store too. It didn’t work, I soon realised that they only way 13 I could make a living was to charge the kind of prices that the Mr Caywoods of this world wouldn’t pay, so I closed down the business and now we have no bottle shop in the area. If CAMRA ‘names and shames’ these landlords who are trying to make a living they too will close down their businesses and all we will be left with is the pub equivalents of Tesco and Asda! My advice to Mr Caywood is to enjoy a cheap Wetherpoon’s pint now and then as most of us do, but if he wants to have choice, variety, and to help keep pubs open, then every now and then he must get his hand in his pocket and show a bit of support for those hard pressed publicans who are struggling to survive. Patrick Gladstone Thanks to you both for these responses, if you have a view on this issue or others issues you wish to share, please send your comments to the editor at pubmirror@hull.camra.org.uk

@hullCAMRA


LOCALE SCHEME EXPLAINED CAMRA LocAle is an initiative which promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale. The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of ‘green’ issues. Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally brewed real ale… • Public houses as stocking local real ales can increase pub visits • Consumers who enjoy greater beer choice and diversity • Local brewers who gain from increased sales • The local economy because more money is spent and retained locally • The environment due to fewer ‘beer miles’ resulting in less road congestion and pollution • Tourism due to an increased sense of local identity and pride - let’s celebrate what makes our locality different.

14

Participating pubs are granted accreditation at the discretion of the local branch, Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA, and subject to the licensee agreeing that they will endeavour to ensure at least one locally brewed real ale, as defined by the local branch, is on sale at all times and that only real ale, as defined by CAMRA, can be promoted as a CAMRA LocAle.

We are proud to serve locally-brewed real ale

CAMRA accredited 2017

The Definition of Local: For the purpose of the Hull & East Yorkshire scheme pubs would have to stock a beer from either an East Yorkshire brewery or from a brewery within 25 miles of the pub. Real ales from regional and national breweries as well as from microbreweries can be regarded as “local”, if they are brewed within what the branch has deemed to be the local area. These breweries are considered to be our LocAle breweries: • • • • • • • • • • • • •

All Hallows, Goodmanham Atom, Hull Bridlington, Bridlington Bricknell, Hull Cathead, Hull Crystalbrew, Brough Dicks Brewery, Brough Gene Pool Brewery Great Newsome, South Frodingham Half Moon, Ellerton Old Mill, Snaith Wold Top, Wold Newton Yorkshire Brewing Co, Hull

If your local pub carries any of our breweries’ beer please contact our LocAle Officer Pete Mason, whose email address is on page 3 of this publication. Our LocAle pubs are listed on the below and opposite.

@hullCAMRA

MEMBERSHIP REPORT BY TONY GARRETT Real ale is the product of a natural process and is an artisan craft. Indeed, it is truly craft ale, result in a continuing living and developing product. People say that real ale is safe and we no longer have to campaign for it. However, as some breweries and pubs are keen to retain as long a shelf life as possible, the safety of the future of real ale is always questionable and the importance of continuing the campaign to keep quality real ale in the public consciousness will continue to be important. To keep this campaign as powerful as it has been in recent years it is important that the membership remains strong. If you have not joined the campaign so far, I encourage you to do so. If you want to be more active then get in touch. Contact details can be found on page 3 of this Pub Mirror. The traditional advantages of membership are:  Be a member of the most successful consumer organisation in Europe;  Be part of a social and active branch with many events throughout the year;  Be involved by nominating and selecting the pubs included in the Good Beer Guide;  Receive a monthly copy of the ‘What’s Brewing’ CAMRA newspaper, providing the latest news on CAMRA nationally and details of beer festivals and social events;  Receive a quarterly copy of the CAMRA magazine, ‘Beer,’ offering informative articles about many subjects related to beer and cider;  Receive a branch newsletter bi-monthly, updating you on all the local news and activities (Hull and East Yorkshire branch members only);  Receive discounts on the RRP of many CAMRA products including the best selling Good beer Guide;  Enjoy free or discounted entry to beer festivals;

16

However, there are other incentives to help you decide whether or not to join:  Increasing numbers of pubs nationally are offering discounts on real ale to CAMRA membership card holders, including a number in this area;  £20 of vouchers for real ale and real cider at Wetherspoons pubs (40 fifty pence vouchers);  Discounts from reputable national companies (see national website for the latest offers);  More information about real cider and where to find it; If you are not currently a member you can join CAMRA today by filling in the application form in this edition of Pub Mirror, use the dedicated membership forms, or sign up on-line. It’s only £5.50 extra to buy a joint membership so it would make sense to “make it a double!”

