hull pubs report by mark spight It has been a real quarter of change for several of Hull’s pubs with licensee changes including: Michael Greatrex taking over and refurbishing Old English Gentleman, Shaun Carpenter returning to Silver Cod and Tommy Boyle returning to St George’s Hotel. Another change took place at Muttley’s where Mike & Sharon Mowforth have moved on to pastures new after a great year at the pub; they have been replaced by Julie Arnold. Sadly it appears that they have taken cask ale with them as there are no plans to reintroduce it at present. I would like to take this welcome Gary Rowan and his partner Jenny whom have taken on the former Humber St Andrews social club. The club has had a makeover and is now known as William Gemmell. Knowing Gary’s passion for real ale one of the did was to introduce three hand pumps to the bar which is fantastic news! Cask ale has also made a welcome return to Oscars Bar in the form of four hand pumps. Early signs are very positive with local breweries particularly well supported. Two pubs have also have had changes of names as Lyrics is now known as Telstar and

Star & Garter is now known simply as The Star. Whilst place at Lambwath and Wawne Ferry. I also have news of the openings of new bars in the city centre. These are Furley & co which is a very welcome addition to the old town real ale circuit as it offers a great range of cask and craft beers. Early feedback is very positive and we wish all involved the best of luck for their future. We also have Silvers in the old town which is proving popular and more recently Bourbon Craft in Paragon Square although the latter is yet to offer real ale. If you ask introduce our favourite tipple... Let’s keep our collective the owners of both of these new bars. Sadly I also have to report a closure as Swiss Cottage (formerly Ganstead Hotel) recently closed its doors for wish former licensee Ryan Whitehead the best of luck as he moves on to his latest venture at the New Inn (Hornsea). Another change comes at Lion & Key....Not with the pub you will be pleased to hear, however licensee Alan Murphy has now started brewing

Mail Group - hullcamra@hullcamra.org.uk

his own beers at his new microbrewery on High Street. The brewery is operating under the name Cathead Brewery and beers can be seen regularly at the bars of Alan’s pubs. Early signs are very positive with the beers the range myself I can see why!

with some very good news as the Whalebone’s historic 7 illuminated M&R Ales has been lovingly restored to a high standard by Sign Services following an appeal in the local press by licensee Jamie Reading. This is an excellent piece of news as the sign became an iconic feature introduced by the late Alex Craig after he opened the pub as a free house in 2002. I would like to say a big well done to all involved in the say fond farewells to the pubs former owner and Alex’s Widow Tina as she makes Mark Spight hullpubs@hullcamra.org.uk

pubs preservation society by ken smith Assets of Community Value This topic has been taking up a great deal of my time of late, but not without some measure of success. Since the publication of the last issue of Pub Mirror there have been an additional three pubs in the branch area that have been designated as ACVs. These are • The George & Dragon, Aldbrough • The Rising Sun, Mizzen Road, Beverley Road, Hull • The St John’s Hotel, Queens Road, Hull While none of these pubs are currently under threat it is nevertheless good to know level of protection that ACV designation conveys. In respect of these successes I would like to place on record my appreciation of all those people who took the time to write to or e–mail the relevant local authority in support of the nominations. I am well aware that without that support the decisions could easily have been different. it’s worth giving a mention to the Thorngumbald Steering Group, ably led by Lynn Sterling from the village, which is trying to save the Royal Mail from demolition. Despite the East Riding of Yorkshire Council twice refusing to designate it as an ACV they are pressing ahead with their campaign and I’m sure would welcome any and all support

in their efforts. Lynn can be contacted at lynnandrobert@ gmail.com The Hull Local Plan First of all what is The Local Plan? The Local Plan is the document that every council responsible for dealing with planning applications must produce. It has two parts. The actual plans show the areas where the council think the most appropriate locations for things like housing, industry and shopping and leisure facilities are within their overall area. The other part contains the written policies that specify the exact criteria against which a planning application is assessed. So despite a common belief that when a planning department receives a whim whether to approve or refuse it, this is in fact far from the truth. Why am I bothering to tell you this? Well, the government has stated very clearly that local plans must include a policy to help safeguard local facilities and in doing so it public houses as being “local facilities”. Despite this the Hull City Council’s draft Local Plan, for which they consultation, completely failed to identify pubs in the relevant policy. As Pubs Protection written comments and attended a public forum where I pointed out that by failing to include pubs in the policy they

