Wonderful food and setting

I have heard a great deal about Brown's since moving to Lincoln last year. I decided to pay a visit today for lunch after some sightseeing. The greeting and service from the staff was lovely and friendly. Being a pie specialist, I had to have the Game Pie which was lovely and didn't disappoint... read more

I have been here a few times and I also had a leaving party here. There were 32 of us at function and we pre ordered the food. The staff did a fantastic job getting the food to all the tables and everyone left very happy at the end of the night. It's not a large place but they did... More

Cannot remember how many times we have been! It's sometimes very very busy & the tables are close together but that's my only grumble! We go for excellent traditional food, the menu is fairly small but there's always some specials on too! Make sure you leave room for dessert! We had a small issue with our order this time but...

This place is a real gem, especially is you get a table in the cellar. Great atmosphere. We had starter of haggis, fabulous. Followed by the chicken pie, massive portions!!, and the belly pork. Great quality and fabulous taste!

What can I say?! The food is amazing. Great portion sizes and so tasty! The service is excellent too and I think the prices are reasonable, I had the cheese pie with a puff pastry lid. It's like a cheese fondue, so lovely. I really recommend it. If you're not a fan of puff pastry you can have shortcrust instead.

I had decided to give Brown's ago despite some less than pleasant experiences some of my friends had told me about. Perhaps I'm too naive. Not only is the selection of food horribly plain. It was just so bad. The pork in my the pie i ordered (you can't go wrong with a pork pie right...?) was dawrfed by the... More
