Featured Lincolnshire Restaurants
. Harry’s Place
French restaurant in Great Gonerby
17 High Street - NG31
Harry & Caroline Hallam’s quaint 10-seater feels like you’re dining in their front room – you are! – with Harry at the stoves presenting you with a small, hand-written menu with a couple of choices for each course, and Caroline front of House. Their venture was founded long before the term pop-up had acquired its current meaning: they are about to enter their 30th year in business! Reports are not as numerous as once they were, but their small, loyal fan club are as ecstatic as ever regarding the exceptional cuisine and genuine welcome.
. The Old Bakery
International restaurant in Lincoln
26-28 Burton Road - LN1
A “very romantic” restaurant-with-rooms that’s “well worth making a detour to sample”; while some “miss the eclectic welcome” formerly provided by chef Ivano de Serio’s padre, the food “gets better and better” (“always different, always adventurous”).
British, Modern restaurant in Stamford
5 Cheyne Lane - PE9
“Ex-Hambleton Hall chef Stephen Conway’s deli-café” – soups and sandwiches by day, and fine dining on Thursday and Friday nights – wins praise for its “really good food and value”. (It’s named after celebrated fat man, Daniel Lambert, who ’exhibited himself for profit’ in the 1800s.)
. Jew’s House Restaurant
British, Modern restaurant in Lincoln
15 The Strait - LN2
Location, location, and location is a key strength of this “romantic” veteran venue in a low-beamed, 12th century building – one of England’s earliest surviving townhouses. The cooking doesn’t let the side down though, with much praise and no complaints this year.
. The New Inn
restaurant in Great Limber
2 High St - DN37
“The best steaks and the most delicious fish ’n’ chips” grace the “unusual menu” (with produce from the local Brocklesby Estate) of this “calm and delightful” three-year-old – a former village pub taken over by Ian Matfin (ex-of Gordon Ramsay etc.) and his wife.
. Hope And Anchor
restaurant in South Ferriby
Sluice Road - DN18
Right on the coast, five minutes from the Humber Bridge, and with wonderful views of the estuary, this “busy” large pub-with-rooms wins praise for its “welcoming” style, with “great steaks” (from the Lakes, and showcased in a MaturMeat cabinet) a culinary highlight (although vegan and veggie menus are also a feature).
. Brownlow Arms
British, Traditional restaurant in Hough On The Hill
2017 Review: A popular, scenically located village gastroboozer combining “restaurant-quality food” and solid service.
. The Wig & Mitre
British, Modern restaurant in Lincoln
30-32 Steep Hill - LN2
2014 Review: A big, well-known pub/restaurant, near the Cathedral, where “food is served all-day, every day”; even if it’s not quite back to its glory days, it’s tipped as “well worth a visit” (under recently installed management who are “doing great things”).
. The George Hotel
British, Traditional restaurant in Stamford
71 St Martins - PE9
“The panelled dining room is a wonderful place, almost untouched by time: all fine linen, gleaming cutlery and shining glass”, at this huge, storybook coaching inn, at the centre of a marvellous Georgian town. “For traditional cuisine, including a dramatic beef trolley” with “classically fine” wines it does have many fans, although the experience can not-so-infrequently end up seeming “ludicrously expensive for indifferent food”. NB Courtyard dining and a Garden Room bistro also feature on-site.
