Tables outside are in a sun spot in the summer. Where you can eat a superb bagette or the nicest Danish pastry that Iv'e ever had. sometimes they have still been warm from the oven. You can also get other light meals inside if you wish.
Favorite Dish: Danish Pastry and cup of Earl Grey tea
My husband loves the coffee and Baggettes. All freshly made
It might be the slightly dungeon-like feel to the lower room, it might be the extremely comfortable couches, or the aroma of fresh coffee and sweet cakes and passtries flowing through the air, but as soon as I sat down in The Bowl Full, I knew I liked the place. It really is a great place to just relax and have a coffe or a meal and a chat with friends.
Favorite Dish: I had a delicious latte with a caramel shot, super sweet. I also tried the Bailey's cheesecake which was delicious too...
Price indicated below is for coffee alone.
I've only just discovered this excellent little cafe, just off the main tourist run in Lincoln. Nestled at the foot the hill, it has throughly contemporary feel to it, without overdoing it.
The teas and coffees were all very fine, with none of the flowery chintz that you tend to get elsewhere in the town. Looking over the snack and lunctime menu (open 10am-4.30 Mon-Sat) it was easy to see the theme of 'cheese' running throughout.
The USP of this establishment is, without doubt, a generous helping of the fromage in every available form. You can even order cheese - straight. The first rate cheese counter stands at the entrance to the shop, with some good local cheeses on show. Most of these are organic and totally mouth-watering. As i write this tip, my keyboard is becoming drenched in dribble.
They also do mail order.
Really nice, local ingredients in the pies. VERY interesting fillings like local rabbit and braised elderberry, duck and raspberry. Delicious, all. You get a plate of vegetables to go with your pie.
Favorite Dish: I've only been there once. I had the rabbit pie, which was absolutely delicious.
For more information, the website has the full menu and prices.
This pub has some of the nicest cheap pub food I have ever tasted. You can get special meal deals (buy one get one free and the like) on certain meals and the quality is high.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly but it's usually quite smoky, unfortunately.
Favorite Dish: The beef and ale pie is DELICIOUS!
You go up to the counter to order your meal and they'll bring it to you.
Right next to the Cathedral and Castle, it's a great place to end your day after sightseeing.
Sortof a bar/coffeehouse. Quite new, I think. Squashy leather sofas, newspapers (The Daily Mail????). 50 pence extra gets you unlimited refills of coffee. Huge toasted sandwiches, hone-made coleslaw..............in fact, everything is supposed to be home-made. The chips certainly were though, sadly, over-cooked and somewhat tepid. Perhaps they'll be better when they've been going for a while? They do a range of meals/sandwiches/jacket potatoes etc.
So is a nice restaurant overlooking Brayford Pool. the interior is rather dimly lit but has rather comfortable armcharis to sit in as you eat your food and an interesting water feature in the middle of the room.
Favorite Dish: I had a lovely warm chicken baguette and a pint of Coke (Note to self, never buy a pint of coke unless you want to have a sleepless night). There's not a huge variety of food but it all looks quite nice and my baguettte came with salad.
This old style pub is a lovely cosy place where you can go for a few drinks with friends or have a nice meal. There are a few open fires around that you can sit near in the winter with a nice cup of coffee or a hot toddy if you prefer!
Split by the bar in the middle, the seating is fairly private for such a large place and the chairs are comfortable enough to sit in for hours. It has smoking and non-smoking areas.
I really like this place.
There is also the possibility of holding a large function in the Cathedral Suite, up to 100 people. It also has rooms available from about 70 pounds per night.
Blyton Ice cream is an Ice cream parlour located in.... you guessed it Blyton which is a village in Lincoln between the towns of Gainsborough and Scunthorpe. Blyton Ice cream also serves a number of other deserts and also has a hot food menu for those of you who don't want an ice cream.
Ice creams can be ordered from the parlour outdoors where you can pick from a selection of about 50 different flavours. There is a large seating area both indoors and outdoors and a free car park at the rear of the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: My favourite ice cream is one scoop of double chocolate chip and a scoop of mint chocolate chip in a wafer cone - Choco-heaven!
The pizzas here are real, quality, made on the premesis stone oven baked and very tasty indeed. The place is usually quite full because it's so popular, but you can go in and they'll tell you what time to go back if it's full.
Favorite Dish: I like the traditional lemonade. Any of the pizzas are worth it, you can even see them being made.
Oslinc is an ostrich meat farm that also offers ostrich burgers to the public from time to time at farmers markets and other such street stall events. For £2.20 you can get a delicious ostrich burger or for 20pence extra, one with cheese. Ostrich meat tastes very much like beef but has less fat than chicken or turkey (roughly 1.2% fat rather than up to 9.7% for pork) and cooks in much less time.
You can buy fresh ostrich meat at the markets as well; mince, roasts, burgers, sausages, even fresh ostrich eggs (weighing from 1-2 kilograms)!
Favorite Dish: I have only tried the ostrich burger, which is delicious!
This place even gets reviews in national newspapers. It's small, quaint and also sells food other than pies! We went here for lunch a couple of times and the food was generally a very good standard.
They have a 'beat the clock' menu in the evening.
Favorite Dish: The desserts are great.
This cafe/restaurant is great for a light lunch or afternoon tea. It is situated on the bridge over the river Witham in the heart of the shopping district. Enter through the baker's shop on the ground floor and as you go up the creaky stairs you can read all about the history of the building.
One of the most important things when on holiday is delicious food, atmospheric dining and a good glass of wine or a pint of beer. Whether it is morning or afternoon tea at a unique tearoom, lunch at a local pub or fine dining, you can find it all in Lincolnshire.
A real treat is tasting local produce, so look out for the ?Tastes of Lincolnshire? sign and you will not be disappointed, at least three items on the menu will have been cooked with local produce.
The first place I ate in lincoln, and I've been back numerous times, I took my wife there on our 1st date.. the food has been consistently good for 10+ years.. I asked the scotish guy who owns it how he keeps standards high once, he says that he's always had the same chef....
the vegitarian menu is sorta limited, but what they do they do very well, the 4 cheese pies v.rich, but calorific geogeous..
oh yeh, for all you johnny foreigners (from peterborough), its a stones throw from the cathedral, so its an easy addition to your itinery.
