Meat Inc restaurant closes after three months

“Poor trading conditions”

Meat Inc. Burger House & Bar on The Strait in Lincoln has closed down after just three months of trading.

Meat Inc. which replaced the former Ribs ‘n’ Bibs restaurant, opened in March 2018 following a rebrand.

Owners of the venue also own Meat Inc. on Caenby Corner, and invested £10,000 into bringing the burger brand to the city centre, with all staff from Ribs ‘n’ Bibs restaurant keeping their jobs.

However, the restaurant has now closed due to what they say were “extremely poor trading conditions”.

Customers spotted stock and furniture was boxed up in the windows of the restaurant at the beginning of the week.

Charles Patrick, Co-Owner of Meat Inc. Burger House & Bar, previously told The Lincolnite that the company launched the city centre variation of the Meat Inc. concept due to its popularity.

He said on Tuesday: “We closed on Sunday, June 24 due to extremely poor trading conditions. The business was not viable.

“The site at Caenby Corner will continue to trade for the time being.

“The lease will be reassigned at 8/9 The Strait to a new operator.”
