Fantastic quality, and great service

Slightly delayed review as had an amazing lunch here over the Christmas period with my family. The quality of the food was second to none and the service from the lovely young waitress was great ( sorry I've forgotten her name ). Would highly recommend to anyone!

We stayed here for a couple of weeks when we first moved to Lincoln, so in a strange way the Hilton feels like home. I returned recently for a lunch with friends and had forgotten the high prices and small portions. That being said, I still think this restaurant and it's fantastic view are worth it. I had the cod... More

Set on the top floor of the Doubletree hotel at Brayford Pool this bar has great views of the water and the boats. It is a smart bar selling coctails as well as other drinks. There is outdoor seating with heaters as well as comfortable seating inside. You can access the bar from the "glass elevator" outside if you are... More

I had a baby shower organised by my friends as a surprise party for me at this lovely restaurant. Had a private room called Viewing Galery (view over the Lincoln City and Cathedral ). Table setting was beautiful, nice and pinky (it's a girl), plenty of pots of tea, mixture of sandwiches and cakes. All very delicious! ! Highly recommend.

Both main courses we had were very tasty and well presented with the added touch of being served fresh warm bread. Would definitely recommend.

Incredible place for cocktails, GREAT view of the Brayford! Really recommend cocktail club on a Thursday night, so cheap but so good! Really good for a girls' night, a date or just a sophisticated evening.

Overpriced, small portions, and just a general lack of the 'wow' factor. Don't know how this place has won awards, but it was clearly good and some point. Let's just hope it gets back on track soon.

Another great visit to the Electric Bar between Christmas and New Year and it was just as good as the first visit. Lovely food - especially the Chicken Terrine and Fillet Steak - wonderful. Very good service from a lovely waitress who was very pleasant, attentive and really helpful. Would definitely recommend.
