Guy Martin buys Lincolnshire village pub

This story is over

Guy Martin, Lincolnshire’s own daredevil, has bought the ‘picture postcard’ Kirmington village pub Marrowbone & Cleaver, which will be run by his sister Sally.

Guy, who in the past year has set a new speed record in a Wall of Death challenge and attempted to break the world speed record on a hydrofoil on Lincoln’s Brayford, had grown up in the village and has a lot of ties to the 245-year-old pub.

The pub has undergone major renovations to depict the history of Kirmington using stain-glass windows, murals, historic pictures, rare memorabilia and pictures of Guy Martin’s Passion for Speed show.

The pub website states that both Guy and Sally “wanted to make the pub a home from home for locals and guests that join them with roaring open fires, wooden beams, 166 squadron memorial stained glass, Guys Wall of Death and cheery smile from everyone that works there.”

Guy has also worked directly with Lincolnshire brewers Batemans to create a unique blend for the pub called Skull Spanners Beer.

Sally, who will run the pub, has said that it will host a range of events including bike rides.

Sarah Miles, Partner in Commercial Property for Langleys, who assisted in the acquisition of the pub, said: “We are pleased to have worked on this acquisition and are glad to have been able to exchange quickly pre-auction to secure it.”