PUB MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO 100 Welcome to this special edition of Pub Mirror , number 100. We are proud as a branch to have been producing this named magazine from October 1977. Here is a brief outline of the original Pub Mirror, shown below:

The first Pub Mirror, the name was thought up by founder member Tim Bolton, was published in October 1977 and was, for a considerable period, issued monthly.

21 While the first two publications were subtitled “The Bulletin of the Hull Branch of CAMRA”, from issue No 3 it became the branch “newspaper”. It was produced in A4 format up to April 1986 before changing to the A5 layout familiar today. As there was no sponsorship or advertising in the paper Pub Mirror, between October 1977 and December 1981, it was completely selffinancing, as it is to this day. In 1982 with the change of editor the first advertisements started to appear. Between January 1985 and April 1987, Pub Mirror continued to be produced monthly, albeit with 6 different editors, including 3 in 1987 alone. Despite their best efforts only 13 issues were published between May 1987 and January 1992 with only 3 making it off the presses in the period 1989-1990 and none at all in 1991. New editors meant changes including: A general increase in advertisements and a (continued on next page)

Mail Group - info@hull.camra.org.uk

@hullCAMRA


PUB MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO PUB MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO 100100 (CONT) (continued from previous page) a number of new designs for the header. In May 1986 a change of format to the now familiar A5 layout and a gradual increase in size to 8 sides took place. New regular and one off articles appeared. Now on to this the “new” Pub Mirror, issued in January 1992 under the editorship of Alan Canvess. It retained its original name but numbering was restarted as no-one had a record of the last number used (although we can reveal that it was in fact No 123). That first edition comprised just 4 sides of A5 with a print run of 1500 copies, a copy of that first edition is reprinted in the middle pages of this edition. Alan was solely responsible for 50 editions between 1992 and 2002. He also assisted with at least three others following his resignation. Pub Mirror underwent a number of changes during the period 1995 – 2004 not least the

22

change of sub headings as follows February/March 1996 – Hull Branch (Inc. most of East Yorks) Free Newsletter April 1996 to September 1996 – Hull (and East Yorkshire) Branch Free Newsletter Oct 1996 – June 1997 “Alezine of the Hull and East Yorkshire Branch Of The Campaign For Real Ale” November/December 1997 - the now familiar “Free Magazine of The Hull and East Yorkshire Branch of CAMRA” title was adopted. Other changes during this period included: The first appearance in the June/July 1995 edition of the “Pubs With” section giving details of pubs that: • Agreed to sell a pint of beer for under £1.30 • Used oversized lined glasses, • Had quiet rooms with no music or TV •

and had no smoking rooms (not areas).

The 50th edition of this version of Pub Mirror was issued Feb/Mar 1996 (top page 22) (continued on page 27) Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO PUBPUB MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO 100 100 (CONT) (continued from page 22) Other changes seen were : • the use of a different colour for the cover sheet from the Oct/Nov 1996 edition onwards(bottom page 21) • an increase in circulation from 2000 to 4000 • a change to quarterly publication from 2001 While it is not possible to detail every single article in the newspaper the following are worthy of specific mention: “Blakey on the Buses” (remember the TV programme?) was a humorous account of the branch’s GBG survey trips that went on for 7 years. The author was long serving committee member John Heckford. The Plastic Pint award, humorously awarded by Pub and Brewery news columnist Martin Read for breweries carrying out alleged dubious practices. At the first ever Alewords award in 2001 (set up to recognise the quality of Yorkshire branch magazines) Pub Mirror was Highly Commended for its quality of content. A certificate marking

Mail Group - info@hull.camra.org.uk

the award was presented to the branch at the regional meeting in early 2002. Our 50th edition was produced summer 2002 (see page 22). Issue 51 saw another change in the Pub Mirror header (see page 22) as did Issue 54 (see above) From 2005 to 2014 the branch magazine underwent a number of changes. Not least of these was the editorship. In 2009 after three and a half years at the helm Stewart Campbell resigned to be replaced by Alan Carr, but not before Stewart and Alan Canvess had produced two more editions between them. In spring 2010 a new editor, Bernie Cawte, volunteered. With radical ideas for production and layout as well as plans for increasing the amount of advertising a new era in Pub Mirror history was born. The most immediately noticeable change was the introduction of full gloss pages and colour print (see left) (continued on next page)

MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO PUBPUB MIRROR HISTORY - FROM 1 TO 100 100 (CONT) (continued from previous page) First full colour print edition was Issue 74 (top left) The net effect of these changes was that the magazine grew from an average of 30 pages in 2004 to 44 in 2014 and 48 in 2016, circulation also increased to the current 5500. Certain articles were standard and as such continued, albeit with new and bolder layout and presentation. However, short series and one off articles populated the pages. These included: • Local Pubs – Current and historic information about a much loved locals • Beer and Cooking – exactly what it says • Follow the Tigers on the Amber Trail listing pubs in the GBG (and some not) near grounds Hull City would be visiting during the season While real cider had featured regularly in the branch’s activities it was not until 2008, when new cider liaison officer Dave Litten joined the branch that focus intensified. His regular Pub Mirror column, Inn Cider, gave updates on all things cider related. In 2014 Dave decided to scale back his involvement but nevertheless continues to submit reports and articles pending the appointment of a replacement. A new campaign, LocAle, promoting local breweries appeared for the first time in 2014. As the scheme has grown so has its prominence in Pub Mirror and it now regularly fills three pages. A further change in the front page layout can be seen from our last issue Pub Mirror 99 (left) Editorial Role of honour current magazine:

SOCIAL TRIPS BY STEVE ALLISON A Real Mystery tour

A Derby Day

February saw the much anticipated mystery trip and with a willing driver to play along, the trip custodians were treated to mystery and confusion straight from the off. After an interesting journey into West Yorkshire, we started the day at the Junction in Castleford which offered up 4 real ales including Stancill Stainless and American pale. Upon leaving, we then headed to the Spread Eagle at Darrington, a village just outside Castleford where we were treated to 3 real ales including Thwaites Wainwright's and Ossett Blonde. We then headed out to our next stop, the Anglers Retreat in Wintersett, a small 2 room pub in the countryside which offered up 2 real ales one of which was Stancill Barnsley Bitter. Our next stop was the village of Heath, quite literally on the outskirts of Wakefield, the exterior of the Kings Arms gave no indication of the size inside the pub though most of that can be put down to the large conservatory at the rear of the pub. At the bar we found 8 beers and 2 ciders including Rat Brewery White Rat and North Riding Cascade Ale. So followed a very short trip into town and the Magic Rock Wakefield, one of Wakefield's most popular bars. We soon discovered why with a choice of 6 real ales including Ainstey Flummoxed Farmer, Holdins Toffee Porter and Kelham Island Easy Rider. We then proceeded to the Alverthorpe WMC which raised an eyebrow or two, however, 6 beers including TimothyTaylor's Boltmaker, Horbury Sundown and Ossett Blonde. Finally our last port of call was the Graziers in Stanley, a 2 room pub with a modern decor, we enjoyed 4 real ales inc Abbeydale Moonshine and Sonic 43 Abolition Amber Ale, sadly it was time for home though the popularity was so, another mystery trip is in the offing....

Mail Group - info@hull.camra.org.uk

March came and on Mothers’ Day, the branch headed out for a day in Derby, the day didn’t start well as an accident outside of Derby meant delays on the road and a slightly later arrival than planned, upon arrival a group of us headed to our first port of call, the Flowerpot a deceptively large pub which offered 10 beers, including Blue Monkey Chocolate Guerilla, Hartington IPA, Highgate Vampire, Whim Ales Magic Mushroom Mild and Chocca Mocca Porter. We then headed to the 5 Lamps who offered up 14 real ales, amongst the offerings were, Bass, Oakham Green Devil, St Austell Proper Job, Everards Tiger, 5 Lamps and Chatsworth Gold. We then headed to the Olde Dolphin which offered 8 real ales including Timothy Taylor’s Landlord, Abbot Ale, Black Star Brewery Red Dwarf and Castle Rock Harvest Pale. We then headed to the Silk Mill, enjoying as we did 7 real ales and 4 ciders, those on offer included Dancing Duck Dark Drake and Ay Up,Bass, Welbeck Abbey Fruity Salad, Lilley’s mango cider and Gwynty Dragon Fiery Fox. Our next stop was the Derby Tap, a modern pub/bar which offers 10 beers, primarily from the Derby Brewing Company. Quick visits to both the Exeter Arms and Old Bell followed before we finished in the Brunswick, a stone’s throw away from the train station. Inside we found a traditional pub with multiple rooms and 15 beers at the bar, they included Brunswick Black Sabbath and White Feather, Five Points Railway Porter, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Tryst Brockville Pale. All in all a great day out was had by all, here’s looking forward to the next one.

