Hopes popular Cleethorpes pub could reopen after licence application

A once popular Cleethorpes pub could be set to reopen, after a licensing application was submitted.

The Foundry, on Grant Street, suddenly closed earlier this year. New owner North East Lincolnshire Council then offered it out for tender.

However, Amber Taverns has now applied to make changes to the pub’s premises licence, raising hopes that it may soon return.

The application for a variation of a premises licence, submitted to the council, requests the sale of alcohol daily from 9am-2am, along with “regulated entertainment”.

Formerly known as O’Neills Irish Bar and The Old Vic, The Foundry shut its doors in January. No explanation was given for the sudden closure.

Although not directly involved, the former pub is in an area earmarked for regeneration as part Cleethorpes‘ Levelling Up Funding. Earlier this year, the town ‘masterplan’ was awarded £18.4m.

Ambern Taverns runs 164 pubs across the country, according to its website, but the chain has yet to establish itself in northern Lincolnshire. It runs two bars in Hull, the Harry Pursey, which took over a former Wetherspoons site; and the Ebeneezer Morley, in the city centre.

Representations regarding the application must be made in writing by August 27.
