Welcomed and seated straight away! 5/5. Although a small menu, it's good for the indecisive and hit all the major meats and vegetarian options. 5/5. Constantly attend too via the friendly christmas jumper dressed staff! 5/5. We ordered a fish and chips, chicken tikka and sausages. All were amazing, really good standard for a little restaurant and my parents had... More

We had dinner at the Tower at the weekend. First of all a special mention for the staff, who excelled in every way. The service was attentive, efficient, friendly and polite. What more could be asked for in that regard? I had the ham hock pressing starter - superb, beautifully presented and very tasty. I could easily have eaten it... More

Having lived in the Lincoln area for the last 30+ years I did wonder why I had not been to The Tower Hotel restaurant before. Better late than never and the opportunity rose to take a relative for Sunday lunch. The restaurant itself is relatively small but perfectly formed. At one end are windows overlooking Westgate and at the other... More

Visited here with my family on Sunday for Sunday lunch and the food was delicious! The menu had slightly differed from online so none of the current puddings enticed us... (we are a family of puddings!) The waiter made a suggestion of something the chef could whip up and it was amazing!! Really grateful for them going above and beyond.... More

Having received a voucher as a gift, we booked ahead and were seated in the restaurant. Service was friendly and attentive. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were fresh and beautifully prepared. Lovely tea served in nice china cups. Enjoyable and would recommend. We were certainly full afterwards!

We came for the steak which was cooked just right for all three of us and the onion rings and chips perfect. The surroundings are very smart and tasteful. In fact I haven't had such a... More
