Lincoln pub announces it will not reopen

A popular Lincoln pub, The West End Tap, has announced that it will not reopen after this lockdown.

The pub, located on Newland Street West in Lincoln, announced that after a tough year, the pub would not be reopening under its current management.

In a statement, the pub said: “I’m afraid it’s the news that we never wanted to have to announce.

“Unfortunately, after this lockdown the West End Tap will not be opening again, under our management anyway.

“Much love, thanks and endless respect for everyone involved in making the pub what it was over the last year or 2, sincerely hope to see you all in the near future for a pint in another one of the many great pubs Lincoln has to offer!”

Operating at the pub was independent pizzeria Weird Doughs Pizza Emporium who have recently announced that they hope to be operating from a new location in the near future and will be taking on former manager at The West End Tap, Dan Neale, to be part of their management team.

Weirdoughs said:

“Weirdoughs has loved being a part of their business as well as meeting their amazing patrons.”

“We have a new, bigger, more central venue which we will be operating from very shortly.

“We expect to be fully operational again by Wed 20th.

“We’re genuinely saddened by the news but very happy to have Dan on board with us and excited about our new venture.”
