If cheese is your thing, then this is the place to go! A great menu & lots of daily specials make it hard to choose just one dish! The staff are friendly & welcoming and it's not far from the High Street so very convenient.

My wife is vegetarian - so the excellent choice here was a bonus - it can be a struggle to find places that give a good selection for both of us. could not fault the place. Excellent macaroni cheese!

We had cheese with every course and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Paté to start, backed camembert and cheesecake for dessert. Superb value too with the 3 course set menu. The only disappointment is that the café is so small. Can be difficult to get a table during busy periods.

Our son treated us to a meal there as part of our Xmas present. The menu is quite varied although as the name suggests the main themes are cheese. The food was delicious and a good sized meal. The staff are great and do anything they can to make your visit one to remember.

There is a great choice and always a specials board. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and prices are sensible. Cheese does feature in many dishes but there... More

This little place is one of Lincoln's hidden gems. Small, friendly, with a constantly changing menu from locally sourced produce, it's usually quite busy. Quirky opening hours - mostly just lunchtimes and afternoons and you can't book in advance. Some won't like that, but it seems to keep the pretentious away in the most part. Stop in for lunch if...

Went to one of the Bistro Evenings. The Cod loin was to die for. The surroundings and staff are also very good. Highly recommended.
