Featured Lincoln Restaurants
1. Jew’s House Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Lincoln 15 The Strait - LN2
A “wonderful setting in a medieval building” (a twelfth century house that’s one of the oldest in town, on ‘Steep Hill’ leading up to the Cathedral) contributes to the charms of this long-established fixture, which is “still going strong”. It’s modern British menu delivers “lovely delicate food, with fresh flavours from quality meat and fish”.
2. Ole Ole restaurant in Lincoln 33 Bailgate - LN1
2018 Review: In a city underserved by good restaurants, this “marvellous place” is a bit of a beacon; it’s “only small but the menu is large”, and “when the sun’s out, there’s nothing nicer than sitting at a table in the garden” while you enjoy some “authentic” tapas.
3. The Old Bakery International restaurant in Lincoln 26-28 Burton Road - LN1
2019 Review: “The food is always cooked to perfection” at this cute city-centre restaurant-with-rooms. Chef-owner Ivano de Serio’s “menu changes frequently and it’s always interesting, with a nice little twist or different interpretation of the dish”.
4. Bronze Pig British, Modern restaurant in Lincoln 4 Burton Road - LN1
2019 Review: A vividly decorated, upscale restaurant-with-rooms, near the castle, whose winning formula includes The Head Chef Phil Cook at the pass, and Sicilian owner Pompeo Siracusa as FOH. Five years in, quibbles over service and prices have stilled, with praise of late for the “good cooking” of “fresh local ingredients”.
5. Browns Pie Shop British, Modern restaurant in Lincoln 33 Steep Hill - LN2
2017 Review: “Extremely comforting on a winter’s day”, this old vaulted cellar is “just perfect” to its fans. The odd critic is dismissive (“surprisingly bland pies served in a poky back room”), but on most accounts this is “a taste of old England”.
