Vent here for Valentine’s Day. The food was very good, atmosphere was nice and the staff professional and formal. No delays in delivering the food or any other issue. Nice pallet cleansers between the meals.

Excellent weekday set lunch. Good choice of food, well cooked and nicely presented. Restaurant had pleasant ambience. Don't be put off by the outside appearance eg chalk boards.

Dog friendly bar in uphill Lincoln. Went out for a celebratory dinner and we're not disappointed. Perfectly cooked steak and a rich soufflé paired perfectly with lovely wine. Chips were excellent! Definitely coming back for their steak night and want to try the restaurant menu...More
