“Eccentricity and quality at a great price”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We visited this restaurant after reading other trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The waiter Oliver was very friendly and welcoming, you could tell that he had worked there for a number of years and was very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was to a very high standard and had lots of flavour. Whilst the décor is a little dated I think this added to the charm of the place. 2 of us had a 3 course meal with two carafe of wine all this for £44!!! great value. Would certainly return

“First time Friday”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Just come back from a weeken break in Lincoln where we had gone (primarily) to see the Waddington Air Show.

As we had never been to Lincoln before we booked Crust for dinner on the Friday evening based on the other positive reviews and we were not let down in any way shape or form. All the food we ordered was spot on, tasty, good service and washed down with a very good red wine and all at very sensible prices, in fact3 courses + wine for £53 - outstanding value.

Couldn't figure out why this lovely local restaurant serving good food with good wine wasn't busier? To tell you the truth not that bothered really, we enjoyed it all but maybe the decor has put some people off? It is a little quirky in this day and age but that doesn't detract from the quality of what is served up and the ambience of the place was just right for a very enjoyable night.

We also met some great guys from Kansas who were displaying aircraft at Waddington and i think they also had a good night although maybe, as it was 4th July, just that bit more special for them?!

So, well done Crust, hope to return at some point.

“What a surprise”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

The service was great, although we did have a 45m wait for our starters- I don't think that this was usual and my boyfriend demolished a bottle of wine. The Muscadet is highly recommended.

The starters (melon) were exactly what it said on the tin. The main courses were delicious and definitely cooked to order. Great value and so much choice.

Will definitely return and highly recommend to others who must inspect the decor

“Unique”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

This is a restaurant like no other we have ever been in. My wife and I went there for our 44th wedding anniversary. The menu was varied and the food was cooked and presented to a very high standard. The waiter was charming and very attentive. The owner and chef (Victor) came out at the end and had a chat. When he discovered it was our anniversary he went away and came back with a card. If you are looking for a unique experience, then this is the place for you! We would definitely recommend it.
