Definitely not a cheap place to eat, but very nice and well presented food. I would class it more on the fine dining side, however I feel the portions are very good for a restaurant of this type. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

Had a very pleasant evening here with colleagues from work. The food was very good and a last improvement on our last visit. Good beer and wine, and excellent service.

This is the place to go if you find yourself in need of a meal uphill in Lincoln when many restaurants are closed between the end of lunch and the beginning of dinner. The chef knows how to cook a steak exactly how you've asked for it (medium rare for me please), and the traditional accompaniment of chips, tomato and... More

A group of 14 of us ate here for a works leaving meal. They were very accomodating and set the table up nicely for us and made sure there were enough seats. The staff were friendly and helpful - however some of the preordered food got mixed up and that made it a bit confusing, but we managed to sort... More

either with window seats looking out onto elegant Bailgate or (especially at night) stunning views of the awesome Cathedral west front. Additionally there is Scott Flynn, a personable manager who knows his trade and is ready with a smile and advice. The smoked haddock risotto starter hit all the buttons and the pork belly main course was just superb, Good... More
