The old part of Lincoln is rich with history and wonderful architecture whilst the new part of the city offers excellent shopping, cinema and loads of contemporary bars. Whether you are looking for a respite from a day’s retail therapy or somewhere to impress clients over a busy lunch then there are plenty of great restaurants in Lincoln on offer.
The Tower restaurant caters for everyone
At the heart of the old Cathedral quarter you will find The Tower restaurant whose aim is to make fine dining accessible to all. Not just empty words though, they offer vegan menus and cater for all types of food intolerances and allergies. You may need to ask, but the kitchen team are refreshingly open to providing for everyone.
The interiors at The Tower are simple and elegant with floral touches and ornate lamps on side tables that add a homely and welcoming feel. The large conservatory area is bathed in natural light and there is plenty of outdoor seating on the patio areas, complete with umbrellas and space heating.
The menu is Modern British with a blend of contemporary and traditional styling. Starters for example could include a traditional dish of wild mushroom veloute with parmesan biscuits, sautéed wild mushrooms and chervil cream whilst an up to date dish of wild rabbit trifle and lollipop with pea custard, celeriac mash and ginger bread is cutting edge cuisine at its most rebellious. The main course menu is proudly populated with local produce such as fillet of Lincolnshire beef with porcini potato, confit tongue, shallot tarte tatin and baby vegetables or old spot pork loin and belly with sage mash, onion custard, celery shoots and apple black pudding crumble.
Desserts retain that all important sense of fun with offerings such as grilled banana sandwich with peanut butter ice cream, sesame brittle and salted caramel or calvados and raisin pannacotta with apple dip, cinnamon doughnut and buttermilk ice cream. The selection of Lincolnshire cheese is served with an impressive array of accompaniments; celery cress, grape chutney, green apple, pickled walnuts, oat cake, plum bread and black pepper water biscuits.
