A Brigg pub is now all set to reopen for 'table service' as soon as the Government removes one of its Coronavirus emergency restrictions from Monday, April 12, and plans to serve its first pints at 10am.
The Black Bull, on Wrawby Street, has a sizeable south-facing beer garden (with palm trees!) behind the premises and close to the town's main Old Courts Road car park.
Landlord Andy Noon informs Brigg Blog that staff have already been kitted out with suitable outdoor wear. But with fingers crossed for good weather, it's hoped this protective measure will prove unnecessary!
The very popular picture gallery of customers displayed in the pub's front windows during the latest lockdown period is to be removed in readiness for reopening. But Andy tells us there are plans to frame these images in a collage and have them permanently placed in the pub.
'Mine host' has kindly provided a couple of very recently taken pictures, seen here, showing the Bull's beer garden ready and waiting to welcome customers.
The Black Bull pub was established here circa 1820 and has seen various owners and licensees over the past 200 years.
The palm trees were provided while the Dexter's company ran the Bull.
Brigg Blog will be running more posts later this week outlining when other local hostelries are going to be reopening (dates, times, pictures and other details).
