Modern British cooking in the historic quarter

AA Inspector

At a glance

Open all year
Private dining
Wines by the glass

The old hotel is a feature of the historic quarter of Lincoln, with splendid views of one of England's greatest cathedrals, and the castle not far off. Inside, a suave contemporary look brings wood flooring and large mirrors to the Grille restaurant and bar, where dark wood tables look the part. A twice-baked soufflé of Lincolnshire Poacher seems only appropriate in the circumstances, or there may be beetroot-cured salmon to start, ahead of a pairing of slow-cooked belly and tenderloin of local pork with carrot purée and a flavoursome jus. To finish, look out for the fine pastry work in a peach frangipane tart with macadamia and vanilla ice cream.
