As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.
Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Pub(s) known to have reopened after lockdown (or close to reopening)
Please tell us if you know of any pubs which have reopened after lockdown that we don't list here.
Lindsey is a highly dispersed settlement, but with some lovely old houses dotted around its tyes and greens. The village is believed to have given its name to Lindsay Wolseys, a type of cloth. A mid-12th century castle site (possibly with a Saxon antecedent) and St. James chapel are historic monuments.
Lindsey was recorded in Domesday as "Balesheia" and on John Speed's 1610 map as "Lynſey"
