Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited here for a family birthday drinks. Very disappointed! Very high prices and badly maintained barely! Prices were almost double of nearby bars (George Hotel, Burlington Tavern, Kingston etc). Floor in the bar was sticky, despite barman spending time on his phone when not serving,...and toilets were not maintained with a glass stood in one urinal and a hand dryer with the push button hanging out on a spring. I will go elsewhere before going back here again!!More

This establishment is one of the best we have found in Hull. Always good to find small dishes on a menu, rather than having vast quantities of food shoved on one plate. The garlic mushrooms were spot on, as was the chicken and chorizo, although...I would have liked a slightly spicier chorizo. The pies are supplied by the excellent Hull Pie, you can't go wrong with them. Very reasonably priced and a good atmosphere in the pub.More

After arriving in hull at dinner time we were absolutely starved but specifically wanted a Sunday Roast. We didn’t have a clue where to go for the roast and was just about to enter Yates as they are standard (but you know what your gonna...get!) then we spotted the Crown and cushion which looked quite inviting! When we entered it was really quiet and wasn’t sure if this was a warning sign or not, however when our Sunday Roasts were served we were glad we chose this place!!! The Yorkshire puddings were cooked spot on, the chicken was moist and seasoned to perfection with a hint of Lemon and Rosemary and all the veggies were not cooked to every inch of there life and again perfect, finished off with a really tasty Gravy!!! I would not hesitate to go back to this place as the food was exceptional!!! Keep up the good work!!!More

Needed something to eat before meeting up with freidns for a night out in town. Spotted this place and took a quick gander at the menu and thought we would pop in. The decor of the place is nice a articticly done, with a few...quirky images. Whilst the item that initially drew us in was that face that is was seling 'The Pie Shop' pies [well known in Hull for very good quality and flavoursome pies] we actually decided on a more 'tapas' style small plate offering. You get to chose 3 small plates for the very reasonable £12ish price point. We went for the gnocci, some calimari and also some Chorizo...and they are all served with some ciabatta bread. The food came to us in reasonable time, although the barmen apologised for the delay. Im lead to believe that there was a longer delay if we were having mains, but again we did hear the barman letting people know that before ordering. To me I do not mind the wait, if the food is worth it. For us, with the small plates, it was, and even if we had had a main [i.e. the Pies] then we know how good they are, so would have just sat back and enjoyed the place [and an extra pint] whilst waiting. The 3 small plate selection we had filled us nicely to line the stomach before hitting the town for a few beers, and left us satiated with tasty nibbles, without the destended stomach and no room for any drinks. Will definately be going back for the Pie experience.More

We called by here on the off chance after finding our usual places ( Wings, Wetherspoons etc.) with queues or packed on a busier the normal Saturday night. The staff were welcoming and informative. The wine and beer very nice but the food was amazing....We had the Mexican wrap and the quesilladia. You could tell that this was freshly cooked with proper ingredients ( not the usual frozen pub grub). A real find for two weary and hungry people. They serve food until 8-00pm. A few other places we tried had stopped serving at 6-00. Their loss.More

We ate here early on a Wednesday evening. We were the only diners the whole time, which is a shame as this is a gem. The menu is a bit random - a choice of pies or tapas. We both had pies and they were...excellent. We shared a rich chocolate fondant between us. The food was really tasty, the service superb and it was excellent value for money. We will definitely return when we are next in Hull.More

Two of us ordered small plates: calamari, chicken wings, halloumi, tomatoes with Parmesan, fried gnocchi and garlic mushrooms. All of them were delicious, but the mushrooms were our favourite. The other two members of our group had pies. They were slightly overcooked, but still tasty....Total recommendationMore

My wife and I were visiting Hull for the first time. A weekend birthday/anniversary treat. Before going to the cinema on a Friday night we decided to explore the old town area. We popped into here to eat around 5pm after the menu caught our...attention. Though it was quiet when we arrived, the staff were super friendly and welcoming. We opted for the steak&ale and chicken,bacon & leek pies, which arrived promptly and were really tasty. There is a good selection of beers which the barman offered me to try before you buy. Also the staff were very helpful in giving us information on places to visit in Hull. We would recommend anyone visiting Hull for the first time to stop in here.More

A newish, to me anyway, pub near the old town of Hull. This place looks large from the outside, but one through the door, it reveals itself to be quite small, with an old school bar vibe. As it was lunch, we were there for...food rather than drink, and the menu covers lots of pub greats, including award winning pies, burgers, small plates, and what I was here for the Poutine. My other half had three small plates, which she was very taken with, and wasn't in the mood to share. Which suited me fine, as I was in no mood to share my Poutine either!More

Tucked away in the old town, was quiet when we arrived. Quite a few people cane in for the pies which looked really nice. The menu isn’t vast and it is very much a pub, sticky floor included! The food however was really good and...reasonably priced. The sandwich had lots of warm filling and the brisket and cheese burger with a pretzel bun was really nice, the skinny fries were lovely. Wasn’t sure when we arrived but the food won me over!More

We visited as a family of four on Sunday 24th March 2019. It was our first visit and it certainly won't be our last! We received a warm welcome on arrival and given a choice of tables to sit at. We chose to sit at...a window table. The menu had a good choice for all and included several choices of kids meals. My son chose the meatballs. Myself, my Husband and our daughter all chose pies from 'The Hull Pie' options on the menu. I had the curried vegetable pie. It was delicious! The Sunday roast meals looked delicious! We saw several plates served up while we were in there. The Yorkshire puddings looked amazing. We'll definitely be giving the roast dinner a try some time! Prompt, friendly service. I highly recommend a visit to The Crown and Cushion Pub.More
