What a great restaurant or cafe. We went in for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. A very good wide choice and huge portions. The two course menu was very impressive. Their Christmas menu looks great and is very reasonably priced.

Don't usually like to eat pies out - mainly because they don't seem special. These, however are different. I had a Great British Cheese pie and Wendy had a fish pie. Both were really tasty.

We had a meal there recently meeting four other friends. It was a great atmosphere and great tasty food. Although our table was needed later that evening, it was very relaxed and unhurried. We had three courses and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

After an epic walk up Steep Hill I was ready for dinner with a colleague. Took the steak & kidney puff pastry pie with mash and vegetables followed by creme brulee. Service was happy and quick. Will return next time I'm in Lincoln.

The ghost pirate likes pies. Mrs Ghost pirate likes pies. In fact she's known to love pies. She doesn't look like a pie eater though. She's slim...and fit....and sexy and that's why I love her. She's a good looking pie eater. I can't remember why...More

Don't expect fantastic décor - it's basic. Do expect great food and good service. I had a game pie, my wife fish and chips - both excellent.

I would say it would be fine. It's definitely not posh and feels like a cosy medieval pub atmosphere. We went on our own without the kids though so didn't look at a kids menu/notice highchairs etc so maybe better if you... More
