The Magpies Inn was situated at 32 Waterside North. This pub was present by 1794. Upon closure it became The Royal British Legion Club and is currently the Waterside Social Club.
On 12th August 1842 Caroline Holmes, single woman, of 13 Union Place was accused at Lincoln Quarter Sessions of stealing a sovereign from George Rumble, publican.

From The St Swithin's, Lincoln Parish Register:

Daniel Smith, a stranger from The Magpies Inn, Water-side was buried 15th February 1818 aged 36 years.
