Welcome Drinks at Ye Olde Black Boy High Street HU1 1PS


This is the oldest pub in Hull, dating back to around 1720. The premises were originally used by a tobacco merchant who traded from the River Hull; the intriguing name reputedly comes from the ‘black boy’–the pipe-smoking American Indian which was adopted as a symbol by the tobacco trade. The pub is alleged to have been frequented by slavery abolitionist and champion of the partially sighted William Wilberforce. The building was later occupied by a wine merchant
