More things to do in Lincoln

Intimate dinner

Top grub and beautiful surroundings collide Harbour Lights. This local favourite overlooks the marina and is known for serving up delicious food. The starters are brilliant with the Scotch Eggs and baked Camembert worth a mention.

The menu changes with the seasons so expect something different with repeat visits (as you will want to go back) but you will always find juicy steaks cooked just how you like them

Light lunch

Go big on bunting and baking nostalgia with a shabby-chic afternoon tea. The cakes, butties and brews on offer at Bunty’s Tea Room are well worth the yomp up Steep Hill. Colourful bunting, vintage china and big-band music all help to set the scene. Pass the clotted cream


Crispy prawn toast, piles of steaming noodles and sticky, spicy meat. Chinese food is always tasty. Even more so at The Phoenix, which locals have loved for decades. Why? Try the beef satay – which is delivered sizzling to your table. All kinds of yum

Street food

You have to go a fair way to find a farmers’ market scene that outshines Lincoln’s. The High Street collective meet at the foot of Steep Hill (phew!) on the second Wednesday of each month; the City Square event meets on the first Friday, and Castle Hill the third Saturday – so you’re rarely without a fix.