Mail Group - hullcamra@hullcamra.org.uk

appear to be in breach of the government’s requirements on this matter. As well as pointing out their omission I also provided them with a copy of a generic policy prepared by CAMRA with the suggestion that it could be document. I also gave them evidence that The East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) worded policies in their plan to help safeguard the future of public houses. Those safeguards include having the developer of any site classed as a local facility (including pubs) prove that it not viable, has been on the market as a period of time and that the loss of the facility would not be detrimental to the community it served. 13 At the Hull forum I was told that the situation in the East Riding is different to that in Hull but I pointed out that the ERYC area includes quite a few sizeable towns where the policy must be applied with equal weight to proposals for any village or rural pub. I was promised that my comments would be considered. Typically, and understandably given the complex nature of this process, feedback on my and everyone else’s’ comments will not be given until April 2016 when the planners will either amend the policy to take account of our concerns or give an explanation why the policy has not been changed. Naturally I will keep you informed in future editions of Pub Mirror.

what no fosters? Like a lot of people i have grown up with the continued battle to keep real ale alive and pubs around to supply that beer. Along with Red Barrel and Double Diamond taking up he advertising space on TV, ‘Australia’s word for lager,’ Fosters is another of those adverts that took over our TV viewing. Being of an open mind I thought I would see what the real stuff was like last time I went to Oz in 2006. But none was to be found. So when Angela and I decided to go back to visit my friends Julie and David, who happen to live near Melbourne, the home of Fosters, I thought I would try again. Things looked good when early on we found this pub, unfortunately when we

14

went inside no sign of any. A few days later we went in to a local ‘bottle shop’ in Victoria, again no sign of Fosters. The assistant said no one drinks Fosters lager in Oz anymore.

It has been overtaken by Carlton beers, which are more like our types of beer, brown

bitter, IPA’s and even stouts. We decided to see what other our trip, which included New Zealand, The Cook Islands, USA and Iceland so here are a few bars and breweries we found. Being in the Mornington Peninsular part of Victoria it is mainly known for its wineries found this one pictured below.

They brew 6 regular beers all which were of a very high standard and the bar is part of a booze bus tour, which due to other commitments we were unable to partake in. Maybe next time we are in Oz.

We went in their spring time which meant even though the temperature was around 22C they still had the indoor gas heaters on, which we had to ask to be turned down as we were so warm. Below is the bar with their full range of ales, quite impressive

Another brewery we found on the outskirts of Auckland at Browns Bay was the Deep Creek Brewery again a good wide range of craft beers,

A day in Melbourne itself even failed to supply the long lost sight of a Fosters, but maybe that was not such a bad thing really! Onwards from Australia took us to see my daughter and boyfriend who live in Auckland, New Zealand. Lucky for me they both like real ales so at least they knew where to look. There are quite a few bars that look more ‘British’ then they appeared to be in Oz, this one Galbraiths was one of our favorites and apparently the only real ale brewery in Auckland.

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.

locally brewed real ale… • Public houses as stocking local real ales can increase pub visits • 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.

social event report by steve allison Saturday 14th November saw eleven Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA members venturing south to support our neighbouring branch at the 2nd Grimsby Beer Festival. Real ale does not have a area a detail which Grimsby CAMRA are trying to rectify by promoting events such as this. Despite being on a small scale, 24 beers and 4 ciders, we had a fantastic time with our Grimsby cohorts. After four hours sampling the predominantly local beers at the festival we chose to get a breath of fresh rain and visited a couple of local pubs starting with the Hope & Anchor. The three beers on offer were reduced to only one as one ran out and another was being changed but the Wells Bombardier available was on good form. Then it was onto one of the strangest venues I have been to, The Barge, which is exactly that, a former working barge now a licensed bar sited in a dry dock. Here we were treated to Wychwood Hobgoblin and Wells Bombardier and some very tasty food.

With the bus station a handful of metres away and the rain falling steadily we decided to head homeward but this wasn’t the end of the day’s

festivities with an impromptu but necessary comfort break in Barton. Here visits were made to the GBG listed George Inn, where the beer quality was disappointing, and the Huntsman before we headed back to Hull. Travelling by bus meant we were able to make use of Stagecoach’s East Midland Day Out ticket that gives unlimited travel on Stagecoach services in Hull and throughout Lincolnshire all for a very reasonable £8.50 and which provided us with despite the autumnal weather.

