Ye Olde White Harte, Silver Street, Hull

I mentioned before that King Charles tried to enter Hull in 1642 and was told go away. As with most things English a pub has to be involved somewhere and this is no exception. Apparently the men  involved met beforehand in "ye plotting parlour" of this fair establishment before deciding to deny the king his munitions and so putting Parliament and monarch at odds. This is a seriously fine old building and well worth hunting down; it's lies down an alley off Silver Street, watch out for the skull in the saloon bar!
