Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Punch Hotel

The notably ornate façade is always worth a look if walking past (as I have now done quite a few times), but finally deciding to step inside the much-altered interior was sadly as dull as I was expecting. However, it does benefit from being thoroughly unfashionable, and was thus pretty civilised on a post-football Saturday evening when most of the other city centre pubs were getting decidedly 'lively'. Three Marston's group real ales on handpump: Jennings Cumberland, Ringwood Boon Doggle and Old Empire IPA (£3.20).

A very ornate pub on the outside leads into a fairly bland interior which is smaller than I expected. The left hand room has lots of dark wood panels and the ceiling is interesting. It was very quiet on my Thursday evening visit. There are 3 handpumps, 2 were on and both were badged with the desperately bland Cumberland Ale which was kept well enough. Could be so much better than it is.

This is a large landmark pub just outside Hulls main shopping centre.
Whenever we have been in the Punch it has been very busy with shoppers but we have always managed to grab a seat,there is always one real ale on the bar which is usually Marstons Bitter this is quite a decent drink.
The pub does cheap pub lunches and also has a carvery which seems very popular.
If you are shopping in Hull with the wife this pub is ideal for a quick drink and refuel.
