Grantham Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) chairman Rob Hamnett-Day, who attended the opening evening, said: "I am so pleased to see one of the branch pubs reopening with such a keen manager in Lewis, he really does want to take the pub forward. Going on the interest on the first evening and the quality of the real ale he was serving this bar will surely do well for itself."

The pub has remained under the same management. Mr Hamnett-Day said the business had closed temporarily because of health reasons.

The Grade II listed building was built around 1650 and was originally named The Old Red Lion. It was later renamed after Sir John Houblon, one of the main landowners in the area and the first governor of the Bank of England.

CAMRA say that 378 pubs shut down permanently between July and December last year in England, Scotland and Wales, representing more than 14 closures a week.
