Here at the Tower Restaurant our menus are written according to the season. We feel this captures the very best produce available at the time and ensure quality and freshness of the dishes we can offer to you.Head chef Darren Rogan and his team are constantly striving to achieve perfection in his eclectic menu. He relishes being creative and pushing the boundaries of gastronomy with different flavour combinations and ever evolving cooking techniques. We believe that dining out should be a hassle-free experience for all, and therefore we have Vegan, Coeliac and lactose intolerant menus at the ready. Should you have any other dietary requirements please do not hesitate to contact us.Booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

This Restaurant was recommended by friends as a restaurant with high quality food, prepared and presented to a very high standard. They have eaten here several times before and indeed dined with us on this occasion. Unfortunately, the dining experience didn't live up to their previous visits and our expectations. Whilst the food was average it was not to the... More

We first ate here when we stayed at the hotel upstairs for my birthday 2011. We realised the restaurant was highly regarded and decided on it for my birthday meal. Then it was the meal of the year! So on a return visit to Lincoln, we decided to go for Sunday lunch (the hotel was booked up so we couldn't... More

Spent a lovely afternoon having afternoon tea at the Tower, it was delicious, everything fresh and plentiful. A good choice of teas to accompany the lovely cakes and sandwiches.... And of course the added prosecco. Thanks to the staff for the service too, a very enjoyable afternoon. 😀

We booked this restaurant as we were staying in the hotel and knew we would be arriving late. This was a stroke of good luck! The service was thorough and friendly. Lemon and lime in the tap water was a nice touch. Very good range of well presented dishes and a tremendous cheese board. Good range of wines by the... More

We booked a table of 8 for a works get together on Thurs 6th August. The staff hid away a large present, flowers and a cake for us and brought them out as soon as we asked. The food was delicious especially the rib eye steak and all meals were bought out together and piping hot. Special thanks to our... More

Went here today as the location we wanted to go to was closed! To be honest, wasn't expecting too much, but have to say it was absolutely excellent! Nicely decorated dining room and outside area at the back with immaculate and nicely decorated toilets! All that said, the food - even though we only had the "Lunchtime Menu" for £12... More
