Met a good friend yesterday and settled on Pimento for a tea, coffee and a chat. Plenty of room for us to hog a table for a long while, and no body seemed to want to move us on,( we don't do this when a place is busy,). Nice drinks served well and delicious cake. Can recommend. This is not... More

It's such a lovely feeling being a vegetarian going into a place to eat, looking at the menu and the specials board knowing that for once you can have every dish on there. Lots of hot and cold sandwiches, salads, stews, curries, jacket potatoes as well as lovely looking desserts and cakes. Excellent coffee and delightful loose leaf teas. Very... More

We've often popped in here, although we do try to vary where we go out to eat, it's difficult to find a reason not to go to Pimento's. We've had breakfast and lunch and afternoon cakes here, and can only say, whether you're vegetarian, vegan or otherwise, give it a try. Always a great selection of interesting and filling meals...

We stopped in after having toured the cathedral and castle for a late lunch. Wide choice of lunches with plenty of gf options. The soup was very tasty and plenty of it. The triple chocolate gf cheesecake was a hit.

We stopped in Pimento's for something to eat while shopping in Lincoln. Interesting building. We were served by a friendly waitress who explained what each special consisted of. It was nice to have such a choice of dishes to choose from and it was hard to decide! I ordered the sweet potato curry and my friend had a salad. The... More

This is a lovely tea room with top-quality service and delicious food. There is plenty of space spread over four floors, so even at lunchtime we could find a table. I ate goat's cheese salad with apricots and prunes on one day - genius combination; sweet potato curry - fantastic; and chick pea and apricot stew on another - delicious.... More

Dropped in for a break whilst attending the Lincoln Sausage Festival. Didn't realise Pimento is a vegetarian cafe until inside, they should advertise that more, but what a lovely cafe it is. The menu is all very tempting and although I am not vegetarian it all sounded every tasty! Sadly we were only in for a drink and a snack... More
