We had a meal there recently meeting four other friends. It was a great atmosphere and great tasty food. Although our table was needed later that evening, it was very relaxed and unhurried. We had three courses and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

After an epic walk up Steep Hill I was ready for dinner with a colleague. Took the steak & kidney puff pastry pie with mash and vegetables followed by creme brulee. Service was happy and quick. Will return next time I'm in Lincoln.

Don't expect fantastic décor - it's basic. Do expect great food and good service. I had a game pie, my wife fish and chips - both excellent.

Excellent food, proper chips and decent service. The only slight negative was that I expected beers on draught at a pie restaurant. I will be going again in the future.

I would say it would be fine. It's definitely not posh and feels like a cosy medieval pub atmosphere. We went on our own without the kids though so didn't look at a kids menu/notice highchairs etc so maybe better if you... More
