Love this place

Visited Lincoln for the first time in ages and found the shop and then the cafe. Gorgeous food - I had the tartiflette, yummy, and my other half had a Croque Monsieur. Great prices, good portion sizes, great service. Definitely visiting again soon.

We were wary of calling due to the previous ban on children under 10 as this is really from the dark ages. However, we received a warm welcome and another customer enquired about bringing children in and it was explained that everyone was very welcome as long as they liked cheese ! The cafe had a nice atmosphere,recently extended, even... More

Beautiful food, and wonderful service. A real treat to have such an original concept in our city. Tucked away from the high street this is a must for a tasty lunch treat. If I could change one thing? The chairs, everything else is perfect.

We lived in Lincoln for 5 years or so in the nineties. Thankfully, Cheese Society wasn't around in those days, otherwise I'd quite likely have had a coronary by now. I like cheese...I REALLY like cheese, so this place hits the spot perfectly, if not the arteries. Far too many cheese-tastic options on the menu to list here (even the... More

Visited Cheese society cafe today, for a lunch time meal, following recommendation from a friend. Very impressed. Excellent service and wonderful food at very competitive prices, so pleased to witness a restaurant that serves its customers so well without the need to charge exorbitant prices in a tourist area. Not the largest of cafes but that all adds to the... More
