Popped in for evening meal on Monday 20th Feb. The place was empty except one other diner. Frankly this was a bit scary - empty restaurants are always a worry. However, I shouldn't have feared, the food and service were excellent! We were given the main restaurant menu and the bar menu. Having looked at both, the bar menu was... More

Thank you to all the staff at the Tower Hotel & Restaurant for making my 30th Birthday so special. Your assistance in the run-up to the event was very much appreciated and your calm and patience in supplying 50 pre-orders was quite frankly astounding! On the night, your staff were so helpful in terms of decorating the room and tables... More

I came here in January with my family and was blown away by the quality and value of the food here. Because I was so impressed, we booked a table here for Valentine's Day, which was a three course meal with coffee for around £40 a head. The whole meal was pleasant but quite average and definitely of a poorer... More

Well a really excellent lunch for four, good diverse yet small menu coupled with very good service on a Saturday lunch which was busy. Always a pleasure here and always feel welcome £80 for the Four.

It was mid week late January and we were the only guests in the hotel. The décor, service and food were all excellent.. After office hours and... More

This was our third family Christmas party at The Tower.. Adam and his team provided excellent food, excellent service and a wonderful ambience. All dietary requirements were dealt with in a very professional way. Fabulous and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. We will be back next Christmas and maybe before. Big thank you to Adam and the Team

We booked our evening meal in the morning just to make sure that we had a table. This is a popular pub, and busy especially during the run up to Xmas. We took advantage of the Wednesday steak offer and were blown away by the quality of both the steak and the wine. The staff were very pleasant and professional.... More

I, my wife and 2 friends visited the tower on Saturday 10th December. I have to say, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I ate from the Christmas menu, and chose a starter of pheasant and pigeon, a main course of braised blade of Lincolnshire beef, followed by Christmas pudding. The portions are excellent, and left comfortably... More

Visited the Lincoln Xmas Market and decided to take time out for a proper lunch. This was however fine dining at a very reasonable price. The food had intense but subtly constructed flavours which revealed a high degree of skills in the kitchen. Staff were charming and friendly without being fussy. An oasis of calm on a busy day. Well... More
