Good standards all round

Attended for Sunday Lunch with our extended family. The children were well accommodated and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed the starter and main which was enough without being overfacing. Skipped the desert for calorific reasons but still a nice pleasant experience.

Very sad to say this place disappointed on several levels. Not the staff, they were all excellent. But the ambiance - so noisy we couldn't hear our table companions speak, as well in the restaurant as in the bar where it might be expected. The view I had hoped to show my guests wasn't there for a middle of the... More

My Husband and I ate here on a Wednesday and so took advantage of the steak night deal, 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £30. This deal was such good value as our steaks were delicious and cooked just as we had asked. The view from the window looks out towards the Cathedral and castle. As we were... More

A nice cocktail menu and the bar area was comfortable with a couple of small balconies overlooking the Brayford wharf (nice on a sunny afternoon). We were there for a Afternoon tea which was somewhat disappointing. Ordinary sandwiches, no choice of options. The scone was tasty and a good size, but served with a poor quality jam and whipped double... More

Find reviewing restaurants like this difficult as trip advisor puts all restaurants on an equal footing and it's really hard to compare a fine dining restaurant like this to a decent pub meal. The food here was excellent. It was cooked and presented and the service was very good. The atmosphere is also nice. My wife and I enjoyed our... More

Its ok, drinks expensive for the area, lack of seating and has an air of pretension. Better places to visit in Lincoln

Popped in here for a few drinks on floor 5 if the double tree hilton. Fab views. Selected cocktails are 2 for 1 on Thursdays and Fridays to 8pm. Great cocktails, much better than Revolution. Efficient, friendly and smart staff. Use the lift to the left a you enter the hotel. Takes you straight up to floor 5.

As regulars to the Electric Bar & Restaurant since it opened, my wife & I have always been impressed by the food, drinks, ambiance & most of all the Staff. The long serving Restaurant Manager, Matthew, left recently. This was disappointing as he had set the bar very high, looked after us (& others obviously) really well & was one... More
