Lincoln
Reviewed 26 January 2015

Currently closed, no known date for opening. The pub is not on the market as far as locals know. Has been closed since approx. Sept 2014. Contact the Pyewipe Inn Lincoln. When open this was a village pub with accommodation, parking, outside seating, accent on the food. No pool table/fruit machines/noisy music.

Room was adequate, the two drinking...

My second unexpected visit of year and certainly not my choice. Choice of food was not large except if you enjoy pies. On the plus side when food arrived it was certainly of a good standard, hot and enjoyable. Down side being extremely sticky tables, service or rather taking our order wasn't exactly swift considering very few diners on our...

On entering the Penny Farthing as signposted, you walk through the staff smoking area to be met by the kitchen with door propped open on one side and the chiller room with door propped open on the other. We stayed two nights and were served by inexperienced youngsters all the time, it showed in the standard of service. The bedroom...

We ate in the dining room for dinner. We did not stay at the accommodations, so this review is pertaining to the food and service. A reasonable selection of food on the menu, and a simple wine list. It was not busy (weeknight), so service was reasonably fast. Pleasant young staff. Main meals accompanied by steamed vegetables and new potatoes....
