After a long day we found we were very close to the Wig & Mitre, which a colleague had recommended. Not haute cuisine, but a very acceptable meal and good service. I would recommend the St Clements possett.

A busy Saturday night, so lucky we got seated. Fabulous specials board but I opted for a steak which was perfectly cooked and we all agreed our mains and puddings were truly scrumptious. All our food was superbly cooked. The service was a bit slow but the lady who served us was lovely. The place feels a little dated but... More

Inside this has a more open and modern (for Lincoln) feel than some of the Lincoln pubs. BUT don't be put off with that - it has a great atmosphere and they really look after their beers. Not as noisy as some of the smaller pubs either and with great staff worth a visit for a sifter or two. Just... More

My wife and I had lunch here with a friend. We chose it because we had eaten there from time to time since it first opened. We were disappointed. Whilst the food was good the service was very poor. We were shown to a table and then left. Although it wasn't busy and there seemed to be 3 employees hanging... More

We booked lunch here on a recent visit to see our daughter who is at university in Lincoln. Apparently she'd eaten here before and thought it was good so I suppose I was probably expecting great things. It was very busy when we arrived which I always take as a good sign. The interior though is very dark and worn.... More

The staff were helpful, the place buzzing, the ale good and food very good. We eat upstairs in the restaurant were there was plenty of space.The food was reasonably... More

Was lovely as soon as we walked in! We were offered a taste of some new local wines! Which may I add were lovely!! We hadn't intended on buying more than one bottle to celebrate but did anyway!! He was very accommodating even though we walked in just before he was due to close!

Tonight is the third time in the last 2 years I have been in here and it's the third time I've been disappointed. It's supposed to have a good reputation amongst people living in Lincoln, however, none of these locals who recommended it to me have been in there because "it's a bit too expensive". Walking in the place is... More

Taillis, Owner at Wig & Mitre, responded to this review

I very sorry you have been so disappointed on three separate occasions, we are proud of what we do, if your salmon was overcooked it should have been replaced. The Wig is always having a facelift somewhere, this year the flooring upstairs was renewed and we are currently renewing all the oak tabletops. The next plan is to refurbish downstairs.... More
