Afternoon tea was less than mediocre for five persons. On arrival place was empty,I should have seen this as an omen. Apart from piped Christmas music there was no evidence of the Christmas period in this room. The nice bits are - Nice Clean and Tidy reasonable environment with some views over the Brayford and towards the Cathedral but also... More

We visited this restaurant on the 6th November to celebrate my girlfriends 23rd Birthday. With relatively good reviews and my girlfriend having visited prior to the restaurant changing ownership to Marco Pierre White, it seemed like the best option for the area. I booked a table for 9pm and I was asked whether it was for a special occasion and... More

Cocktail heaven. Not much here you can't get, but take out a second mortgage! Don't even want to know how much we spentt. Still, capped off a great night and overlooking the waterfront drinking pink fizz from jars can't be beaten. Do it, you know it makes sense!

We have used this bar a few times before and I would have to describe it as average, I think it's trying to be upmarket, but not sure if that works. Service is ok if no one else in, drinks are over priced for what they are, and it really feels like a case of "please come in and spend... More

On my most recent visit here, we opted for one of the weekly meal deals which was fantastic value and certainly no compromise on quality. The 3 courses for £29 and half a bottle of wine each was fantastic value. The food portions were not massively affected to normal, and the taste and presentation was superb. I would always recommend... More

This is a lovely bar to enjoy a well made reasonably priced cocktail whilst enjoying the views over the Brayford and sitting enjoying the sun. There is a wide range of cocktails along with a wide variety of other drinks. The service was good and efficient and very friendly and there is comfortable seating inside and out. The food available... More

Having read a lot about this place, popped in whilst in Lincoln at the weekend. Had a lovely glass of white wine on the balcony with my wife overlooking the waterside. Very pleasant indeed and will come back for a visit to the restaurant next time we come to Lincoln

Visited the bar with my brother. It's quite small inside but has a great outlook over the Brayford. My favourite cocktail, a Manhatten, was one of the best I've had - especially nice to be offered a choice of sweet, perfect or dry Mahatten. Was also given a choice of garnish, went for the traditional maraschino cherry. Top cocktail place.
