You may have noticed that Lincolns is closed (since Friday 27 February) with a notice on the door stating “Closed due to revocation of licence”.
We hear that the licence has been transferred back to Trust Inns, which means that the current tenants no longer have an Licensed Premises Supervisor and so may not sell alcohol at the pub. Therefore, it has closed.
Lincolns was still trading under appeal following the revocation of their licence, and it remains to be seen whether this appeal will still go ahead (30 March – 1 April at Waltham Forest Magistrates’ Court) or whether Trust Inns will prefer to apply for a fresh licence when they have new tenants. At this stage we are assuming the appeal will go ahead as planned.
