We had Seabass and Venison, both sublime and with wonderful subtle flavourings; starters and desserts were similarly beautifully presented and highly enticing. We came for my wife's birthday while visiting Lincoln,...More

Thank you for the review, we are sorry you felt you had a little wait. We don't turn our tables over so that we don't have to rush you and sometimes maybe the break is too long for some guests. We hope you book again...More
