I love going to Doddington Hall Cafe as they always have an excellent range of naughty cakes, Scones and drinks, Fish and chips are very good. My only complaint is sometimes I order a meal deal when short on time which includes a Filled Roll, a packet of piper Crisps and coleslaw all for £5.50 which is ok but the... More

I called in here with my daughter and husband on a visit to the farm shop. We have been here numerous times and have enjoyed eating in the cafe. Never yet eaten in the restaurant. You order at the counter and any thing hot is brought to your table direct from the kitchen. We had frittata and coleslaw, ham salad... More

Went here for the Sample menu with my other half a couple of months ago and it was amazing. Excellent Service and great food. Even the company was great ;-)

We usually eat in the cafe at Doddington Hall which is always really good but we decided to have lunch in the main restaurant with visiting members of our family. This was a lovely experience with super food, excellent service in the most peaceful surroundings. We would certainly recommend it to friends and family. Booking is essential in the restaurant.

Dining as a family with my son and mother, I ordered a Tuna Nicoise ( nice taste but just a few tinned tuna flakes and no potatoes at all... More

A popular destination most Lincoln locals are in the know. I have only eaten at the cafe for lunch and it was very tasty with a nice outdoor seating area. I would defiantly recommend Doddington Hall as the perfect place to take a friend for coffee and cake! In addition to the restaurant, the Interiors store ' India Jane' is... More

My husband and I both enjoyed lunch as well as coffee and homemade pastries on several occasions. The food is fresh, beautifully presented, and as expected delicious, served in very comfortable and warm surroundings by a very gracious staff. We ordered the quiche served on a bed of five different salads for lunch. Looking forward to our next visit!

I go frequently for homemade cake and coffee with friends. For special occasions we eat in the restaurant -the magnificent seven on a Saturday night- this is hard to beat if you are happy to try lots of different tastes. The food is superb.
