Relaxed atmosphere. I felt our mains could have done with a bit more seasoning, however, they were presented beautifully. We had sticky toffee pudding which was divine. Good choice of meals at very reasonable prices.

We visited again with friends who had not been here before. We all had the chateaubriand and no one was disappointed. There had been price rise since we last went but I still felt that the shared meal at £50 for two was good value...More

We didn’t know about the Stag’s head until my brother visited from Birmingham and recommended it. On Newport in Ljncoln next to the church, the pub has ample parking (which is a godsend in the uphill area of Lincoln) and only a short walk from...More

The Stags Head is under new management, and we now serve locally sourced, fresh food. We have two menus: daylight for the classics and lunchtime offerings and candlelight for the more adventurous and evening diners. We also have a daily specials board to showcase some of our food. We serve from5pm until 930pm Tuesday to Friday, and Saturday with a carvery on a Sunday from 12pm until 6pm (service hours subject to change). We recommend booking as we do get very busy and have limited seating. We also boast a function suite for upto 70 people - we have buffet menus which can be tailored to suit your needs and can cater for most events. Alongside the function suite, our cathedral restaurant can hold upto 40 people for smaller events.
