Four of us had lunch, panfried fish was generous, the ribs were well cooked, lovely and tender, the fish cakes were ok. Lovely local wine. Relaxed, very casual dinning experience.

Visited for lunch were 2 other tables occupied my partner got a burger no complaints but my salad on the other hand was dripping in dressing served with some haloumi texture of rubber and some falafels dry enough to cause hiccups. Our area wasn't overly clean and service was pretty blaa. Without talking to my parent they then went there the next day and had a similar experience!

“Poor experience”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Came for a family breakfast. When ordered food were told it would be 30min wait which is fine as they told us. However when the food arrived most of it was cold (bacon & eggs).

I spoke to the manager and to his credit he was very apologetic and gave us a free round of drinks.

A shame as a nice place.

A group of friends and I had dinner at The Lincoln on Friday night, what an awesome bunch of staff who made sure our experience was throughly enjoyable and the food was amazing. I had the famous pork ribs and they were sensational definitely a stand out for me, everyone else in our group was extremely happy with their meals, steaks and venison cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back. Definitely recommended.
