My friends and I enjoyed a superb three course meal and a glass of wine courtesy of a Travelzoo offer. That's the way to fill a restaurant on a cold and wet February evening. The food was lovely and the service attentive. We were able to choose anything from the main menu or the specials board. I would just ask... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and only return because the food is so nice. However, each time we come, the service is dire - slow and Inattentive. We tend to come at Sunday lunchtime with children and our parents. We came last Sunday - a table of 8 at 12.30pm. We arrived slightly early so that we... More

Used to come to Lincoln alot in my youth and this place was always a treat - especially when it was located a few doors down the Hill and they served Old Brewery Bitter by Sam Smiths. To give credit where it'd due it is still here and the level of consistency is still apparent. The decor is looking a... More

I popped in for a pint while my wife was window shopping and found the beer to be good and I also liked the look of the menu,so on the following Monday evening (around 21.15 or so) we decided to eat in the Wig & Mitre bar (the upstairs restaurant was closed). After a glance at the clock we were... More

We enjoyed a three course evening meal and found the service very good. The choice on the menu and quality of food was very good, in addition everything arrived hot. The only negative observations are that tables are a little close and the room lacks some character - with decor, on close inspection, looking decidedly tired and in need of... More

Ate here consecutive nights because we so enjoyed it. New Spring menu plus specials board. Lamb, fish and veggie meals were all excellent.

First visit to the Wig and Mitre after having it recommended. Booked a table for 4 the morning of the visit with no problem. We arrived on time and were asked if we wanted to eat upstairs in the restaurant or downstairs in the pub - I elected for upstairs but because there were no other diners up there we... More

Enjoyed a lovely supper with my daughters here; we keep come back to The Wig, tried and tested old favorite! The breaded belly pork and Black pudding was srummy, and the Oh so naughty Pork and Chorizio burger in a brioche bun exceeded all expectations, can't believe we managed a pudding after that lot, but I am so pleased we...

We ate here valentines evening having booked a couple of weeks earlier, which as it was so busy I am glad we had. The staff were all very friendly and service at the bar and in the restaurant was quick and efficient, slightly too efficient in the restaurant in fact, as as soon as we had finished our starter the...
