5th floor overlooking the Brayford Pool at the top of the Doubletree Hotel and next to the room acting as Marco Pierre Whites restaurant is this cocktail bar. Top class cocktails, with 2 for £9 up to 8pm Friday and 1am on Thursday, generally about £7.50 each. Open to all. Highly recommended to start or end your night.

Wife's 50th birthday celebration and we wanted to celebrate in style so we went to the acclaimed steak restaurant with the MPW brand. What more needs to be said? How about this: Mr White should be ashamed to have his name associated with this place on tonight's showing. I did not hold him in particularly high regard before this and... More

Cocktail heaven. Not much here you can't get, but take out a second mortgage! Don't even want to know how much we spentt. Still, capped off a great night and overlooking the waterfront drinking pink fizz from jars can't be beaten. Do it, you know it makes sense!

We have used this bar a few times before and I would have to describe it as average, I think it's trying to be upmarket, but not sure if that works. Service is ok if no one else in, drinks are over priced for what they are, and it really feels like a case of "please come in and spend... More

On my most recent visit here, we opted for one of the weekly meal deals which was fantastic value and certainly no compromise on quality. The 3 courses for £29 and half a bottle of wine each was fantastic value. The food portions were not massively affected to normal, and the taste and presentation was superb. I would always recommend... More

Went for a Sunday dinner back in August with a date. Food was fantastic, cocktails were spot on and overall service was brilliant. Elly (I think that's how you spell it) could not have done more for us. Warm, welcoming, attentive, and always smiling. Safe to say I will definitely be coming back again soon

This is a lovely bar to enjoy a well made reasonably priced cocktail whilst enjoying the views over the Brayford and sitting enjoying the sun. There is a wide range of cocktails along with a wide variety of other drinks. The service was good and efficient and very friendly and there is comfortable seating inside and out. The food available... More

Having read a lot about this place, popped in whilst in Lincoln at the weekend. Had a lovely glass of white wine on the balcony with my wife overlooking the waterside. Very pleasant indeed and will come back for a visit to the restaurant next time we come to Lincoln

Visited the bar with my brother. It's quite small inside but has a great outlook over the Brayford. My favourite cocktail, a Manhatten, was one of the best I've had - especially nice to be offered a choice of sweet, perfect or dry Mahatten. Was also given a choice of garnish, went for the traditional maraschino cherry. Top cocktail place.

Thank Jamie W
