Everyone likes a cheeky drink after work, and no-one does this better than students. University students have a lot on their plate, so can we blame them for wanted to go out for a drink (or three) every so often? If you are in the Hull area, here are some of the best student spots and top bars for you to visit.
This local pub is a great stop for students. It is a very short walk from the University of Hull, so you can head there straight from class if you want.
Here you can get some classic pub grub and even stop for breakfast at 10am…if you can wake up early enough. There are no less than six ciders and an equal amount of beer, all at affordable student prices.
There are several TVs located around the pub so you can watch your favourite sporting events. If sport isn’t your thing, you can pick up one of the many board games on offer and get your competitive juices flowing while enjoying a beverage.
The Haworth is located: 449 Beverley Road, Hull HU6 7LD
