UPDATE 24 JUNE 2020
RE-OPENING OUR SITE SAFELY FOR OUR STAFF AND CUSTOMERS
Firstly we’d just like to publicly thank our amazing team AND the local community for supporting us through these difficult times. This is only the end of the beginning, there is still a long way for us to go together.
We have taken the decision to not re-open immediately on Saturday 4 July. This is for the safety of our staff and customers.
Saturday was our busiest day of the week, and no one has been allowed a pint for over 3 months. This is on top of our team having to return to work to do everything differently so that we can keep everyone safe. We will open in the week or two after the 4 July when we can be confident we are doing it in the right way for our team members and customers.

Staff Hardship Fund
We don’t want any of our team to be suffering financially so, with the help of Diageo Brands (Guinness, Gordons, Tanqueray, and many more) we have set up a staff hardship fund to help get through this. Any of our staff can apply for cash payments or supermarket vouchers. Simply email James.Dolan@EverSoSensible.com
Stay safe out and we’ll see you soon.

Royal William IV
Situated in central Lincoln, in the riverside north east corner of Brayford Pool is The Royal William IV, dating back over 170 years in an area with a history going back considerably longer. Traces of late Iron Age occupation dating from the 1st century BC were noted during excavations in 1972. The Roman army took control of this part of “Lindum Colonia” in the mid-1st century AD, most likely to bring supplies in by water using the well developed water ways.
Today the Royal William IV is a traditional Lincolnshire pub with a great selection of beers & wines, serving classic pub food in a friendly atmosphere.
Ever So “Environmentally” Sensible
Climate change is a real threats to all our futures, we all need to start doing things differently before it is too late. As a business we actively take steps to be more sustainable. Whilst we can’t change everything immediately, we have made a start, see below.
Increasing “plant-based” food items on all our menus.
Reducing food waste throughout our sites.
Switched to eco-friendly straws, napkins, and toilet rolls.
Reviewed our waste recycling, separating our food waste, glass and cardboard.
Working with suppliers to reduce unnecessary packaging.
Switching all our Electric and Gas to a of 100% renewable energy supplier.
Began to change from gas cookers to electric induction cookers in our kitchens.
When water boilers need replacing these will become electric rather than gas.
Some of our sites even give their vegetable off-cuts away as animal feed!
Where possible, we are installing electric car charging points in our car parks. The MD now drives a fully electric car, other company vehicles are Hybrids.
We will keep looking for changes we can make now and in the future.
If you can suggest other practical and sensible action we can undertake please let us know 🙂
We are open…
12.00-10.30pm Sunday – Thursday
12.00-11.00pm Friday & Saturday
12.00-9.00pm Monday – Saturday
Sit Outside on the Brayford
Enjoy some of the best food and drink in town whilst taking in the great scenery of the Wharf. We have plenty of seating inside and outside that is socially distanced, so you can enjoy your favourite pub safely.
Since Corona virus we have had to change what we do and the way we work. It’s all a bit new to everyone right now and we have a lot to learn in order to keep our amazing team and customers safe. Our main focus is making sure everyone is back on their feet safely and we can do what we love most, serving you amazing food and drink whilst making you smile.
Rest assured once we are through this we will be back with more great events.
Keep well and keep smiling 🙂
