Great selection of beers, comfy seats, and a true local pub. Take cash as they don't accept credit. Atmosphere was very cozy and we enjoyed our drinks.

What a cracking old school pub, right up my street! Beer mats hung everywhere, assortment of furniture, tremendous selection of cask ale and a right good laugh! If you want plastic pubs.....move on!

Lovely pub, great ale and great decor. A proper pub doing what it does best. In the CAMRA Good Beer guide and you can certainly see why. A real gem!

Had a couple of lovely evenings here. They had eleven cask ales! The staff were very friendly. We enjoyed live music which was not too loud, just an acoustic guitar and vocalist. We will definitely go back next time we are in Lincoln.

Wow, what a rude landlady. A witch in fact, and a word which rhymes with this! Far better pubs and bars in Lincoln with welcoming staff.
