As noted below, The Lion and Key is in common ownership with Walters & Wm. Hawkes just down the street and, if you visit more than one, you'll notice the similarities. This one is a long-established pub and feels like it, with dark bare boards and copious decorations (old photos, brewery enamels, pump clips, as well as "stuff"). Two adjoining rooms, with the bar in the back room and this shows the primary focus of the group: 16 pumps (a few turned) offered 3 ciders along with ale from far & wide (2 from Battlefields in Nuneaton, one from Long Man in East Sussex, for example), as well as Tetleys Cask for the more, aah, conservative drinker. The only taps I could discern offered Stowford Press and "Blond".

Food is available lunchtime & evening. I missed that, but was offered home-made crisps - I don't suppose everyone gets that, but I was impressed. I also noticed a couple of cakes on the bar (something for everyone here!).

Probably my favourite of the 3 in the group and I'd recommend The Lion and Key to anyone seeking good ale in Hull's scenic Old Town.

Now part of a small chain of pubs including the nearby Wm. Hawkes & Walters. When I used to work in Hull this place was called Durty Nellies and was a fake Irish bar. Quite a lot of the decor is unchanged and it's pretty obvious what it used to be looking round. Even then it had 3 real ales on the bar which was very unusual. Now there are several more and the pub has an onsite brewery, but I've never seen it working and I've never seen the beer in here. It's quite a decent pub in a slightly raucous sort of way and is one of our regular stop offs in Hull. In fact on this visit we called in both nights. It's quite rightly listed in the GBG2013.
