Recently stayed in Lincoln and visited the Tower Restaurant for a meal. We had been out all afternoon so needed to take the dog with us somewhere close and thought we could sit outside with her. A very polite member of staff informed us that they were dog friendly so we sat inside and had a fabulous 3 course meal... More

I got a voucher from travelzoo for two people so went for a birthday treat. Food was lovely but miniscule everything and bore no resemblance to the pic on here. No extra jug of hot water to top teapot up, no pots of cream or jam and scones were the width of the top of a finger. I would not... More

I went here Saturday evening with a group of friends for a pre hen night meal. I was really impressed with the quality of the food. The service was also excellent and we all agreed it was good value. I had the chicken for main with the king prawns, it was to die for. I will definitely be returning!

Just returned from the Algarve and craved a Roast dinner. Always love the "Tower" for Sunday lunch and yesterday met and exceeded my expectations. Perfect pink beef that melted in my mouth sandwiched between blue cheese ice cream and an Almond tart(a concession to my recent Holiday! Enough said!!!

After three weeks in the Cotswolds we were spoilt for good pub grub. The cold beef ciabata and fat chips hit the spot. As good as any so far. The staff were friendly and helpful. We sat out back soaking the sun. The tower is an old water tower so dont expect some historic site view. I noted it had... More

Booked for Sunday lunch following good recommendations. On arrival the place was very busy and it is an obvious choice for a Sunday lunch time pint for the locals. We were seated with a time constraint with no explanation but were happy with an hour and a half window to eat. Bread and flavoured butter arrived which we ate as... More
