£240,000 facelift for Lincoln pub

Lincoln pub The Homestead will be closing on July 11 for a rebrand and then reopening as Fayre & Square.

The £240,000 renovation will create eight new jobs in the city and introduce a new menu.

The pub on Canwick Road, Bracebridge Heath, is owned by Spirit Pub Company, which operates 803 pubs and brands nationwide and has over 16,000 employees.

The pub will reopen on July 30. On the day, from 12pm-4pm, there will be family entertainment featuring jugglers and face painters.

The Homestead is also looking for a local family to officially open the pub, who will then receive VIP treatment.

General manager Martyn Adams said: “I am really excited about the transformation of the Homestead and I am looking forward to introducing our new team members who will help give the brighter new look pub the best start possible.

“We’re going to be delivering great food, great prices and great service all day, every day.

“I am sure we are going to wow our guests with our exciting new menu featuring Firecracker Chicken, Steak & Bombardier Ale Pie and a ‘square’ shaped burger, adding a touch of fun.

“I’m sure there are so many families within the community who are an inspiration to others through their voluntary work or who have overcome hurdles but don’t get any recognition.

“So I would like to use our opening as an opportunity to say thank you by treating a family to VIP treatment including a meal on us.”

There is an opportunity for people to buy all the old furniture and fittings within the pub before the renovation.

All revenue from the sales will be donated to the Help For Heroes Charity.
