This week Queen Elizabeth II became a royal record holder as the longest recorded reigning English monarch.

She beat the record of her great grandmother Victoria. Victoria or to give her, her proper name in Lincoln “The Vic” is still an institution. She has lent her name to probably the best pub in town, hard by the west gate of the castle. This truly authentic boozer is the scene of many fab long afternoons and “wee small hour evenings”. It is crammed pack full of great ales and a classic place to visit as a chill out option after one of our tours. Perhaps we need a new pub now called “The Elizabeth”……..
