Glasshouse shuts to make way for carvery

For closure: The Glasshouse pub is set to close and become another family-friendlt restaurant this month.

A pub once popular with both students and locals in Lincoln will be closing down later this month and replaced by a “family friendly” restaurant.

The Glasshouse in St Marks Centre will be closing on April 16 to be transformed into a Toby’s Carvery, a national restaurant chain.

The transformation is set to take around 10 weeks, and will create around 40 local jobs.

Management at Glasshouse confirmed the closure of the pub, but were unable to give any further comments at the time of publishing.

Glasshouse serves food for low prices during the day and various alcohol choices during the night, and used to put on themed events.

Toby Carvery is a restaurant known for selling £5.49 Dinner meals throughout on weekdays and Saturdays, which is run by the same company behind Harvester and Lamb & Flag, Mitchells & Butlers.

Glasshouse is another member of the clubbing scene that has been replaced by a restaurant in recent months, after Scream and Quayside became Harvester.

Mitchells & Butlers did not reply to The Lincolnite‘s request for comment by the time of publishing.
