The thriving university city of Lincoln has much to offer in the way of restaurants and bars. Whether you are looking for a quiet evening meal in the old part of the city, with its winding streets and heritage buildings, or a lively post-shopping lunch in a modern and vibrant environment there is sure to be something to suit your dining needs.
In the Carlton Centre, on Alexander Walk, you will find Alexander’s; an award winning Modern British restaurant with a cafe and a bar. A popular venue that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, Alexander’s has a reputation for excellent food and colourful contemporary surroundings; perfect for that mid-shopping break.
Casual and relaxed dining with an urban edge
Housed in a large, glass-sided construction it is a perfect example of modern relaxation and is softened by fabric tenting on the ceiling and blond wood furniture. Bright splashes of bold colour add energy and interest whilst large squashy sofas provide ample space to lounge. The feel is casual and relaxed, a bit like dining in Habitat, with an urban edge.
Breakfast is served from 10am to 11.45am in the form of full English or eggs Benedict as well as a selection of pastries or bread items. The lunch menu is light and simple with starters along the lines of potted stilton and oatcakes. Main course dishes include chicken breast in chorizo cream, twice cooked blade of beef, or garlic poached chicken thighs with smoked sausage and pepper stew.
The dinner menu continues in the same simple vein, upping its game ever so slightly, with starters of ham and poached egg with a charred lemon dressing or smoked trout fillet with horseradish sauce. On to main course and you could order confit lemon and ginger chicken with sautéed polenta and pesto or tender shredded lamb with balsamic gravy and crushed potato champ.

With 3 courses from the a la carte menu averaging at around £25.00 per head, this is great British food at a very reasonable price.
