The Lincoln Castle pub opened for business in the late 1990s, in what had previously been the Yarborough Arms (see separate entry). The licence of the pub transferred to a small clubhouse just to the south of the main building, probably following Howarth Timber’s acquisition of the premises.
The club had been the home of the Railway Men’s Coal Club, which had at one time itself been related to the Yarborough Hotel. This single-storey building was originally built in 1857 as the Yarborough Literary Institute, a sort of local library.
In its new premises, it was to all intents and purposes still a pub, however much it may have resembled a club, and locals inform me that no membership was required to drink within. A sign on the outside stated ‘public house’.
Although the pub is now closed (since c.2017), the building is still open and well-used, mostly as a local (New Holland) community centre, and latterly the Ferryboat Cafe.