PUBS PRESERVATION SOCIETY Planning and Permitted Development Rights (PDR) First of all the good news. On 28 March 2017 Parliament finally agreed that the planning regulations that allow pubs to be demolished or changed to a host of other uses without the need for planning permission was WRONG. They have, therefore, now declared that any development affecting a pub including demolition, change of use or significant alterations must have planning permission before going ahead. This is something that CAMRA have been campaigning for over the last few years and is obviously being hailed as a great success by the organisation. As ever with legislation it will take some time before the decision is passed into law and the actual change to the regulations is not expected until July this year. Naturally CAMRA and others were concerned that this could lead to a rash of developments under the current regulations before the 32 change came into effect. As a result CAMRA wrote to all the Pubcos, Co-op and New River Retail all of whom have been the main culprits in the devastation of our pub heritage asking them to abide by the spirit of the change immediately without waiting for the formal issue of the documents implementing the change. In a somewhat unprecedented spirit of good will all of them have agreed to do so. In a further, and equally gratifying, twist to the tale an amendment to the regulations was on issued April 27 removing the right to demolish a pub without the need for planning permission with effect from 23 May 2017. While these changes do not automatically mean that pubs are safe from development it does at least mean that local communities will now have the right to see and if necessary object to proposals affecting their local. Once again while this is good news the best way to ensure the future viability and safety of your local is by visiting and using it on a regular basis. So get on down the pub - You know it makes sense! Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

Assets of Community Value (ACV) There is good news and potentially bad news on the ACV front this month. The first piece of good news is obviously the change in the legislation detailed above which means that the all pubs now enjoy the protection from development previously only given to ACV designated ones. The second is that, after a 9 month wait, East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) has finally granted

ACV status to the Bear at South Cave (above). Regular readers of this column will recall that the delay was due to ERYC not being sure that the branch could actually nominate a property for the status. ERYC legal department finally concluded that the branch was eligible on 28 March and the decision to designate was made on the same day The potentially bad news is that following the changes to the legislation, again as detailed above, CAMRA HQ has decided that support for branches to be directly involved in nominations will cease or be severely curtailed once the changes are formally enacted. I say potentially bad because while the change to the regulations is welcome and removes one part of the reason for getting a pub designated there are other reasons which remain valid. The main one being that in the event of an ACV designated pub being put up for sale the local community have the right to submit an intention to bid for it while non ACV pubs can simply be disposed of without the local community ever being able to even express an interest in it. CAMRA HQ has declared that in future any Branch Website - www.hull.camra.org.uk


BY KEN SMITH Decisions on older applications

ACV nominations must come direct from local communities with only peripheral support from local branches.

1. White Horse, Howden – application to change use to a veterinary surgery (Approved)

We at the Hull branch consider this to be a backward step and as a result the issue is currently being debated by members and further reports will be included in Pub Mirror as and when the situation becomes clearer.

Planning Applications As ever there have been a number of new planning applications made and decisions on existing ones issued. The following is a brief summary of each: New Applications since PM 99 and their current status 1. Kingston Hotel, Trinity House Lane, Hull – application to alter the internal layout and refurbish the bar back (an important part of this listed building) (Approved and work completed) 2. 32 Bridgegate Howden – application to change the use from retail to a drinking establishment (Approved) 3. The Tiger North Newbald – application to carry out a number of improvements to the exterior with the intention of correcting a number of changes carried out without listed building consent and some cosmetic alterations to the interior (Pending consideration) 4.

