The Stag's Head is a 10 minute walk from the heart of Lincoln. It serves good food, well presented and the service is polite and attentive. The prices are very reasonable.

We had a lovely meal here and the inside is good, but the beer garden outside needs some TLC - there were dirty tables and the kid's slide was filthy

The Stags Head is under new management, and we now serve locally sourced, fresh food. We have two menus: daylight for the classics and lunchtime offerings and candlelight for the more adventurous and evening diners. We also have a daily specials board to showcase some of our food. We serve from5pm until 930pm Tuesday to Friday, and Saturday with a carvery on a Sunday from 12pm until 6pm (service hours subject to change). We recommend booking as we do get very busy and have limited seating. We also boast a function suite for upto 70 people - we have buffet menus which can be tailored to suit your needs and can cater for most events. Alongside the function suite, our cathedral restaurant can hold upto 40 people for smaller events.
