New Lincoln High Street micropub given go-ahead

Cheers to that!

City of Lincoln Council has given the go-ahead for a new micropub to turn on the taps on the city’s High Street.

The proposal will see the Tiny Tavern open at 107 to 108 High Street in an old cottage next to the Salvation Army.

The unit, which was home to the Gilded Quill tattoo studio before it relocated, will be converted into a traditional pub with a beer garden.

Emma Chapman lodged an application to the council back in November for an alcohol licence and to change the signage and add a hanging sign to the Grade II Listed building.

Now, the local authority has given go-ahead for the plan.

In the proposal, the developer said that the micropub would “diversify” the local economy and be a positive addition for the community.

It said: “The social outcome of the proposal would be also positive to the local community.

“The public house would become a meeting point for traditional local residents and the recently-growing student population in the neighbourhood.

“This would strengthen the social relationships within the local community.”
