I was in Lincoln for the festive holidays and was staying in Lincoln. We were looking for a place for lunch when we stumble to this place. The entrance was not grand and it was located on the 1st Floor, and you can miss it if not attentive. We went up and had a table. There was another table already... More

Have eaten here many times now and it really is a hidden gem. Food is great every time and the price is good value. Also the service is very professional and friendly. We love eating here.

If you like genuine retro decor, old fashioned personal service from the chef, and good honest freshly cooked food at prices not seen on menus for many years, then give Crust a go. I went today for lunch with a group of friends, and walked into a delightful , and memory provoking time warp. Delicious food, (and lots of it... More

I visited the Crust yesterday with a friend from Norway. We took chef's evening menu. We both liked it. I visit this place regularly, it is always nice to be here. You don't find such places anymore much. The chef always remembers what you like, which is very special. The value for money is exceptional, and the house red wine... More

Recommended - definitely recommended (if you like real food). I visited last week with my wife and two teenage children when visiting Lincoln for the weekend. My meal was classic good food (lamb cutlets) with vegetables, served jointly by the waiter and the chef. When my children ordered banana boat for dessert, the waiter responded by reaching over to a... More

We stopped for a meal at this resurant which looked as if time had stopped in the 1970s, the staff very friendly, but clearly the resurant needed some TLC, the menu was to much, offering to many choices, it needed to be condensed and updated, the food was not of quality or value which was a shame, we so wanted...

Visited here after a recommendation from my Mam and dad who had lunch a awhile ago. Mam and dad are in there early 60's and I can see why they loved the place. It's so quaint and a place from a bygone era. In today's high gloss, clean line restaurants with marble and mirrored walls this is something completely different,... More

Lincoln is wonderful and awash with eateries. All of them good, but there is a similar American diner inspired vein running through a lot of their menus -to be honest exactly what I usually go for. But, whilst my wife was 'embedded' in a shop, I stumbled upon an almost hidden doorway next to a menu...Crust. Classic dishes at affordable... More

Time warp but not the good version. Very personal service and attention on the slow side, unnecessary complicated menus, fair quality food-not great nor bad, good value. Mixed review but overall wouldn't recommend or go again, sorry; limited appeal.