On Saturday 28th November, 14 hearty souls braved wintery friends in the Scarborough Bridlington. Meeting in the Telegraph, a former branch Pub of the Farmers Blonde, Slaters Top Totty and Theakstons Old Peculier. Together with 6 Scarborough members we then headed to the Old Ship Inn, which offered Thwaites Wainwright, Morlands (Greene King) Old Speckled Hen Fullers London Pride. After a comfortable 45 minutes it was on up the High Street where visits were made to Queens Hotel, offering Wold Top Wold Gold, and the Black Lion with Old Speckled Hen. The façade

Mail Group - hullcamra@hullcamra.org.uk

of the Black Lion remains as took place with the pub in disguise as the Royal Oak, Walmington-on-Sea. Across the road in the Market Place is the newly re-opened and refurbished Packhorse Inn where we were served Wold Top Anglers Reward and Brains Reverend James. From here we braved the elements to walk up the road to take a bus to the other side of Bridlington and a visit to the Marine Bar, proclaiming to be ‘Bridlington’s Best Pub’. For our delectation and in discount we chose from John Smith’s Cask, Wold Top Bitter, Taylor’s Landlord, Well’s Bombardier Gold and Black 21 Pearl along with Weston’s Old Rosie cider. After a brisk but bracing walk down the promenade we were ready for another drink and there were no complaints about the choice on offer in the Prior John with Partners Stout and About proving very popular. Before boarding our train back to Hull we had time for a Hotel with its range of Wold Top beers plus Wychwood Hobgoblin. A great day out was had by all planned which included an invitation to Scarborough in the New Year. Hopefully the weather will be more clement than it was in Bridlington.

WRITING A BOOK ABOUT A UNIQUE PUB In July 2015, the Junction pub in Castleford now widely known as the ‘home of beers from the wood’ celebrated its stewardship of Maureen Shaw and Neil Midgley, becoming nationally revered as the of wood casks in the beer industry. From early 2014 the pub has served an ever changing range of guest beers from a multitude of brewers only from its own wooden casks, uniquely the only pub in the country and probably the world to do so.

the hospitality and alcoholic beverage industry specializing in the service and knowledge of beer) got me under way. She advised me to use plenty of quotes from people to give the personal touch. And that was where the process began. I visited the pub many times during the next few months (as if I needed any excuse) to talk to as many locals as I could. I also interviewed Master Cooper, Alastair Simms and several of the brewers who provide the beer most notably Mike Hiscock from Elland Brewery.(below0

Chairman of the West Riding branch of the Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood, Ian Cole; and from Bill English from the SPBW National Executive Committee. Not happy with that I asked renowned beer writer and editor of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, Roger Protz to write a foreword for me knowing that he had visited the pub on a couple of notable occasions. He agreed and by this point I had a vast amount of information. However, by early September I still had no idea how I was going to bring everything together. The only thing was to start writing. Suddenly the light went on and all the chapters began to fall into place. With reality level the next step was

Unfortunately, the brewer who

In March of this year I decided that, having previously written many articles for CAMRA magazines, I would attempt to write something rather longer which turned out to be a book about my favourite pub. With the blessing of Maureen and Neil I began to think about how to write it. It was not going to be a straight narrative but something based around topics. A chance meeting in beer sommelier (a trained professional who works in

of “beer from the wood”, Simon Bolderson (to whom the book is dedicated) from Ridgeside Brewery in Leeds died last year but his wife Sally kindly came to my rescue and valuably provided key information. Local broadcaster and writer Ian Clayton not only provided important advice but also supplied a foreword, details of the local beer scene in Castleford prior to the Junction reopening, an anecdote and much more. I also obtained contributions from the Chairman of CAMRA, Albert Bradbury; the

funding. Friends Chris Peat and Rich Jones together with the plot thickened! I approached a number of printers for quotes based on around 80 pages and although not the cheapest, but by far the most helpful, I decided Brothers in Featherstone as recommended by Ian Clayton. They advised that the maximum number of pages for assembling by the cheapest method was around 100 so that was now my target. No one has as many photographs connected with the Junction continued on next page

Branch Website - www.hullcamra.org.uk


FROM JUNK TO JUCTION BY DAVID LITTEN as me and with nothing particular in mind became most relevant. Together with others supplied by Maureen and helpful friends (particularly of the early days), the number of pages grew to around 130 pages. With serious editing I decided to limit the number of photographs to 50 of the best and the target size reduced dramatically. Next up was the proof reading. I had plenty of offers and accepted them all, with perhaps the most careful of the scrutinizers being Richard Coldwell and John Grant Gibson. Meanwhile funding became an issue. Maureen and Neil had selected the Alzheimer’s Society as their chosen charity. Generous friends, breweries and businesses all chipped in and the result was that these contributions almost fully covered the cost of printing enabling most of the sales to go straight to our charity. Good on you folks. Much appreciated. Several proof copies came and went with many changes and even after the last one I still took the risk of making 30 more changes without any outside assistance. With this burden on my mind plans for the launch had to be made. We don’t do things by halves when it comes to the Junction and this was to be no exception. I arranged with Mike at Elland brewery to organize a special beer with a book related name –

Codex. Neil sorted out some special rare beers aged in the wood from Cheshire Brewhouse (Govinda) and Kirkstall Brewery (Herzblut).

