Seven families members went for a mid week lunch for a family celebration. The food was excellent, we had a smart young waitress who was very polite. Food was pre ordered earlier and drinks were ordered and brought to the table. Each course was served with short intervals between. However, once a course was served the waitress never came back...

Went for afternoon tea and was very disappointed. Understandably we had to pay for a couple of guests who didnt attend which was fine, however we never recieved their portions of food which was very disappointing. We then had to ask the waitress for some water as there was non on the table. Sandwiches were dry and did not test... More

Great views, although can get a little loud on a Friday night. Very skilled bar staff, good selection of cocktails and a very good selection of high end spirits. Nice start to an evening.

Very central, great views, not too busy wen we went. A good place to grab a drink and avoid the crowds of the high street coffee shops.

I am a student at Lincoln University and sometimes we like to head up the electric bar for a change of scenery, and it is lovely up there. A few of the staff members are lovely but there was one man in particular who was rude to me, I unfortunately forgot my ID, which wasn't a problem as I ordered... More

Had the Cod loin as main and was disappointed as it was not server as described in menu. Missing the mussels and coconut foam. The cheese course was most disappointing too. Celery not fresh and cheese selection quite basis.

Based on good reviews on TripAdvisor and on the Lincoln webpage we visited this restaurant for dinner. However, it does not match the reviews we had seen. First of all the dining area is along a corridor that connects the bar area with some function rooms. On a busy night this could leave one with the feeling of having dinner... More

Visited for a birthday meal. Had 3 courses and glass of wine for £29. Not an extensive choice on the menu, made worse by the fact that half of the choices were unavailable ! Waitresses friendly and helpful. Complimentary glass of Prosecco for the birthday boy, a nice touch. Food good. Drinks pricey. Would try again but would hope that... More

Popped in for cocktails with some friends. Highly recommend the latte one! Good choice and standard prices for such things. Lovely setting with fantastic views. I'll be back to try the food sometime.
