There is a wide range of meals on the menu and the fully vegetarian aspect does not harm the menu. The portions are a fair size and the coffee is excellent. The staff are friendly and children are welcome. There are colouring books and crayons freely available. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about food and take great pride in their... More

My teenage daughter and myself were on day trip to Lincoln. Had googled eating places suitable for my vegan daughter and was not disappointed by this quaint little tea shop. They offer vegan snacks and sandwiches along with a good selection of vegan cakes! Is lovely to find somewhere that I can take her where she has several options to... More

Been several times and will continue to visit for our Friday lunch time treat. Delicious food with a fabulous constantly changing menu and vegan cakes to die for. Gluten free options too what more could you ask for !

The vegetarian and vegan options were really outstanding. Although they are not dog friendly, they are happy for dogs to come into the first part of the cafe. We had our Shiloh Shepherd with us, so that was a great help. Good service, even though they were very busy.

It was great to find a cafe where one can enjoy delicious food with lots of choice, friendly staff and your dog is welcome too! Well done. A must to visit.

I have been frequenting (infrequently!) this nice little speciality 'teas' café for years, a very good selection of teas [mostly from "Imperial Teas" across the road] & coffee and a good selection of snacks. There are two floors, no ground floor, up tight and difficult staircases, so not really suitable for the less able-bodied, but neither is Steep Hill !!... More

Popped in for a coffee with high expectations after the the positive reviews on TripAdvisor, what a disappointment!! Only coffee in a cafeteria, no latte or cappuccino!! Extensive list of teas available but I don't drink tea!! The tearoom is very oldie worldie!! The table we sat at was not level; hence the soup we ordered slopped over the edge... More

A lovely, warm welcoming tearooms in delightful slightly rambling buildings on Steep Hill. Food and drinks are excellent. Particularly enjoy the range of coffees. Good range of breakfast items-thick cut buttery toast is recommended. Main courses are tasty and imaginative. Cakes are also recommended. On my last visit, i enjoyed a lovely slice of chocolate and beetroot cake. Staff are... More

We visited in December and all I can say is that this place is worth its weight in gold. Food, drinks and service is always above and beyond. What I love is that it feels like being in a home ❤️ best place in the East Midlands by far. Thank you pimentos.

Back in Lincoln again and if you know Lincoln, there are plenty of places to stop and take a bite, however we had good refreshment here last time we were in Lincoln, we decided to wait till we were back at the Pimento for our drinks. Again, helpful staff, good service and nice and warm this cold day. Thanks guys..

Thank Jacques-Pierre77
