Very good but de-clutter!

My understanding is that this is quite a new hotel, bar and restaurant but one with big ambitions to be the best in the Lincoln area - the location is great and the views to the cathedral are excellent.

Can't comment about the restaurant at 4-5pm it was empty. The bar however was what I was interested in. I'd been here before several years previously & sadly not much has changed. Is it staffed with uni students, so what you might say! Well, this is not a university bar and it's the only hotel bar so should cater to... More

Whilst a little pricey, the bar was exclusive and not full of chavs, the view from the balcony is great

We only used it for drinks so cant comment on the food,but they were exspensive.The bar was nice and modern with tables outside and being 5 floors up you got some good views (especially from the restaurant - which we went through ).

One of the best restaurants in Lincoln, offering high quality food, superb service in a nice setting. Everythng is cooked well and offers a good selection of innovative but well thought out dishes, including local produce. The dine with wine is amazing value and cuts no corners on the quality. Highly recommended.

The menu promised different choices from the more traditional offerings on offer elsewhere, and didn't disappoint. The 5th floor location was excellent, and the inclusive menu good value. Desserts were particularly well thought out and enjoyed.

The food was fantastic and good value at 27 pounds for 3 courses plus wine. View is wonderful. We went on a Tuesday night so it was a bit quiet but the staff were lovely and the ford impeccable.

Took advantage of two steaks and a bottle of wine for less than £30! As this restaurant tops the Hilton in the Brayford waterfront area of Lincoln you would expect some style and charm.
