It is years since I have been in Lincoln but yesterday I came back for the day with a friend. The pie shop was recommended to me by the TA forum and quite rightly so. We had lunch there and loved it! The building itself is a gem and we were greeted very warmly when we arrived without a reservation.... More

Having been there a number of times over the year, my wife and I entertained one of our sons and our daughter in law at Browns. Two of our party had the pie of the day (three bird). I had the steak and kidney pie. Those that had first courses and/or puddings enjoyed every item served. The service was courteous... More

Good food in a friendly atmosphere. They serve all kinds of pies along with other dishes. I have been there several times and never been disappointed.

We have been before and had some excellent meals. Disappointed this time, steak and kidney seemed more kidney than steak while the house red was truly awful. Go for the deals. It is expensive otherwise.

Huge portions! Very well cooked food, with some veggie options. Twice cooked cheese soufflé really excellent, as was the chicken liver parfait, and my husband wolfed down his black pudding and three bird pie (which had the lightest, tallest lid of puff pastry ever). No room for dessert. Only criticism? Chicken liver parfait served not with Melba toast, but two... More
