Popular Lincoln live music pub to reopen its doors

A pub in Lincoln popular for its live music will re-open next month after it closed suddenly.

As previously reported, the publican at the Tap & Spile on Hungate reportedly decided to shut down the venue. Owners EiGroup Plc said at the time it hoped to find a solution for the venue which has been around for several decades.

Adam Kay, who opened the Dandy Lion Alehouse on Newland back in May, will now also take over the reigns at the Tap & Spile along with his brother Matthew.

He told The Lincolnite: “We are excited to be taking over such a renowned venue which has a long association with the Lincoln music scene.

“Our aim is to provide quality ales, beers and spirits in a friendly and hospitable atmosphere.

“We are looking forward to reopening the Tap and are currently putting together a diary of events.

“If local musicians want to get in touch with us to play here they can message us through Facebook.”

The first band is already booked to play with Relentless announced to perform on the opening weekend on February 8.
