    Default Help Finding Original Name of Lincoln Pub

    I recently went in this pub The Scene in Lincoln.

    I asked the friendly barman what its original name was but no proper old names for it.

    I was wondering if any members would know the original name of it back in the early 80s.

    I do have few pubs that i did back then and can not identify now

    These are

    Swiss Cottage
    The Falstaff
    Duke of Wellington
    Crown and Cushion

    I hope you have more luck than me,if you have the time to look into this.

    Thanks Alan

    Before being The Scene it was called Christopher's for quite a few years, certainly in 2007.

    No idea before that I'm afraid.

    Crown & Cushion was at 26 Melville Street.
    Duke Of Wellington 37 Broadgate
    Falstaff 270 High Street
    Swiss Cottage 65 Newland

    You could always look at Streetview and find out what is there now.

    The Scenes address is 35 Newland.
    There are records showing a pub called the Blue Marlin and The Swiss Cottage at this address.

    Thanks for taking the time to look into this problem.

    I now presume that The scene was called the Swiss Cottage when i went in it back in 1983.

    This is a slightly curious one, because I don't think 65 Newland ever existed as a separate address.

    The space between 51 Newland (the last in the short terrace on the west side of the Orchard Street junction) and 67 Newland (the converted house now used as the Club Easy student accommodation) was originally the landscaped grounds of a substantial property known as Newland House.

    This large plot was acquired at some stage (probably during the 1920s) by Lindsey County Council to create its new headquarters building; since 1974, the main offices of Lincolnshire County Council.

    Anyway, the public house shown on a Ordnance Survey map of 1888 at 35 Newland was called the Swiss Cottage at that time.

    Rudwick's trade directory of Lincoln 1919 shows the Swiss Cottage at 35 Newland landlord Frederick Waby, and shows even numbers to 104 but odd numbers only to 57 after that it's the junction with The Avenue and then continues as Newland St West.

    Kelly's Lincolnshire 1913 also has it at 35 Newland, landord Fred Mackley. The 1911 census has Fred Mackley b1866, at the Swiss Cottage Inn as well.

    I guess four primary sources beats all comers.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Those that drink beer are the best
