  1. The nearest pub to both The Lincoln Arms and The Victoria is The Royal Oak, a very local pub still thriving in this difficult market!

  2. It doesn’t bother me if the pub goes, it’ll be even better if they buy up the car wash as well which is an eye sore coming into Beverley with all their noise and spray that we have to live with all day every day of the week and the council don’t want to do anything about. We will all need the residential home in the end as the elderly are living longer. That will be quite nice on the doorstep. Don’t have to move far.
