Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I just love this gallery! Situated in a grade II listed building it’s the perfect place to find beautiful, unique, hand crafted items from a diverse group of artist’s. From silver jewellery to ceramics, from paintings to textile art and so much more. If you time your visit right you can also visit the upstairs exhibition space….see the Harding House website for future exhibitions.

    Lovely small gallery, well worth a visit. Eclectic mix of art, many paintings of Lincoln through the ages along with ceramics and glass. Loved the Grayson Perry vases as well as enamel pieces perfectly displayed in small cabinet. Easy walking distance from Lincoln Centre or the Cathedral

    My little boy says that I should write ‘my little boy has never been happier’ and that’s absolutely true! He’s coeliac and we have found it really difficult to find places to enjoy a treat as a family… until today! The staff were incredibly knowledgeable, went out of their way to ensure there was no cross contamination and nothing was too much trouble. They checked everything so carefully and I could not be more impressed. Thank you so much Daisy Made. The ice cream is amazing too!

    Lovely little shop with an adequate selection of fudges. I was able to taste a piece before purchase. The fudge is not cheap £13.00 for 3 small bags but was a treat whilst visiting Lincoln. Be prepared to queue as the shop is very small and covid safe. We purchased the sea salt fudge which was delicious, alongside a vanilla and a rum and raisin fudge, these also tasted good.

    Our first visit to Lincoln and Imperial Teas. An Aladdin's cave of teas (with some excellent coffee choices also) and is certainly somewhere that you want to browse.
    I was fortunate that we visited at a quiet time and so were able to do just that. Staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
    We bought a new coffee (which is excellent) and some teas which I am looking forward to trying.

    We'll be back!

    One of my favourite parts about my home town I grew up in, lincoln. This lovely little sweet shop is at the bottom of steep hill and I will be sure to visit every time I come back home and pop into town!
    They have all the best old school sweeties!! And the staff are just great.
    I love how tiny it is and you get such a great experience when you’re in there, always a pleasant conversation!
    Hope this stays for a long time more. Big love!
