The Linc gets its draught beer straight from the CUB brewery in Abbotsford. A tanker from the brewery calls in twice a week to fill up their tank. The beer is fresh and unpasteurised, it tastes marvellous, full of flavour. It's also cheaper than other...More

I dropped into the Lincolnshire Arms (better known locally as the Linc) for lunch today. Given a choice at the Bistro,, I went for the Senior's lunch, which was a few dollars cheaper than the standard lunch. I had a steak with green pep;per sauce....More

The Lincolnshire Arms, better known as the Linc, is on a prominent corner at the beginning of Keilor Road. The pub is well run and has benefited from a recent paint job. The dining room is popular and the local tradies like the sports bar....More

A family celebration at The Linc was an ordinary affair, with very average food and similarly ordinary service and all at rather high prices for a pub. Would I recommend it......no!

These type of pubs are not really my thing. Having said that, The Linc is kinda OK. I can't really rave about the atmosphere, because there isn't any. They have a couple of interesting beers on tap (besides the usual CUB suspects), and the meals...More
