We are CLOSING after what has become our normal lockdown style working week at Noon on Saturday 4th July. We will remain closed until Friday 10th July, when we will reopen as a cafe at 9am BUT with a reduced capacity.


All bookings via Facebook Messenger, please leave your details and a contact number and we will contact you directly. Please be patient we reply to confirm your booking as soon as possible.


When we reopen there will be STRICTLY NO WALK-IN CUSTOMERS . There’ll be a new booking process in which we will be taking bookings for specific time slots only. If people without a booking arrive, they must not walk in but instead they can ring Solos to determine if and when we may be able to accommodate their arrival. This is to prevent known (or particularly unknown) individuals contacting others in an uncontrolled way. We are obliged by the authorities to facilitate track and tracing of guests due to the Coronavirus situation, this makes the concept of time slots and staggered arrival times imperative. Those with bookings are requested to wait to be invited into the cafe by staff. More detail will be posted online & an extra staff member will be on duty (amongst other duties) to help and guide guests as they arrive.


Our aim is to make everyone’s experience of Solos as “normal” as it ever was ONCE THEY ARE SEATED at their tables. We will shortly be Publishing our COVID 19 risk assessment outlining the new normal, all of which is to safeguard our esteemed guests, staff & to meet our public duty. I hope this info helps. Kind regards......

SOLOS MUSIC CAFE & for your private party

Solos Music Cafe is a nice bijou venue for your breakfast Lunch or morning coffee. By day we serve genuine home cooking and baking made with care and meticulous attention, by us on the premises making it an excellent choice at these times.

We sometimes present Live Music for your entertainment, notably most Wednesdays when local guitarist Martyn Potter comes about Noon to provide a ‘Latin’ musical backdrop to your dining experience. Other days Frank may well be around with his guitar depending on his working shifts.

A less well publicised arm of our enterprise is our evening Live Music. On most Friday and Saturdays we feature live music from local musicians [and on occasion those from further afield]. These shows are generally free of charge and take place between 7.15 and 10.15pm so why not give us a try?

There ARE some exceptions to this ‘free of charge’ policy, so it is always advisable to check by telephone first on Hull 363710.……

Have you ever considered Solos for your private event though!??

We are able to offer you the use of our little ‘30 something’ seat venue and cater your Private event be it…. A Christening, Baby Shower, Birthday Party, Retirement Party, Funeral Reception, Live Music Promotion, Meeting etc etc.

Call us on Hull 363710 to discuss your needs and wishes and we should be able to tailor you a suitable package and at a competitive price too! Generally with a large enough group, we can offer free room hire AND with our links and committment to the local Community of musicians, we are happy to recommend and signpost you towards entertainers to make your party swing or [if you prefer] Rock!

In such cases we are happy to act as middlemen and negotiate on your behalf but fees for the music will generally be negotiable with the musicians directly.

As a rough price guide we can provide menus at a price between £10/head for a hot 2 course meal and £12.50 for a substantial buffet of hot and cold foods, with cheeseboard and dessert to follow.

Kind Regards

The Solos Team

Connexins Internet and VOIP protocol Telephone Service.

We are very happy with the Internet & Phone service we are getting from Connexin.

This works by using the non KC internet service to provide us a very quick satellite dish based internet connection. That enables us to offer free WiFi to customers at Solos. We also have a Connexins telephone modem and cordless phone so that we use the internet service to link us with the outside world on our 01482 telephone contact number.. This number is provided to us by Connexins through their own arrangement with KC. There is some unique flexibility for their customers too in so far as they can opt to take an STD code associated with another UK region.

Our Internet speed is very quick compared to KC and we have now overcome some early issues we had which arose from us taking our wireless feed from a distant transmitter station. This meant the phone voice quality was intermittently poor and the internet signal occasionally weak. Connexins dealt with this promptly Now we have had our dish re-alligned to the equipment on Boothferry Estate's Torpoint Flats transmitter it works superbly.

In Line with the rest of Connexins customers Solos has just had a software update to the VOIP Telephone system which should improve call connectivity and clarity.

We have also finally eliminated the Voicemail box which Isn't monitored within our contract. This will improve our customer service and efficiency

Since our first posts regarding this partnership, their customer service has been good and their technical service and reliability has got better and better. Occasionally in our earliest days there were hiccups with the service during spate conditions of heavy weather [ in particular hail or heavy snow]. This also has stabilised presumably due to improvements in their infrastructure, soft and hardware.

Many Thanks Connexins!

September 2017

This has been a great year for Solos. We now have three regular weekend evening resident acts per month on the 1st second and last Friday evenings of each month.

Two Short Planks. Don't Mean Jack and Urban Rain each play from about 7.30pm finishing at closing time which for us is normally 10 to 10.15.

We have hosted a greater number of private parties than previous years which does help to support the free live music evenings which are always very good, usually very well attended but very occasionally for no apparent reason not.

We'll continue these but whereas we embraced a policy of taking absolutely no private bookings on a weekend [ in order to promote gauranteed free live music every single week], this is a luxury we can no longer indulge.

This simply means that booking [which has always been advisable] is even more advisable.

Towards the year end we can promise some really fabulous entertainers who have not performed too widely in the Hull area, and as such their presence at Solos is cause for a certain amount of excitement.

These events will necessarily incorporate a cover charge [or be an all inclusive package of meal and entertainment] . This again is a departure from how we normally roll at Solos but all these events will feature great music, food and represent Staggeringly good value for money.