COMMITMENT TO CASK On Wednesday 3rd May (prior to the monthly branch open meeting at the Lord Nelson) around 15 members made a slight detour to the Cross Keys. The purpose of the visit was to present the licensee, Rob Clark, with the branch’s Commitment to Cask award. The award is given by the branch to licensees who have shown a long term commitment to keeping and selling real ale. Rob certainly falls into the category as he has been doing it for over 15 years. The branch chair, Stewart Campbell, asked long time CAMRA member and pub regular Phil Birtles (who was also responsible for nominating the pub) to “do the honours”. During

the presentation Phil (left) made the point that on one of his earliest visits he was somewhat surprised when Rob took from him the pint that he was just about to enjoy, explaining that he (Rob) did not believe it to be up to standard. Phil then said that he was so impressed with this commitment to quality ale that he continued visiting the pub for over 15 years. On the night, branch members were able to enjoy the two ales continually on offer, Stones Bitter 4.1% (try getting that anywhere else in Hull) and Bradfield Farmers Blonde 4.0%. A third rotating guest is usually on at the weekends when the pub is at its busiest including Black Sheep Bitter, Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and Caledonian Deuchars IPA. In honour of the branch’s visit Rob added a third for all to enjoy Sharp’s Doom Bar, even though it was mid-week. This was a great start to the evening’s activities and sincere thanks and congratulations must be given to Rob and his staff on both the welcome received and more importantly the award itself. Long may he continue. Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

USEFUL INFORMATION REAL ALE V SMOOTH

What is Real Ale? Real Ale is a living beer. It continues to ferment and develop its full flavour in the cask. Real Ale is brewed from traditional ingredients, malt, hops, water and yeast matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the extraneous use of carbon dioxide or nitrogen via hand pumps. Real Ale is also called cask beer or cask conditioned.

THE SOCIAL SCENE BY CAROL JOHNSON

Around thirty members from Scarborough and Hull branches of CAMRA met on Saturday 29th April for a walk around the Old Town of Hull. We started out in the Admiral of The Humber for breakfast and to meet each other, it was the start of a fantastic day out. Firstly, most of the group walked to the Whalebone which is Hull’s CAMRA pub of the year, they have 7 hand pumps to choose from light and dark beers and people spent time getting to know each other. We all met up again at Ye Old Black Boy on the High Street which has several hand pumps and keeps a very decent pint, after another pint or two we all split up and with maps in hand we visited other pubs in the Old Town including the Lion and Key, Wm Hawks, the Sailmakers Arms, and Walters. On leaving the High Street we went down little

36 alley ways to Ye Olde White Harte (below)

where we all piled inside and some sat outside in a very cosy court yard area with excellent beers.

Bricks. Some went straight to the Hop and Vine on Albion Street a cosy friendly basement pub where we all met again to swap stories and give speeches and have a final pint or two before heading for trains and buses home. I have had a text from Gillian (Secretary of Scarborough Branch) to say everyone enjoyed the day and are still talking about it so thanks to all who made it such a great day out. Social trips in the planning Great Newsome is having its 10th anniversary on 17th June 2017 and we are running a trip to support and have a fun day out and then visit a couple of pubs on the way home make yourself known if you want to be included on the trip? We are repeating ‘Pub Olympics’ again at the City Hotel Alfred Gelder Street on Thursday 27th July for Dove House Hospice Charity so if you like to play pool, darts crib, dominoes, skittles and enjoy a quiz this is the place to be for a fun night out. The pub is hoping to get a team together and prizes will be awarded at the end of the evenings competitions. We are hoping to go for a walk about to visit the real ale pubs in East Hull ion 23rd September. Are you interested in aany of the above then please contact us at: socialsecretary@hull.camra.org.uk 26/05/2017

THE DRAM SHOP - A HISTORY BY JON MAJOR Dram Shop, this beautiful grade II listed building was, until 1960, the retail department of Henry Wilson & Son Ltd., wine and spirit merchants, I have heard from many people, who are old enough to remember still refer to it as Wilson’s Corner.

The premises on the corner of Savile Street and George Street had been occupied by a spirit merchant, Richard Gelson, from at least 1831. Henry Wilson bought Gelson’s business in 1849 after Gelson had succumbed to a cholera outbreak in that year. Henry sat on the Hull Town Council for three years at the same time as other businessmen such as Henry Blundel. However, Wilson found his commercial interests suffered as a result and he did not seek another term as councillor.

etc. Before 1877 60 & 61 Savile Street had housed the wholesale and retail departments and the offices and cellars, this would no doubt account for the huge amount of cellar space the pub currently boasts. Henry Wilson was also a blender of both Scotch and Irish whiskies and almost two thirds of the ground floor was used to sell the whiskies and known locally as the Dram Shop, which has been its official name since the end of the Second World War. The present licensees have had many years in the licensed trade and are fully convinced it will do well selling real ales and ciders. They now have up to six real ales which will include two permanent ones Theakston's Lightfoot and Wells Bombardier, along with guests from both national and local breweries and local real ciders. With regular live music on a weekend and regular planned events during the week I'm sure there will be something for everyone 43 to enjoy.

