I've been meaning to visit here for a LONG time now as I've heard so many good things. FINALLY managed to visit and it was every bit as great as I'd heard! I had a cheese slate, choosing from the seasonal selection and it was just fantastic! If you're a cheese fan-this is your nirvana! Great, friendly service too! I... More

Amazing if you like cheese, and I do! Terrific fondu made with all the right ingredients. Very rich and probably a million calories, but wow, what a great dish. Fabulous to share as I did.

I have never had a bad experience in this restaurant, it is one of my faves. Always clean and staff always friendly. the food is home cooked and freshly prepared and you can tell. If you haven't eaten here you must go. It is definitely one of Lincolns finest.

We had lunch at this busy and bustling cafe on Saturday afternoon. The staff were polite, helpful with cheese choices and enthusiastic in their work. We shared a four cheese platter and our choices proved to be delicious. So much so that we left the cafe and headed around the corner to the society's deli cheese shop. If you have... More

Came here with friends on a Saturday lunchtime. It was really busy but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table and the staff were really helpful and friendly as soon as we walked in the door. One of my friends is coeliac and there were loads of gluten free choices and they even bake their own... More

A three course Bistro night turned out to be not only great value for money but also very good food. A taster of Cheese Stuffed Pepperdew Peppersand a glass of Berry Bros Champagne set the scene for a great evening. Mini baked cheese soufflé was a bit flat but tasty nonetheless and a really good cheesy flavour ( what else... More

If you enjoy your cheese, there is no alternative - just explore and discover all sorts of tastes! I'd definitely keep to the cheese options though as this is what makes the place special! Don't forget to explore in the shop too!
