If you want a tea room that offers a wide range of veggie and vegan food, Pimentos is the place! Their food menu changes every time I go there so you're not stuck with the same old options and their tasty range of teas and coffees makes the trip up the hill worth it!

Took a disabled friend to the cafe for a treat. Now there are a lot of steps within the building so we sat on ground floor in comfy sofas & I went to order further within cafe. Accessibility of loo is a no no otherwise the cafe is a delight. Wonderful selection of gluten free cakes and homemade selections for... More

This café is excellent - good food, with unusual and interesting choices, a far cry from the usual cheese pies and quiches which so many places seem to think will attract non-meat eaters. They also have an extensive range of teas and coffees - and if you find a tea that you particularly like, cross the road to the Imperial... More

My friend and I ended up visiting this place twice during our weekend to Lincoln, and both times we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious, and the staff were absolutely lovely (we were seated outside, and when the heavens opened and it started to suddenly hail they immediately helped us move all of our food and drinks to an inside...

In Lincoln for the weekend and went to this cafe four times. It has been a highlight of our visit. Great tasting food and a very wide selection for what to have. Would highly recommend any of the salads and the Welsh rabit as well. All the cakes look amazing, managed to try a few of them and they did... More

Pimentos is famous locally for offering vegetarian, vegan and allergy free food and my visit yesterday on the hottest day of summer did not disappoint. Unlike at other eating places when I can only chose from 20% of the menu, yesterday I was able to select from 100%. Despite being really busy the staff were very friendly and helpful and... More

Only ordered welsh rarebit but it was the tastiest cheese on toast ever with a delicious side salad. The cheese was mixed I'm sure with mustard and it gave this dish a kick. Extremely good tea served in a quirky teapot which poured extremely well. Very nice staff with a lovely smile to greet you.would highly recommend this tearoom.

I went with friends there. I think it was not as clean as I thought it should be. It was quaint and it was nice to know that there is a vegeterian place in the town. I thought that food was ok, but nothing extreme.
