Landlords Iain and Johann Jubbs were chosen to run the Batemans-owned pub, after visiting a recruitment day run by the Wainfleet-based brewer.

Johann previously ran a pub in Spain and a tapas bar in Lincoln. The pub trade will be a new experience for Iain, who used to work for the Shaw Trust, a charity helping disabled and disadvantaged people into work

Iain said: “We’re incredibly excited about running The Woolpack – it now has a fresh new look supported by a fantastic menu and my expert team; we’re great believers of supporting young people from the local area and our staff reflect this.

“We’re very pleased to be part of the Batemans family and look forward to welcoming customers to our pub.”

The transformation of The Woolpack is part of a wider regeneration programme by Batemans.

Managing director Stuart Bateman said: “We have carried out the biggest and most extensive refurbishment of any pub in Batemans history at The Woolpack, and it is now a truly magnificent quality local pub which the brewery and community can be proud of.”

Coffee Republic hot drinks will be available at the pub, the first time Batemans has worked with a branded coffee retailer.