YORKSHIRE PUB WALKS

AVAILABLE NOW IN THE CAMRA SHOP £9.99 (MEMBERS PRICE £7.99)

The firm expanded and by 1877 Wilson had acquired the adjacent premises in Savile Street when he rebuilt them as offices and cellars. The new building, Savile House, was three stories high, it contained four tasting cellars, sample room, spirit bottling department, spirit stores,

THE FIRST OF SIX - DRIFFIELD AND BEYOND The survey months for Good Beer Guide (GBG) entries have arrived. The second weekend in the month we head out to visit nominated pubs within our branch area. Today we are in Driffield,Bempton,Bridlington and North Frodingham. We set off at 12.30 and after picking up along the way we are soon at Driffield town centre. The coach is parked up and similar size groups head of in different directions to the three pubs nominated, Butchers Dog, Mariners & Spread Eagle. At the Butcher's Dog we have a choice of Darkheart Mild from Yorkshire Heart, North Ridings Single Hop American Pale Ale 'Chinook' ,Great Newsome’s The Chairman and Isaac Poad no.86 Golden Ale. On the cider board 8 ciders from Farmer Jim's and 3 locally produced ciders from Colemans cider company at Rudston Prava/Kilham. A very good varied selection you have to say. A micro pub with no TV or piped music, just good old conversation.. 44 yes people talking to each other without having to use a mobile phone to do it. Sadly the conversation was about Hull City’s relegation from the Premier League on the day.

We went onwards to the Mariners Arms (above) a traditional pub off the main route through Driffield near to the cattle market car park. The licensee, Gary Taylor has been the longest serving tenant of any pub in Driffield and of the Mariners Arms. On 30th May 2017 Gary will have chalked up 30 years of service to the community. Not to be left out his good lady will have been the oldest, I think that is what she told me, or was it longest serving landlady? Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

on 26th September this year. A remarkable feat, As we had popped in for a beer or two we had the choice of Banks's Sunbeam, Jennings Bitter and Ringwood's Razorback/Best Bitter. Nicely up the road from here, the Spread Eagle has its own house beer brewed by Wold Top cleverly named Wold Top Spurs. Bob, the licensee, is a supporter of a club in North London which has a similar sounding name to this, so was born Bob's house beer. To do it justice a pint was emptied rather than a half, very nice indeed. The Griffin IPA 4.7% brewed by Reedley Hallows micro brewery in Burnley, will be a beer tickers delight in this area. Camerons Strongarm, Acorn's Summer Pale and as the Tour De Yorkshire paid a visit to Driffield, Wold Tops Helo Velo made up the beer choices.The mid-day relegation game was in full swing being shown on one TV and the F1 race on the other, it was not looking good for the Tigers. The scheduled meeting time has arrived so all aboard and we commenced with the first of the bottled beer raffle as we head out to Bridlington. As the three pubs are in close proximity we repeat the same tactics as Driffield, a three pronged offensive. Dad's Army was filmed around here so it's only apt it's the way to go. The Pack Horse is busy with serving the Sunday carvery and if time permitted some would have sat down for it as it smelled and looked very nice. We settled for the beer instead, Pack Horse Gold from Wold Top,a 4.4% golden ale. Yorkshire Farmer from Bradfield brewery was ordered next followed by Acorns Heart of Oak and lastly The Rev. James from Brains of Cardiff. We bid farewell to Rob and his team but not before he informed us the brewery is very close to starting up production once again after the relocation of the brewery from the Telegraph pub to its new premises. Black Lion or is it the Royal Oak of Walmington- on- Sea we march on into? We embark on ordering half each of St Austell's Branch Website - www.hull.camra.org.uk


