We called here for a belated birthday lunch & wasn't disappointed. We have walked past so many times but today we decided to try. I had the smoked salmon and my husband had the wild mushroom & garlic soup for starter. For mains we ordered beer battered fish & chips and the 6oz rump steak, both were cooked to perfection....

A last minute decision to eat out one evening and most of the restaurants in uphill Lincoln were closed so although The Grille was not our first choice, at least it was open! The restaurant was nearly empty so the service was quick and efficient, and the food was fine and reasonably priced. It was a bit soulless, but I... More

The ambiance was just perfect and the food was just impeccable too. The only thing that let it down for me was the attention to detail and the pace of staff was just so slow. Leaving all of the glasses on the table throughout the evening as well as side plates and baskets from the bread. When you are paying... More

My wife and I were Invited by Step son, to meet at the White Hart for lunch. We met earlier in their bar and was a little surprised at the price of one drink. A Double bacardi and Coke £8.10. WOW. However pleasantly surprised by cost of 3 main meals and 2 glasses of wine. Good value for class hotel

We had a lovely lunch recently at the Grille. We both had the steak and ale pie accompanied by vegetables and chips. Great value for money, excellent service and friendly staff.

Visited today (2-3-17) for lunch. I had the Ham and Lincolnshire Poacher Croquettes, followed by the 6oz Rump Steak Sandwich with Hand Cut Chips, which I thoroughly enjoyed. My Father had the Chicken Liver Pafait, followed by the Steak and Ale Pie. He found his main a little too hot but otherwise he also enjoyed his meal.

We booked for four of us for Sunday lunch to celebrate 2 birthdays and an engagement. My Husband particularly enjoys a good Sunday roast, so we chose a lunchtime. I had booked a table, and as we had eaten here before, we looked forward to a good lunch. We certainly did have a good lunch, we all enjoyed our meals,... More

I come to the grille fairly regularly with workmates, sometimes one or two, sometimes a larger group. This time we came as a group of seven, straight from work, to celebrate a birthday. Lovely round table, so much better than sitting in a row! Staff extremely patient and courteous with us. Food as always was a delight, the early evening... More

Definitely not a cheap place to eat, but very nice and well presented food. I would class it more on the fine dining side, however I feel the portions are very good for a restaurant of this type. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion.
