Although I don't eat out very often in Lincoln, as I now live in London, I always make an effort to have a meal at The Tower restaurant when I am visiting friends. It's a lovely place to dine and I have never been disappointed, despite only dining there once or twice a year. The staff are always friendly, helpful... More

We were in Lincoln celebration my sons graduation and just stumbled across "The Tower" and booked to come back that evening. Food was exceptional but more so the service from Adam was outstanding! He is an absolute credit to you and a fantastic image for your restaurant etc. If we lived in Lincoln we would certainly be back.

My wife and I took my mother for Sunday lunch. The restaurant has a nice ambiance but our server struggled to crack a smile. Food was good but not great. Two of us had roast beef which was cooked "pink" and was tasty. The roast potatoes were a bit dry as was the Yorkshire pudding. The cheese board is worth... More

Visited here on a Friday night, solely chosen because of the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. However, we were surprised that the restaurant wasn't full. The menu had something for everyone, using local produce where possible. It was tricky what to have, but I think everyone on my table managed to try as much as we could. All... More

Lovely Sunday Lunch, cooked to perfection. Generous portions of freshly cooked veg. Very reasonable prices for the food and wine. We are now planning on trying an evening meal there.

Now been here twice and had an absolutely fantastic time both times. Wonderful food and a great varied menu to choose from. We had three courses and loved every one of them and the tasty little amuse bouches that were brought out between. Service was also fantastic, no long waits, very attentive and worked very hard to ensure we had... More

Excellent Hotel / Restaurant / Pub to stay in, have a meal or just go for a drink. Good friendly atmosphere and great location in the historic heart of Lincoln. Would highly recommend.

I couldn't fault this restaurant. The food was some of the best I've ever tasted and the service was fantastic. Only downside is that booking seems pretty much essential on a Saturday night; we saw a few other couples be turned away and felt very smug and thankful that we'd made reservations.

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
