    Looked great but failed to deliver. Very little taste and thoroughly disappointing.

    The staff were very kind and helpful. The food was excellent. I asked if you served Guinness sadly you didn't, your staff said that they had a Blackshaw Stout I asked if I could have a taste and they came back with a small taster for me it was very nice so I ordered a pint. Lovely evening thanks to all.

    Fantastic food service and welcome.

    Much enjoyed the experience. Very quiet evening (3 Jan) in the pub - which was OK for us, but others might have felt a bit isolated in our window seat with no other occupied tables nearby. Only criticism of the food was that the onions (both in the 'rings' and with the liver) were rather tough. Will visit again if in Lincoln in the future.

    We had a fab night from start to finish! Couldnt fault the horse and groom with anything! Food was brilliant staff couldnt be any nicer really chatty and friendly! Definately will be going again xx highly recommend x

    The Horse and Groom is a really nice place, the food was nice and the service was good. I would of liked to see more on the menu and more choices but that's just me.

    We had a really nice meal at the Horse & Groom in Lincoln. The food was good value and the service spot on. We will definitely return again if we are ever back in the area.

    We had a great meal. But on another table a child found out what his lungs were for. So for us with well behaved children this was disturbing and stressful. We had hoped to have the Sunday dinner but they had stopped serving at 5pm.

    Great place and friendly service at The Horse and Groom.

We say…

The Horse and Groom is a delightful, family pub and kitchen in Lincoln city centre. Arguably serving the best pub food in Lincoln, it can be found on the corner of Carholme Road, adjacent to the city’s popular Brayford Wharf.  

The venue possesses a unique character and charm that you don’t always find in your standard local drinking hole. Sporting a cosy interior, it welcomes you into its comfortable yet stylish dining room and friendly bar area. Manager Craig and the team pride themselves on steering away from mass-produced lagers, choosing instead to celebrate their real cask ales and superb wine list. The pub is never shy of events and offers, so if you don’t want to break the bank while you’re dining, it might be just what you’ve been searching for.

The Horse and Groom is perfect for those looking for quality British dishes crafted with care and attention using locally-sourced produce. Open from noon until late, guests can treat themselves to a lunch, light meal, or plentiful dinner. The a la carte menu presents a generous list of homemade pub classics including delicious steaks and grills, traditional fish and chips, and vegetarian meals such as the Vegetarian curried butternut squash risotto served with baby spinach, coconut milk and toasted cashew nuts. Try their ever-popular homemade pies for something extra special.

As well as the regular menus, diners can also take advantage of the daily blackboard specials and weekly deals such as Pie and Pint Wednesday and Beer and Mussel Thursdays. 

The Horse and Groom is the ideal venue for intimate meals, but also is fantastic for parties and celebrations. Catering for large and small parties, the restaurant also offers facilities for functions, large sit down meals and buffets.

Always an excellent choice for first-rate British cuisine in Lincolnshire, and just a stones’ throw away from the beautiful Brayford Waterfront the Horse and Groom should always be high up on the 'go to' list!
