Jim Sheery was the proprietor in the 1990’s, I worked her for a couple of years in 94-96. Jim also owned a car dismantlers and scrapyard in Lincoln. He was a true Irish gentleman. Jim had a daughter and Son, His Son Sean passed away sometime since, he would have been in his 30’s. His daughter Sharon (if I remember correctly) was married to a guy called Gareth, Gareth managed the Bar in 95-96. I left Lincoln in 96 and returned to Ireland, I often wonder how all the customers and great people I met then are doing, I’d say quiet a number of those I know have passed on it was aging Irish population who generally frequented this Bar, I also worked occasionally in O’Donaghues in the High Street and who have had a few pints in another Irish bar at the top of Scorer Street possibly. Its name slips me at the minute.
