32 Steep Hill, LINCOLN, LN2 1LU
Just yards from the magnificent edifice of Lincoln Cathedral, this two-storey pub has a pedigree nearly as long; parts of it date back over 700 years. It's the ideal place for a quick pick-me-up snack, drink or leisurely meal from breakfast to evening. Notably music-free; instead you'll find a reading room, eclectic decor and furnishings - note the caricatures and prints of clergy and lawyers - and own-brewed beers and those from local breweries slake the thirst. The daily-changing set menu adds modern twists to traditional dishes. Thus roast rump of lamb comes with pine nut and herb couscous and minted yogurt; or slow-cooked pork collar with Lincolnshire sausage bread pudding, creamed white beans and sage may be listed. Daily blackboard specials considerably extend the choice and include vegetarian and gluten-free options. Gourmet evenings (pre-booking essential) are regularly held, while wine-lovers have a choice of 24 by the glass.
