The landlord is fully aware that racist abuse takes place here and allows it to continue and escalate. He went as far as instructing people to delete footage of a racist incident that took place last night in an attempt to.hide the true happenings in this place. You are at risk if you go here and are a person of ethnic heritage.

We wasn’t expecting anything special, Especially after trying to get a table in literally every single place in Hull, and this was the only place which was practically empty.
The piece of paper with the menu on had the prices already knocked down on it, for the 50% ‘eat out to help out scheme’ or at least i am assuming it did, because it definitely was not worth the reduced amount, never mind anymore.

Our table was so sticky I thought someone had smothered it in gorilla glue. My partner asked for a cloth and the young, really polite lad came and cleaned it. The glasses were all marked and grubby, the same colour as the windows. Whilst waiting a customer - who seemed to be
friends with the staff came out the toilet and told them they would get shut down as for the last 2 days the hand wash only had a little bit in that had been watered down. He
brought it out and it just looked like water. A girl went into the toilets with hand sanitizer and the customer made the comment that she had put half in male half in female then
watered them down. . . Gross- especially when we are in the middle of a pandemic. It was nearly 8pm and I appreciate that it is a pub, but the only other customers
were drunk middle aged men, shouting and swearing - not exactly a family atmosphere. The whole place smelled like a pouch of Samsung tobacco and Stale beer- which I
wouldn’t mind if it was just a pub, that did karaoke and were you would go to get wasted without getting dressed up. But why are they serving food and advertising as a
family pub?

We had been looking for somewhere to eat for a good
couple of ours, so we were starving. Mine and my sons food came out first and I couldn’t stop laughing at the little bit of chicken, with a dot of bbq sauce, rock hard bacon
topped with what I am assuming was watercress (I don’t understand why the watercress was on there, it didn’t go or make it look any more appetising). My son had a pizza
which was fine, didn’t really taste of anything except dough, bit like the really cheap ones from Lidl - but he is 7, pizza is pizza. My partners pie was like a birds eye one
from Iceland 4 for £1. Chips tasted like a freezer. The portions were like a junior meal and myself and my partner were still hungry, we couldn’t even force ourselves to eat it
all. The guy who brought mine and my sons food out said “is that it?” So we stated that there should be a pie which he went to the kitchen and checked. When he came back
he said “yeah won’t be long, we knew the pizza was for the kid so we brought it out first”. So why did they bring mine out too? How did they know the pizza was for my son, they
didn’t have a kids menu so it was all ordered off the adults menu, by my partner at the bar. Why not just say “sorry we forgot to microwave your little hard
pie”, which I’m assuming was the case as it was like lava when it came out. No one came over to ask how the food was, I wonder why?

I completely support local businesses and the whole point of the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme, is to do exactly that- help out. But this place needs serious help! Help to clean, help to cook, help to create atmosphere, help to host. Nothing a few extra bookings is going to solve. I feel awful writing such a rubbish review, but it’s the truth and they
need to stop serving food desperately! We used to love this place around 5 years ago but now it is tragic.

Unless you want a pint of pale ale in a mucky glass and a jäger bomb, I suggest you give it a miss. I wouldn’t eat here if I was paid to.

Me and a few friends were going for a few beers down prinny ave and we came to the end of the road and popped into Pearson's for a few and couldn't of asked for more! On a busy Saturday afternoon we got served pritty much straight away with the speedy service, great variety of larger's & ciders alongside a few beers on hand pull. After a couple of beers we got a bit peckish and let me tell you the food was just bliss. I had a piri piri chicken burger which was mouth wateringly good, to my surprise they even had an Asian cuisine section so my friend ordered the sweet and sour that was better then a local Chinese down the street. Offers a wide range from pub classics, pizzas and Asian cuisines. I spoke to the manager and a young bar staff member thanking them for our experience and they couldn't be more welcoming during a busy time. Thank you so much! We will be back!
