Popped in again for a meal for two and took advantage of the steak offer. A huge Chateaubriand aged in house for 35 days (we got shown the fridges) with selection of sides and sauces for £50. We would happily come back and treat ourselves to this more often - can't wait for the new menu!

We went there for Sunday lunch for a family get together, and we're very impressed with the food, service and the whole atmosphere. The car very was excellent, lots of choice, and they even had gluten free Yorkshire puddings, which I thought was a lovely thought.

So good we had to visit twice! Quality food at a good price, the chocolate cheese cake with pistachio ice cream and the grilled plaice is a must. A special thanks to Jessica and the rest of the staff who looked after us and we're very knowledgeable of Lincoln, where to go and what to see. Thank you!

We booked a table for 17 people last week as part of our family celebrations and we were very pleased with all they did for us. The service was excellent and so was the food. Good choices and very well priced. It was all so very good and the family thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening.
