Fantastic Service! Fantastic Food! New Favorite in Lincoln

To start the evening we went straight to the Bar for a cocktail made by Gemma which was delicious. Me and my daughter then visited the Electric Restaurant for the first time and we were very pleasantly surprise!

My wife and I enjoyed our meal overall - mains and puddings delightful but wife's starter of goats cheesecake was a bit bland. Good value and ambience

Greeted by a stylish and contemporary entrance of the Hotel, nobody on Reception but you make your way to the lifts and head for The Electric Bar on the top floor. The bar area has ample seating and is well lit. The square bar is for all to see how each cocktail is made, the range on the menu is... More

The cocktails were amazing, especially The Electric Cocktail (which was recommended by the lovely bar staff). Our waiters were Simon, Anna and Chloe, they were all really sweet and attentive. I had a pigs cheek for starter, poussin for main (better than nandos) and the apple delight for dessert, I've never had food like it before. I'd definitely recommend the... More

a lovely little cocktail bar on the top floor of the Hilton. cocktails were great and mot expensive. no dress code of any sort which lowers its exclusive feel - beanie hats are not what you expect in a swish cocktail bar!

My partner and I ordered some steak which was some of the best i've eaten in a restaurant. The view was fantastic and the service was top-notch. A little on the expensive side but well worth it I think.

I visited with my partner and I had a brilliant time. The service was amazing and I felt very welcomed - nothing was too much trouble. I ordered the duck and I feel it was one of the best meals i've ever had. The quality for the price is outstanding. Will be going again.

Visit this bar quite often (sometimes as a large group). Always go here for pre-drinks but then end up staying most of the night as we never want to leave! Lovely staff, amazing drinks, great setting :) Every cocktail I've had here (which is a fair few!) is fantastic!
