OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Strugglers Arms — so called because it was the site of the old gallows and of course in those days there was no quick method.

This pub has really good beer and is in the CAMRA Guide.

I wonder what Lincoln did wrong that makes it so ‘unsignposted’ from the motorway :/ It’s easier to find Worksop!

Ah well — we love you Lincoln…
