Have eaten in the restaurant twice recently although on each occasion only two of us in the restaurant. However, the food and service were good. Last Friday, went with a friend and went up to the restaurant with no indication that it was closed. When no one appeared, went to the bar where there was a notice asking for orders... More

We visited here for breakfast on a trip to lincoln for a couple of nights. My partner had the full english breakfast, which he said was very good. Myself being veggie, had poached eggs on toast,equally as good. When i asked for another coffee, they gave me a refill at no extra charge. Very friendly pub, we would definitely return... More

Very nice pub in the heart of Lincoln. We only had beer and cask ale at that, and a very good choice there was too, so cannot comment on the food. The building is classic, the inside quirky and the atmosphere great. I would go back!

Stopped off for lunch in the bar area. Beautiful pink thinly sliced Roast Beef. Tasty selection of vegetables and proper roast potatoes. I really enjoyed this. Coffee was good too. Would recommend.

The wig and mitre was recommended by a friend, and I am glad we went. The food and service was excellent. They also served a red wine from a Lincolnshire winery, which was very palatable.

The food seerved is truly excellent whether you have a starter with a glass of wine, coffee or the full celebratory meal accompanying wines and other beverages. A great... More

We visited this lovely restaurant for a family meal after a wedding blessing. I cannot praise the food and service enough. The cheese soufflé was beautiful and the beef melted in your mouth. A real gem of a place to visit, well worth a visit for a hearty meal. Will visit again soon. Excellent!!
