Popular burger joint moving to Lincoln village

It will open in August

A hamburger diner is relocating to Nettleham after closing its popular premises north of Lincoln earlier this month.

As previously reported, Meat Inc. on Caenby Corner, which describes itself as “Lincolnshire’s best kept comfort food secret”, closed its doors for the final time on Sunday, July 28.

Meat Inc. will be moving in at The Black Horse pub in Nettleham. The building is split into two and the diner will move in at the back, which can seat 48 people. The pub will remain open as normal.

It will open in its new location in August with an exact opening date expected to be announced in the coming days.

It will create around seven new jobs, although this could increase.

A representative for Meat Inc. told The Lincolnite: “It’s amazing and we think it’s going to be a massive asset.

“With us being so much more local to Lincoln and from the comments we’ve had we are feeling positive.

“Foodwise everything will stay the same, but we will also be able to offer live entertainment, including a live band for the opening night.”

Over 980 people commented on Meat Inc’s Facebook announcement on Wednesday morning that it had found a new location.

The diner moved from its previous location on Caenby Corner after being made aware of alternative plans for the site saying “we are powerless to stop these under the terms of our lease”.

It has been a tough last 12 months for Meat Inc. – its Burger House & Bar on The Strait in Lincoln also closed down in June 2018 after just three months of trading.
