In the Kat's 📚 Sunday Roast at the Tower is always a good option and on this occasion it excelled itself. Started with Chorizo Scotch egg and The Kat loves the perfect succulent pink beef and is partial to a good cauliflower 🧀 Innovative menu especially starters and deserts and properly cooked Roast meats what more could a Kat ask...

Really can't fault the food. Compliments to the chef - the menu is unusual (Guinness icecream!) but so amazing. I had the mushroom tart starter OMG probably the nicest starter I've had. My partner had the steak for mains - it was melt in your mouth - didn't even need a steak knife quality. Would recommend for couples and groups... More

We had family down and decided to try the 2 courses for £12 to try and keep the cost down. We were not disappointed! Great selection on the menu. The staff were very helpful, and friendly. Beautiful decor and spotless clean! The food was presented very well and was delicious. Will definitely recommend

This place opposite the Castle in Lincoln is great, staff were helpful and attentive and the food was extremely tasty. I had a local delicacy a souffle made from local poachers cheese which was an incredible lunch dish.

1st Roast of the year after spending most of January in SE Asia where roasts are an obvious rarity and both not having a Sunday off since our return. Returned to Tower after a bit of a prolonged absence and as always it was top notch. With the removal of Tito's from uphill nowhere can match it for quality and... More

We ate here yesterday evening and the food was excellent, even though the restaurant was busy the staff were friendly and chatty. I had the duck breast which was totally yummy and my partner had the pork which he also enjoyed (he must have done - he cleared the plate!).

Popped in for evening meal on Monday 20th Feb. The place was empty except one other diner. Frankly this was a bit scary - empty restaurants are always a worry. However, I shouldn't have feared, the food and service were excellent! We were given the main restaurant menu and the bar menu. Having looked at both, the bar menu was... More

I came here in January with my family and was blown away by the quality and value of the food here. Because I was so impressed, we booked a table here for Valentine's Day, which was a three course meal with coffee for around £40 a head. The whole meal was pleasant but quite average and definitely of a poorer... More
