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


Meat, meat and more meat. Samba Brazil brings the famous churrascaria (BBQ) style of cuisine to Lincoln. Sit back and enjoy your food as different cuts of meat, cooked on an open flame, are brought around to your table. The smokey flavours and all you can eat salad bar are enough to fill anyone's tummy.

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.
