I had the £29.99 menu which includes half a bottle of wine. I had the pigs cheek for starter which sounds a bit gross but is actually really nice. For a main I had Sirloin steak which was cooked as I had asked and was of good quality. I get a bit annoyed when sauces are charged extra and can... More

Thank you for your recent review of our restaurant. I do apologise for the wait on your main courses on your table but as you dined with another 11 people unfortunately it does take a little longer to plate all the mains up than a smaller table of 2 or 4 for example. We always kindly ask to be patient... More

We booked a table in advance and also emailed in our menu choices as we only had approximately an hour for a working lunch as we all had meetings to get to at 3pm. We booked the table for 1.30pm but actually arrived today at approximately 1.20pm. The restaurant had our table ready but claimed they had not received our... More

Such a disappointing evening meal mainly because of the lengthy wait for service. Over 40 minutes for the starter and then over an hour for the mains! Even complaining to the restaurant manager made no difference, he just blamed it on the chefs saying it was a new menu, rather an unprofessional approach i thought. It seemed like the restaurant...

This review is for the bar only. On a night out with a group of friends we decided to start the evening with some cocktails and chose this bar. The glass lift to the top floor is amazing with fabulous views. The bar was very busy when we arrived, eventually one of my friends got served and although I was... More

We chose the electric restaurant for a late Sunday lunch as they serve their lunch menu until 5pm. The table had the most wonderful view of the Cathedral especially as dusk fell and the floodlights illuminated the magnificent building. The meal was excellent and reasonably priced. We had the lamb which was cooked to perfection and came with an enormous... More

Having booked afternoon tea in advance (12th November) ready for 23rd November, we were greeted with a lunch menu and surprise when we said we were there for afternoon tea. We were eventually served our sandwiches, one of our party being vegetarian had limited choice having not been asked if there was any preferences. The bread was rather dry and... More

We had booked afternoon tea. We were asked to leave credit card details on booking as everything is freshly prepared, sandwiches cakes and scones. How disappointing to realise they had not prepared anything for us and without admitting to making a mistake cobbled together a few sandwiches and some cakes which looked rather sad. At almost £16 it was a... More

Despite living close to Lincoln this was my first visit to The Electric Bar. On arrival a lift takes you to the fifth floor, where the bar has a view over Brayford Pool in Lincoln. This area of Lincoln by the university has become increasing trendy over the passing years, with a growing number of bars, chain restaurants and hotels.... More
