A popular pub near Sleaford has delighted punters after reopening following three months of closure.

People were left gutted after the Houblon Arms in Oasby closed in June due to the owner’s bad health.

However, the same owner has since recruited a new general manager in Lewis Brown and the pub reopened last Friday, September 28.

And he says the pub will be taking a different approach this time around.

Mr Brown said: “It is going back to being a traditional country pub.

“We are taking it back to its traditional country routes.”

One of the changes includes the cost of drinks and the menu , which have been made cheaper to cater for a larger amount of people.

The menu has also changed with fine dining being ditched in favour of a more traditional country pub menu including fish and chips as well as lamb racks and sea bass dishes.

The opening was well attended and Mr Brown says it was “absolutely fantastic” to see so many faces return to the pub.

“They have been sad to have their pub close,” he said.

“Some of them have come back to the pub which has been brilliant and they said it is good to have it open again”

The pub also has a lot of history with the building date back to the 1600s.

It did used to be known as The Old Red Lion but was renamed as The Houblon Arms in honour of Sir John Houblon, the face of the old £50 note, who once owned the pub.

The pub also four rooms to hire with a hot tub.
