These are all the Lincoln pubs and bars taking walk-ins right now

Looking for a last-minute pint? We’ve got you

There is only one week left until May 17th, and if you cross your fingers hard enough maybe it won’t rain all day for a week straight, and al fresco dining won’t seem all that daunting. But we live in Lincoln so you can never be too sure. Even with the opening of hospitality venues indoors, some venues may not be taking bookings.

Since April 12th, bars and pubs across Lincoln have welcomed us all back with open arms. Until next Monday, only those with outdoor seating are allowed to welcome back people after months of being closed.

Luckily in Lincoln, there are a fair few venues that are still open, and many are operating on a walk-in only basis. Although booking a table is fairly straight forward, when someone poses the all important “Shall we go for a pint?” after a gruelling day at uni, and everywhere is booked, you need to figure out where to go.

But worry not, we have got you covered. Here is a list of venues in Lincoln that will make the impromptu pint a lot easier:

1. Royal William IV

At the very end of the Brayford is the forever busy and popular Royal William IV. They are open everyday from 9am to 9pm. They serve food and drinks all throughout the day.

They are currently taking bookings indoors from May 17th.
