A new tenant has been found for the former O’Neill’s pub in Cleethorpes.
North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC), working in partnership with Engie, has confirmed a deal with an operator has now been reached to bring the vacant pub back into use under a five year lease.
Councillor Peter Wheatley, portfolio holder for Regeneration, Assets, Skills and Housing said: “We bought the Grant Street pub last May as it plays a part in the long-term plans for the resort’s regeneration.
“Since then we’ve been working with our regeneration partner Engie to consider offers to lease the premises.
“We must follow a process of due diligence in any property transaction.
“This can take some time but we’re pleased to say we now have a tenant in place and the pub will be brought back into use.”
Lawrence Brown, partner at Scotts Property LLP, who were the letting agents, added: “We’re very pleased to have found a tenant to occupy the former O’Neill’s pub on a short-term lease.
“Sitting at the entrance to the resort, the pub will be a great addition to the resort and we’re looking forward to seeing the doors open very soon.”
The council does not have any further details about when the pub will reopen and is not in a position to reveal the name of the tenant at the time of writing.
