Latest in a line of pubs that have had to shut
THE Minerva is the latest pub to close this year in Hull as punters choose to stay at home instead of head out for a pint.
Earlier this year, The Lamp in Norfolk Street closed its doors after owners said the business was no longer financially viable.
Promoters were left scrambling to find a new venue for gigs after an announcement on the pub's Facebook page.
Hollywood And Vine in Beverley Road also closed its doors at the end of August after struggling for a number of months to make ends meet.

Manager Mac Tilley said: "It closed due to lack of trade and people not supporting us.
"The company which owns it now wants to sell the building.
"It's quite a large financial project because it needs work doing on it but, you never know, somebody might take it.
"It's always a shame when venues close."
