We stayed here for two nights. The hotel was above the normal Hilton standards; the restaurant was in a different league. The service was at least silver but the food was absolutely fabulous. Great imagination combined with the "well known" reliable. Service was 4.9 out of 5 but the food was a solid 5. Prices, particularly when combined with hotel... More

Brilliant cocktails, we took my 82yrs old mother who thoroughly enjoyed them, it was interesting to watch them being made too. Not too expensive if you like a treat every now and then. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We visited here yesterday for lunch, the sun was shining, we sat on the balcony over looking Lincoln, the views are fantastic. The young lady that served us was lovely, great customer service. With champagne at only £5 a glass it was a real treat and the food was good too. We will definitely return.

Electric bar The two staff that were serving on Sunday evening were excellent. Very knowledgeable about cocktails and made a suggestion which I took and it was a very good drink. Will definitely be back.

Good cocktails at right price! Tons of promos meaning you don't have to spend the earth for a nice drink... Plus nice view of the Brayford too.

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
