Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Head of Steam

This is a very small branch of the Head of Steam chain just across the square from Hull Minster. It was also fairly quiet compared with most Hull city centre pubs on our Saturday evening visit.

Just the 4 real ales were on - Atom Catalyst & Ellipsis, Green Duck American Pale & Ossett Butterley. The cider was Snail's Bank Banoffee Pie.

The pub has a cafe-like feel, with bench seating around tables. I'd imagine it gets more custom during the daytime when tourists are around. The female bouncer seemed a little bored and cold!

The Head of Steam chain is still fairly reliable and despite the lack of beers compared with other branches, I quite enjoyed the atmosphere in here and both the beers and cider we chose were enjoyable.

7 cask ales on the bar plus some keg too. On cask was Darkness Cometh by Wilde Child, one or two by Atom, Theakston Best Bitter, Camerons Ahopalypse Now, Camerons Strongarm and possibly something else. Belgian and American bottles were also advertised.

I went for the Darkness Cometh which was a chocolate orange stout, at £2.00 for a half. Decent enough place and I would be happy to pay a return visit (indeed, this is my second visit, and I don't get to Hull often).

Strangely no where near the, or actually any previous, station, one L shaped room with L shaped bar (nearly), 7 pulls and some interesting kegs. Mainly woody in feel, apart from the brick bits, there’s some upholstered furniture and a partly tiled bar. Beer quality is fine, it’s GBG2019 listed.
