Pre booked the tasting menu and it was fabulous. Every single course had excellence in flavour written all over it. It hit every taste bud and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Wine menu was a good choice and not overly expensive for the location of the...More

We had spotted this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to try during an overnight visit to Lincoln, more than lived up to expectations, a warm welcome, food cooked to perfection, a perfect meal.

We were running late due to Lincoln being really busy but not a problem. Excellent lunch. Good value for money. We all had different starters, all very tasty. Main was beef cooked to perfection. Would go out of my way to try dinner.
