...hasn't been a pub for years...currently a pet shop with friendly staff and a ready welcome for damp dogs...haven't seen it on sale but they may stock canine beer if you ask them nicely

Thank Karl0104

I never visited this pub but was surprised when passing today to see it's closed and all boarded up. Tried the telephone number but it's out of service too so looks as if the Horncastle is permanently closed.

Thank Nonglak L
