Hogshead (Kingston-upon-Hull) Reviews
Newest Review: ... bridge into the Cannon Junction café bar and suddenly the area was abuzz with people. One day the familiar wooden hoarding went up around the old bingo hall. Most of the 'lercals' (or locals if you aren't one) thanked their lucky stars that they were finally going to demolish the ugly old eyesore but a few months later out popped the Hogshead!
