If you decide to dine here, don't expect anything remotely 21st century, but DO expect delicious food, excellent traditional service, a very good wine selection and surprising value for money. We'll definitely be back... tomorrow maybe! 😁

You can easily walk past this place but it is worth the stop. The restaurant is a steakhouse and oh yes it is fantastic. We had a three course meal, which was lovely and very good value for money.

Crust is a little one man restaurant at the bottom of Steepe Hill and is easy to miss.A 3 course lunch menu is about £8 and value for money.I have been on every visit to Lincoln and have never been disappointed.Dont expect the Ritz decor it's all about value for money.

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

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...