I asked Maureen not to get sandwiches in but to prepare her pièce de résistance – Cas Caviar (if you don’t know what that is, purchase the book or call in at the pub). Noted beer writer Barrie Pepper and local broadcaster Ian Clayton agreed to say something and Rich Jones offered to lead the renditions of the pub anthems accompanied by glorious Colin Williams on the piano.

60 and 80 happy souls in attendance. We drank the beers, made the speeches, sang the songs and ate the snap. Most importantly, quite a few books were sold in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society. In closing, considering that I have never written at such length before, I would like to thank Maureen and Neil for trusting me to write about them. A special partnership providing us with the most unique pub for special beer, while at the same time creating a fabulous place for the many locals summed up by one of their number as “the heart and soul of the community. The Junction auntie's front room and all your family are there” and by another as “a pub with soul. A 25 Real Pub for Real People.”

And so to the evening of 26th November 2015. Maureen and Neil had been donated a display case for the pub put it to good use setting out my wares. The lighting inside even worked. I could not have planned it better. Friends, brewers and supporters from CAMRA and SPBW came from all over Yorkshire to add their support to that of the locals – it was unbelievable – Bradford, Doncaster, Halifax, Keighley, Leeds, Selby,

East Ridings Magnificent Seven????? Well this is the last trip of the year for the GBG 2017 surveys. This survey took place on October 11th.

at Dunswell where we start our day. Just situated out of Hull on the main road to Beverley (A1174) this pub with its nautical theme has a welcoming feel to it as soon as you step inside. With a separate area to dine in, drink at the bar or even take a wander out into the spacious garden area for a sit down you are made more than welcome by the hosts. On the bar we had two LocAle beers from Great Newsome their Frothingham Best and Sleck Dust and Kimberley Bitter from Hardys & Hansons (Greene 26 King). If you end up having one too many you can always get a room for the night In the the pub, (see their website for details).

Sadly time catches up and Mariners on the corner of Eastgate and Dunns Lane was our next pub. A traditional ‘back street’ boozer is the Mariners. Marstons are the owners so beer comes from their catalogue. Today on offer; Ringwood’s Best Bitter, Banks’ Sunbeam and a seasonal Botanicale some expected to be a dark beer available but sadly it wasn’t. Our last visit we got a challenge from our partially sighted member Cliff to a game of darts, no he didn’t win as the marker kept informing him of the wrong score twice. It was all game of pool was hinted at but nothing came of that.

what pub update For a number of years, people have been asking why CAMRA as the UK’s largest consumer organisation doesn’t have its own online pub guide. Well now it does. You can use whatpub.com to search for pubs across the UK and then look up opening times, descriptions, facilities and of course details of the real ale and cider on offer as well as seeing photos and maps. Over 2.8 million different people have visited WhatPub since it went live in September 2013 and by early April 2015 over 11,000 different people were visiting it every day.

WhatPub has in a short period become established as the best online pub guide, and that is largely down to the quality of the information, which is modelled on the information in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. WhatPub is therefore clearly dependent upon the pub information being complete and accurate.

your updated pub details by email to the member in the relevant branch who keeps WhatPub up to date. Please check WhatPub to see if the pubs near where you live are up to date, and if they are not, please send an update to your local branch. Similarly you can send updates when you are on holiday.

The primary responsibility for updating WhatPub lies with branches, but all members and customers can help. If and when you use WhatPub (members can login using your membership number and password) then you will see at the top of each pub entry a Submit Updates button. This brings up an online form, which when submitted sends

CAMRA members can also assist in the selection of pubs for the Good Beer Guide by scoring the quality of the beer This information is used to help choose the pubs the branch visits on our survey trips throughout the summer and autumn. Becoming an active CAMRA member has never been so easy.

40 years of hull of hull & east yorkshire camra Introduction It was in July 1996, on the branch’s 21st anniversary that the regional director agreed change the name of the branch from “The Hull Branch” to “The Hull & East Yorkshire Branch”. during this period was the resignation, in March 2002, of founder committee member Tim Bolton. Tim had served on the committee in various posts for 29 years by the time of his resignation and been involved events, not least the attempt to buy Nellies in 1975. Branch Matters From 1996 only pubs that met

Using lined oversized glasses d. Quality of Beer e. Value for money – based on a cost per strength ratio to be determined In 2001 the branch, set up a beer tasting panel to provide tasting notes for beers included in the GBG and the brochures provided for local beer festivals.