BY MARK BAINTON Tribute and Greene King Morland Old Speckled Hen from the barman as we take in the surroundings. We were surprised when he told us most of the cast and crew from Dad's Army weren't drinkers! They drank coloured water in the film. We thank him for his time and our last assault in Dad's Army town is the 'sister' pub, which is the Board Inn. The Board Inn has had some major investment and refurbishment done to it. As you enter from the street you think you have stepped back in time,back to the Regency days of old. Dark panelled walls, wooden floors, snug rooms with oak beams and the creative use of lighting casting shadows towards corners of the room...."is someone sat there?" There is enough light around the bar so you can see which beer to order. I plumbed for the Titanic Plum Porter to start (pun intended) followed by Purple Moose brewery from Porthmadog, Dark Side of the Moose, a nice dark chestnut brown lightly roasted with a smell of toffee/treacle to it. It won silver at the 2015 CAMRA winter beer festival. Fullers London Pride slipped down easily & the others Adnams Ghost Ship, Tetley Bitter and Tetley Mild (ran out) are the regular beers which completed the selection on the bar. Regrettably we had to leave Dad's Army land behind and continue to Bempton. The White Horse with its amazing blue roof tiles was easy to find on the corner of Cliff Lane which leads to the RSPB Bempton Cliffs bird sanctuary. We disembark the coach and are greeted with Wold Top beers and a friendly smile from all the bar staff. Halves all round Wold Gold, Headland Red and Anglers Reward are presented to us at the bar. Against the Grain also was on but not available on hand pull. We have certainly been treated to a lot of Yorkshire ales today, must be something to do with the Tour of Yorkshire cycle race which was in the area recently. With glasses empty back on the coach it is. We are going back to Bridlington! We drop into the Marine Bar on the North Marine Drive. Regular beers are John Smiths Cask and

Mail Group - info@hull.camra.org.uk

Timothy Taylor Landlord and a beer from Wold Top, Wold Top Bitter. The two guest ales Wells Bombardier and Great Newsome’s Holderness Dark made up the rest of the choices. They now have guest ciders on hand pull; today it was from Colemans Cider Company. This pub has won many CAMRA awards and is a regular in the guide; certificates depicting this are hung above the bar for all to see. Rounding up the group to board the coach so we can head to our last pub is a challenge. The phrase" just popping to the loo" is a very common one at this stage of the trip. I am always asking "has anybody seen so and so" when we are on the coach about to set off the reply is normally "yep, gone to the loo!"

45 The Blue Post at North Frodingham (above) was a first time for some of the party and everyone really enjoyed the visit. The beauty of survey trips is the advantage of a visit to a pub you may never knew existed and opportunities to return at your own leisure. Their beers available were Northallerton Gun Dog a hoppy bitter with a full flavour at 3.8% nice taste and easy to drink. Acorns Zeus IPA tested people's ability at 5%, a hoppy little number and finally John Smiths Cask traditional bitter. We bid farewell to the Blue Post and head back to Hull. We would like to thank all the licensees and their staff for such a friendly warm welcome and to Acklam coaches for taking us there and back safely. Of couse having a great bunch of keen and enthusiastic real ale drinkers who attended the trip really helped. The next trip is on the 11th June along the A63 corridor.

a city of culture by jon major Kingston upon Hull has now held the mantle as City of Culture for the past 5 months. The first half of the year has seen numerous events and exhibitions taking place, with thousands of extra visitors to the city. I sincerely hope our local businesses, in particular our pubs, have taken advantage of this and have so far had a bumper 2017. Two local breweries that are helping the ale culture along are Yorkshire Brewing Co. and Great Newsome who are in collaboration with each other and brewing an ale for the City of Culture theme. The first one was 'Breeze' and was launched in The Minerva earlier in the year. The second ale is yet to be released but will be along the lines of 'Roots and Routes' this seasons city of culture theme. Watch the press or Hull CAMRA website for details. One pub that has embraced the City of Culture experience is Ye Olde White Harte a pub that is featured in this years Good Beer Guide. Mike Woollas, who has been the landlord for

8 years said the footfall has increased greatly with visitors wanting to see this great historic pub which is linked to the start of the English Civil War. It was built as a house in the early 1600's and it is alleged that John Hotham, the governor of Hull plotted against King Charles I in a room upstairs now known as 'The Plotting Room'. It became a pub in the late 1700's and was featured in the extended sellout show 'The Hypocrite' which was staged at Hull Truck and starred Caroline Quentin and Mark Addy, who along with the cast of the Royal Shakespeare Company frequented the pub on several occasions trying the good selection of real ales on offer, in particular the best seller and regular ale 'Hotham Ale'. Recently, on St. George's Day it played host to The Earl of Manchester's Regiment of Foote, part of the Sealed Knot, the UK's largest reenactment group after they celebrated 375 years to the day when Hull, led by John Hotham turned away King Charles I at the Beverley Gate.
