Situated in the High Street area, close to Hull's Museums Quarter and William Wilberforce House, Hull’s oldest pub dates back to 1336 where it was originally a tenement. It was first licensed in 1729 having previously had many roles including a brothel and a coffee house. It is believed to be named after a Moroccan boy who worked in the building when it was a coffee shop in the 1730s. It has kept many of its original features including some ghostly apparitions apparently! Nowadays you can enjoy a selection of regularly changing real ales, ciders and fruit wines amongst other beverages.
