This has a great atmosphere and although we did not eat here the meals that were brought out looked great and it gets very busy which is a very good sign. At the top of Steep Hill it is a great place to recover, they do not provide Oxygen but the great beer does as good a job.

We recently returned to visiting the Wig after a break of a year or so. The specials became just a bit disappointing sometimes and the menu didn't change very often and we had worked our way through it so we decided to give it a break. I am delighted to say that all that is in the past and the... More

Towards the summit of the aptly named Steep Hill, this pub is worth the climb. We dropped in initially for a pint, however, the menu read well, as did the specials board and other people eating appeared to have well prepared food of a good standard. We both chose a beef dish; excellently prepared and incredibly tender. The real ales... More

I booked a pre-funeral lunch for what, in the end, proved to be 28 people. Throughout the process of numbers and food orders changing (even on the morning) the staff were amazing. The excellent food was served as soon as we were seated and we made it to the funeral in good time. Truly effecient and friendly service is rarity... More

I last ate here in 1975. It has not lost its charm since then and the menu has improved considerably. I do remember the pint of Ruddles County then being a revelation. Sic transit Gloria Mundi. I had the special menu, which was well put together to give a range of choice. The soufflé was tasty, creamy leeks and flavoursome... More

This pub/restaurant oozes charm the minute you step into it. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunchtime toasted ciabattas and were served by pleasant staff, shame we were only visiting for the day as an evening there would be welcome in able to sample the excellent menu.

I enjoyed lunch here in the summer and then went back in the evening for a few drinks. The food is fantastic and they have a set course lunch menu which is excellent value. I enjoyed crab pate served with a dill salsa and Melba toast, followed by tempura cod with potato salad and a Beurre Blanc sauce with green... More

We pre-booked and found the place to be welcolming if missing a strong management presence, e.g. a party of drinkers from "Effingham college" should have been dealt with. The food was top rate and the service admirable but the young lass serving was run off her feet. Management please!

We were visiting Lincoln overnight and had our dog with us. The weather was bad, so sitting outside was not an option and we were starving and looking for somewhere to eat where we could take our dog inside. After looking online we found the Wig & Mitre located on Steep Hill just around the corner from where we were... More

A sweet little place in Lincoln we went as a family whilst visiting. Food was delicious but pricey for what it was they do not really cater for children but mine were happy to have soup and fries.
