Pub History

This Wetherspoon pub recalls the early 11th-century king of Denmark, who set out to conquer England from Gainsborough - where he was later murdered.

In 1013, Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, sailed up the River Trent and camped his armies at Gainsborough. Leaving his son Canute in charge here, he proceeded to conquer the country. However, a few weeks after his arrival, Sweyn was murdered at Gainsborough, in the early part of 1014.
