G.W. Horners

G.W. Horners, 21 Anlaby Road, Hull, 2013 Pub in an imposing ex-fleapit, The Regent, which was built in 1910 (the towers were added later) and owned by the same family as the Tower. It closed 1979, by which time it specialised in X-rated fare. The bar is in the former foyer, and may not be as welcoming as the exterior suggests: the establishment was ordered to use plastic drinking vessels after an outbreak of glassings. Apparently the current name derives from a giant confectionery works in Chester-Le-Street, where the pub had its original branch.
