    Favorite Dish: Danish Pastry and cup of Earl Grey tea
    My husband loves the coffee and Baggettes. All freshly made

    The Bowl Full: The Bowl Full - Nice Coffee Shop and Restaurant

    by supercarys Written Apr 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    L to R: latte, Bailey's cheesecake, coffee
    1 more image

    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.

    The Cheese society: Nice bit of Wensleydale, Grommit.

    by sourbugger Written Mar 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Browns Pie Shop: Tasty Local Pies (and History)

    by supercarys Updated Apr 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rabbit pie and veggies

    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.

    The Magna Carta: Good, Cheap Pub Food

    by supercarys Written Apr 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The red brick building in the middle

    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.

    KIND: Might be good...................

    by leics Updated Mar 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KIND

    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:Luxe: Nice bar / food

    So:Luxe

    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.

    The Pyewipe Inn: Cosy Pub/Restaurant in Lincoln

    by supercarys Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pyewipe Inn (from Information Britain)

    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: Best ice cream in England

    by Pomocub Written Jul 23, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    Pizza Express: Very Tasty Traditional Pizza

    by supercarys Written Apr 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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: Ostrich Meat (it's healthy!)

    by supercarys Written Oct 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    OSTRICH BURGERS!!!

    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!

    Brown's Pie Shop: The Most Famous Restaurant In Lincoln

    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.

    Stokes of Lincoln

    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.

    The Jew's House Restaurant: The Best of Lincoln

    by zuriga Written Jan 28, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has the makings of a Michelin star restaurant. No wonder, as the very innovative chef has worked in some Michelin kitchens. We were very happy with our dinner here and would happily return if our path takes us again to Lincoln.

    The exterior of the building reflects it's origins in the 12th century, but the inside dining room is very modern, on the romantic side, and service is excellent as would be expected.

    Favorite Dish: Everything we ate was delicious. A vegetable tagine with tomato jam, frego, and yogurt was exceptionally well-balanced, and my husband loved his roast partridge.

    many places to eat....

    by billy75 Written Apr 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
