Initial Impressions

The Admiral of the Humber is located on Anlaby Road in Hull's city centre and is part of the J.D. Wetherspoon pub chain. The nearby parking is mostly either paid on street or in multi-story car parks. The pub was visited late on a Friday lunchtime and was very busy when entered, with almost all of the tables occupied. It was quieter when it was left, but it was still pretty busy. There are various clubs available throughout the week, and on Friday's this is the fish club.

To order, you must first find a table and make a note of the number, then go to the bar to order and pay for whatever is chosen. On the table was a container with various bottled condiments and sauces, and cutlery is brought with the food, wrapped in a napkin.

The Food

The meal chosen came with an included drink, which could be from a range of hot and cold alcoholic and soft drinks, although ordering an alcoholic drink would cost £1 extra. A draught Pepsi was ordered, the size of which was increased to a pint for an extra 20p. This was better value than the normal drink size, and the Pepsi was as good as can be expected from a draught soft drink.

Main Course

The food was ordered from the normal menu, and was a Mexican Burger. This is available with a 6oz beef burger, chicken breast or a vegetable burger, and chicken was the one chosen. This could have been doubled up for an extra £1, which adds another burger. The burger can be further modified, if desired, with additional toppings.

The burger was served in a bun with a slice of cheese, lettuce, sliced red onions, a slice of tomato, guacamole, sliced chilli peppers and three battered onion rings, with another three on the plate, and was held together with a wooden skewer. This was accompanied with a small container of salsa and a portion of chips.

The burger was not hot when received. It wasn't cold, but it was only warm, as if it had been left standing for some minutes before being brought out, although the chips were hot.

Dessert

The dessert finally chosen was the Belgian Waffle with Ice Cream, as the initial choices were all unavailable at the time. This was a warmed waffle served with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and came with a strawberry & blueberry compote, although it could alternatively be had with maple flavour syrup.

The ice cream in the dessert was not cold. It wasn't warm, but it was only chilled, and the warmed waffle was not very warm. Again, as with the main course, it gave the impression that it had been left standing for some minutes before it was served.

My Review

The total cost of the meal came to £8.99, which was quite reasonable. The speed of service on this occasion was quite slow, although the expected delay was advised before ordering, with it taking over 30 minutes for the main course and over 15 for the dessert to be served. When the dessert was ordered, three of them were unavailable, the Carrot Cake, Ice Cream Sundae and Bramley Apple Pie.

The lack of table service and having to leave the table and go to the bar to order every time is inconvenient, when visiting alone, especially when the place is busy, as this means either leaving the table unoccupied, or leaving possessions at it to show that it is being used.

The food was not bad, but it should have been hotter (or colder, as appropriate). The cost and quality is was otherwise reasonable, but The Admiral of the Humber is probably not a place to visit when it is very busy, judging by this visit.

2 stars for The Admiral of the Humber, Hull
