The Grafton Hotel is a detached property situated in Grafton Street, in a densely populated area close to local shops and amenities. It is approximately ¾ of a mile from Hull City Centre and just a five minute walk to the popular Newland Avenue where the bars and restaurants are often frequented by the student population. The pub is mainly surrounded by residential terraced housing, with a number of these let to university students. It is in the lounge area of the Grafton that the Housemartins and Beautiful South were formed. Front man Paul Heaton lived locally and the Grafton was a favourite watering hole for both bands, providing inspiration for some of their lyrics.
