Whilst visiting Lincoln this weekend we took the ghost walk (which is really good), towards the end we walked past Saffron, when it had finished about 8.30, we asked if they had a table, luckily they did. The staff were very welcoming and took our order, we did have to wait but there was a very large party in the... More

However, we decided to try ti ourselves. Really happy... More

As some of the reviews for this restaurant were negative we were a little unsure but decided to book and see for ourselves. Really happy we did. The waiting staff were very friendly and attentive and the service was good. We had a first class meal in relaxing surroundings and would recommend for a good evening out.

Have been coming to Saffron on and off since it first opened in 2007 or 2008 I think! The menu and premise has remained unchanged since it's inception. Combined with a location that potentially lends itself to more high end dining it has undoubted but unachieved potential. As garnered from previous reviews it has at times fallen short and more!!...

This restaurant is a firm family favourite. The food is always excellent with a wide range of choices. Also if you ask for ingredients to be omitted or added they will accommodate if they can. If you are going as a group of 6-8 ask for the back room, it is like having your own private dining room. Good value... More

Waited over an hour and then presented with food that was more like a Tesco microwave meal than a restaurant meal.

We arrived in a group of 8 on a Saturday evening and hadn't booked a table but still we were very warmly welcomed and looked after, though we had to wait for good 20 mins which is understandable because the restaurant was full and very busy and it smelled absolutely delicious. We were also served drinks there by the ever... More
