There are so many beautiful artworks in this gallery. There are 12 different galleries although the 11th one was undergoing maintenance. There is something for everyone here.

Been here a few times so popped in during the recent downpours. Great service as usual and the food and drinks were served to the table quickly and all piping hot. First class as always. Will be back again when in town.

Great gallery, make sure you see the film of the Bue painted people of Hull made when it was City of Culture, it's only about 5 mins long and at the side of the entrance hall

We've just seen the Small Films exhibition and had a wonderful time. We especially appreciated making our own little film and showing the children the things we used to watch.