Campaigning The main thrust for the branch’s campaigning efforts centred on the cost of beer and the effects of duty on that cost. In order to highlight the former the branch managed to persuade a number of pubs to per pint for a period of two months. It was this which led to the “Pubs With” section in Pub Mirror. As part of the national campaign to highlight the difference in beer duty between England and France two local breweries, Old Mill and Hull Brewery, agreed to allow their beer to be sold at 26p off the normal selling price. The promotion, which took place at Ye Old Black Boy, High Street, Hull featured a special “Axe the Tax” social to which all the local MPs and the local press were invited. There is no record of which, if any, MPs actually attended. Pub Preservation With the arrival on the committee in 1995 of new (PPO) Lynne Glazzard the protect pubs. At the time the Hull City Council were revising the local plan (the policy document that determines how planning applications will

Part three, 1995-2004 by ken smith be dealt with), Unfortunately her attempts to persuade them to include pub friendly policies in it proved fruitless. The Hull Pubs Group, set up to survey pubs for inclusion in the Yorkshire Regional Guide of Pubs with Historic Interiors, also used the details it collected to update the listed buildings list, either by adding new pubs to it or to amend existing descriptions. There were some successes and not only were a number of pubs listed but some alterations to pubs were reversed. In 1995 and 1996 respectively two Hull pubs, The Oberon, Queen Street and The Golden Ball, Air Street came under threat for different reasons. Sadly despite the best efforts of the branch to save them while the Golden Ball is a brick wall. The other local loss was The New Holderness Inn, 22 Witham. The interior of this pub was considered so important that the council issued a Building Preservation Notice on it and the branch forming a consortium to buy it. Despite these the interior was completely rmoved and the building turned into a night club, Jack rabbit Slims. Beer Festivals

the branch was able to buy a computer. The branch’s 21st anniversary, in 1996, was marked with a themed festival celebrating Yorkshire independent breweries. The 1997 festival almost didn’t happen as The New Clarence was unavailable but it was eventually staged in December that year.

The Pub of The Year award underwent two changes during

The next big change for the festival was the move to the Mortimer Suite at the City Hall, a location that was to host the event for a total of nine consecutive years. The extra space afforded by these new surroundings led to a number of changes including:

birthday party was held at The Haworth Arms.

1. A complete smoking ban 2. A membership stand 3. A pub and beer related a quiz 4. Hot food

An idea dubbed “Entertrainment” saw the branch run two bars on Arriva trains Hull – Scarborough line in August and September 2001 but due to lack of support plans for future ones were abandoned.

5. Live entertainment Awards The Pub Mirror award was initiated in 1997 and presented to landlords and landladies who showed a “Continuing commitment to real ale”. Winners were nominated by branch members and the award continued for ten years

Yet another idea for social outings was the CAMRAmble. The idea was simple, travel to a start point by public transport, walk to a pub, have a drink, walk to another pub have a drink, walk (you get the idea).

useful information real ale v smooth What is Real Ale? Real Ale is a living beer. It continues to ferment

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.

Smooth beers are brewed in much the same way as real ale but eventually the natural yeast is killed and processed to give longer shelf life.

chairman’s reflections by stewart campbell

I am writing this column after what has been a traumatic couple of months personally so can I begin by thanking all those who have passed on their condolences and best wishes following the death of my partner Janet in October, it was much appreciated. The last couple of months have seen a busy branch social agenda thanks to the branch social secretary, Steve Allison, with visits to Keighley & Worth Valley

beer festival, Grimsby beer festival, Bridlington and York. It was good to meet up with our neighbouring branches at Grimsby and with Scarborough CAMRA when visiting Bridlington. Any members who fancy a couple of hours visiting good pubs, drinking great beer and having in future. The branch celebrated the 40th anniversary of the formation of the branch with a beer festival in Holy Trinity Church as part of their food festival in October. Thanks to all those who attended so please make a note in your diary of next years Hull Real Ale & Cider Festival to be held in Holy Trinity from 14-16 April 2016.

Locally the number of pubs closing and coming under threat of re-development has increased to a worrying degree. The branch, through Ken Smith, are monitoring these cases and making representation to both Hull City and East Riding of Yorkshire Councils but in order to survive and thrive pubs need the most basic level of support, customers. So please remember a pub is or lose it.
