we had a brilliant meal here on Friday evening. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had starters that were presented in the most beautiful way. Main courses were yummy and for pudding we chose the cheese board. Well done to all the staff the evening was superb.

We booked Sunday lunch as several of our friends highly recommend the restaurant. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and is not very large, it started to get very busy around 1.30pm, so my advice would be to book in advance. There is no hotel/restaurant parking, but, there are two pay and display carparks in the area. One opposite the hotel,... More

Wonderful attentive service, very good food. There's a hotel above the restaurant and a busy hotel bar next to the restaurant but you would never know when seated at the restaurant tables - you could be in a totally different place. There's a very different relaxing atmosphere in there compared to the busy bar area, where of course you can... More

went to The Tower with a group of friends for dinner. I chose the pigeon breast and duck leg pressing to start, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese soufflé and then carrot cake 3 ways. Overall I found the food disappointing and mainly under seasoned. Nothing really lived up to the promise the menu gave. The starter was bland and could have been... More

We had this restaurant recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The room had a nice ambiance and the staff were attentive without being overbearing. We went with two friends and they were also impressed with the quality of the food. We had the three courses and we were delighted with all the different choices made within the group,... More

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.
