Castle Inn

Picture source: Roger Fillingham


The Castle Inn was situated on Station Road. This pub was present by 1861 when the publican was Benjamin Makins. It closed in 2010 and is now used as a private residence.

From Lincolnshire Heritage:
The former Castle Inn public house was briefly described in November 2015, although was not included in the detailed programme of historic building recording of the adjacent outbuildings. The structure is a mid 19th century former public house and smallholding, designed in a Victorian Italian Renaissance style. It is of two storeys, and is constructed of red brick laid in a Flemish bond. The building features a pitched slate roof with deeply overhanging eaves. The building has a central pedimented door opening, flanked by triple round-headed windows, with a cogged first floor band above. The public house closed as a business in 2010, and the building has since been converted to use as a private residence.

When they retired which was somewhere around 1973 they were Home Ales's second longest serving tenants at 33 years, approx. I have fond memories as a child and teenager, visiting the Castle to see my Grandmother Priestley and Uncle George and Aunt Eleanor!
