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

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
