Lunch at The Wig & Mitre

This was a busy Saturday lunch time but the landlady took it all in her stride. We found a nice seat in the window and the food was very good. The staff all very efficient and friendly.

Although the Wig and Mitre looks like an ordinary pub its food is a cut above standard pub fare. It's also unusual in choosing its own wines which are bottled at source under the pub's name. We had a delicious and well presented meal which was piping hot and far better than one might have expected. We had a bottle... More

Simply put, a fab place to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family. Plus their loyalty scheme is a great bonus.

We recently visited this restaurant for lunch with friends and it was dreadful. They advertise all day dining, but there was obviously no one who understood food in the kitchen at 3pm. Only one of the four meals was 'not bad', the rest were very poor. One meal was chicken which was lukewarm, - unforgiveable!. Another was battered plaice which... More

I am very sorry you were so disappointed, all our kitchen staff are trained both at college and on - the - job, they do know about food and usually it shows through. We are proud of what we do, we know we are only as good as the last plate of food served and the last smile a guest... More

Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner you will get a great meal at this Lincoln watering hole. This is a fantastic pub come restaurant. It serves meals all day and has a great selection of beers and wine. Downstairs is a drop in bar and eatery and you can sit in a corner and enjoy anything on the menu.... More

After walking up the Steep Hill - no easy feat - this pub at the top is the most welcome sight in Lincoln for a rest and a good pint!! A nice, clean pub, good atmosphere.

Nice bar with 3 sitting areas downstairs. Not sure what is upstairs. Good quality food at reasonable prices. Appeared to attract a mixture of locals and tourists. We visited midweek and it was busy which is always a good sign. Decent choice of real ale on tap as well.

On our third visit, we ate upstairs in the restaurant. The servers were very attentive. The food was delicious. The lamb was the best we've ever had and that's saying a lot.

I regularly eat here and at another of their pubs and have always been satisfied with the quality and service. This visit was an exception, and I hope not to be repeated experience. Whilst not wanting to be ageist, there seemed to be no staff over the age of 19 in the whole place. Sometimes a little seniority helps with... More
