Been going to the tower for a while and the food and atmosphere have always been spot on, but lay night the chef took it to another level. The stall last night was one of the best we have ever had. Smooth, buttery and cooked to perfection. We don't usually send praise bank to the kitchen but last night was... More

Good quality produce, presented well at reasonable prices. My wife had a soufflé from the bar menu which she raved about the whole afternoon. Service was efficient and friendly without being over familiar. They were quite full in the bar area so they simply offered us a table in the restaurant. The bar menu offered a good range to suit...

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here, lovely restaurant, relaxed, food excellent . The only minor criticism is finding someone to tell us what the soup of the day was...... Good prices and piping hot delicious food

So glad we found this gem. The food was excellent. We enjoyed an anniversary day in Lincoln & was glad we booked this restaurant. Everything was to a high standard & we shall visit again

3 of us had the afternoon tea with prosecco. Service was very good and we did not feel rushed. Sandwiches and scones were delicious but the cake offering was a little disappointing compared to other similar places. I could have eaten more and my friends went on to have a cheese board in the next place we visited.

booked a table for 4 recently, on recommendation, never been before, pleasantly surprised. the food was good, if my medium rare fillet was a bit over cooked, with a good steak and wine offer. Wine is reasonably rather than eye-wateringly priced, good selection of ales and beers in the bar

Having not made any bookings for a restaurant on a Saturday night, my partner and I stopped into the Tower Hotel for a drink to figure out where to go. It then poured rain so on chance, we asked if they had meals on. Yes but only in the restaurant and fortunately they had room for 2. What a great... More

Having booked a room in the hotel I heard good reviews of the good. I reserved a table the night before and was pleasantly surprised to get a table. We didn't want a starter but was presented with complimentary breads and dips that were very tasty. For our main I had duck with a potato gratin and my husband had... More

Myself and my friend stopped off for lunch here. We sat out in the garden area which was a little sun trap and nice and clean. The food was great, service was a little slow but the staff were very polite. Will definitely return!

A group of 20 of us went on a Wednesday for afternoon tea. The teas were delicious and the food was brilliant. Sandwiches were all fresh with soft bread and tasty fillings. Scones were fresh and still warm! Macaroons were very nice with homemade lemon curd centre. £12.50 pp wasn't bad for what we got. Everyone had more than enough... More
