The popular Gatehouse Inn in Lincoln is open again after a £200,000 makeover offering locals all the best of classic British pub hospitality and a host of sporting action.


The latest works to the pub, which is a busy hub of the community, mean customers can now watch live Sky Sports and BT Sports in the comfort of a great local pub, as well as enjoy darts and pool games. There has been a full makeover inside and out to guarantee customers make the most of their visits with quality drinks, entertainment and service in comfortable surroundings.


The traditional city pub on Newark Road is part of the award-winning Craft Union Pub Company, who were named the Best Community Operator at the 2022 Publican Awards. It invested £200,000 in The Gatehouse Inn during its recent refurbishment so the Lincoln community can enjoy this friendly neighbourhood pub for years to come.


It’s ideally located for local residents while appealing to the wider community thanks to a good-sized car park and beer garden. It has a striking street presence and is all the more appealing thanks to this latest refurb.


Inside the spacious pub the décor has been refreshed with new carpeting, soft furnishings and comfortable seating added. All areas have outstanding TV sports viewing and there is a new darts surround and darts throw and pool table for in-house sports. Clever use of space and zoning means different sports and entertainments can take place simultaneously.


Regulars will recognise a familiar face at the bar, Tara Clydesdale who remains at the helm as Operator, commented: “This is a really wonderful pub. I love it, it’s a real gem. It’s exciting to welcome customers back following the refurb. It looks amazing inside and out. Pubs are the original and the best meeting place and that is certainly true here. There is such a great community atmosphere and now it has all the added benefits of top sports, quality drinks and friendly service so it’s a brilliant place to sit back and relax. It’s a warm and welcoming pub with plenty of comfy seating and lots going on whether it’s TV sports, pool or darts, or live entertainment. Everyone is loving the new look and meeting up with friends, family and neighbours. It has kept all its character while offering today’s added comforts and leading HD technology!  We are open every day and offer great value, great service and great fun. Come in and see for yourself.”


The bar menu has been extended and features local, national and international beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks so there is something for everyone. Tara added: “This is the place to come for a refreshing pint, glass of wine, gin and tonic or whatever takes your fancy. There is a brilliant drinks selection without eye watering prices and some good value offers available throughout the year.”
