General Discussion / Outlets in Lincoln
« Last post by discjockey on Feb 19 - 2017 »
Is there anybody out there who can advise of any off licence outlets in Lincoln where the bottled sammy smiths range can be purchased. Yes I know a SS pub exists in the city centre but would prefer not to get them as carry out  --  mind you if I had to a couple of cask OBB's then I wouldn't need a carry out  --  HELP

A manager said that he knew where they were from in this thread going back to 2015 where you seemed to think the same then! :)

Apologies to resurrect this again:

I now give up my Benson's theory and go with Kolak. They supply the following and Aldi taste the closest to Sam's I think......maybe?
Asda
Waitrose.
Marks & Spencer.
The Co-Operative.
Morrisons
Discounters
Aldi.
Lidl.
Poundland.
B & M Retail.

Samuel Smiths - Pub List / Re: Admiral Hawke - Boston Spa

According to local rumour, the Admiral Hawke is getting a 'different' kind of makeover to the normal Smiths refurbs. Young Sam has apparently taken an interest in the design, having seen the success of the various wine bars / bistros that have sprung up in Boston Spa. So perhaps expect something other than the poky little rooms, dark stained wood and highly patterned carpets that usually get put in. I think the kitchens are also being done up and it will be interesting to see if a different food offering emerges. it will be interesting to see what this new 'concept' (as somebody called it) turns out like, though the situation of the Admiral Hawke, just outside the centre of the village, means it may struggle to get the trade that now goes into the other local establishments.

As to when it will reopen, do not expect any big fanfares or publicity - your only indication may well be when you see the scaffolding gone and the lights on when you pass.

General Discussion / Re: Taddy Bridge
« Last post by OldBreweryDrinker on Feb 16 - 2017 »
Sorry to bring up old news, but why did Samuel Smith's Brewery object to the widening of Tadcaster's bridge? From what I can tell, and do do correct me if I'm wrong, the reason the brewery refused to allow the footbridge on their land was because they WANTED the actual bridge to be widened? Isn't this all a bit hypocritical?



Spoken like a true journalist. It looks like GeorgeB's article will be fair & unbiased  :()

How true.  :GIVEB:

The Blackies is now doing a great Sunday lunch. Was in on Sunday just gone and the food looked fantastic and plentiful. Good menu and not expensive. OBB was on absolutely top form. Cant wait to go back in.  :DD :DD

Glad to hear that there is some good news around the empire,as in parts it seems doom & gloom again.

Lets hope that they are still there on your next visit.  :WF
